Integrating Intel® AMT Discovery into a Management Console
Determining the Feature Set of the Device
- CPU (not provided by acuconfig.exe): Filter for only the Intel® Core™ i3 processor, Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Intel® Core™ M processor, and the Intel® Xeon® processor family.
- LMS.exe service: This is the Intel® WMI provider that lets the discovery tools communicate with the Intel AMT firmware. This service may not be installed if a custom OS is used. The missing files can be obtained by downloading the Intel® Management Engine Interface (Intel® MEI) driver package from the OEM website. Tip: generally classified as a "chipset driver" by OEMs.
- To determine if the LMS.exe is running, look for the service, or by parsing the verbose output log of acuconfig.exe.
- Values found in the discovery XML:
- <IsMEIEnabled> - Set by the system manufacturer, value must be true for Intel AMT to be enabled. Value is not dependent on LMS.exe.
- <IsAMTEnabledInBIOS> - Must be set to true. Some OEMs allow Intel AMT to be disabled in the BIOS, requiring it be enabled in the BIOS to activate Intel AMT. Tag value is dependent on LMS.exe
- <AMTSKU> - Which can be Intel® Standard Manageability or Intel AMT Full (Intel® vPro™ technology) or Intel® Small Business Advantage (Intel® SBA). This value declares the feature set; tag is dependent on LMS.exe.
