Intel® Active Management Technology: Downloads

Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) is a set of firmware-resident hardware capabilities that enable network-management applications to perform sophisticated remote functions, even when the target device is powered off or has a corrupted operating system (OS). Because this technology helps to safeguard system administrators' ability to manage systems remotely and minimize costly desk-side visits, Intel AMT represents a substantial advantage to customers. Because the means for customers to implement this technology relies on software implementations, Intel makes a powerful set of tools available to software makers, helping to facilitate the integration of Intel AMT into network-manageability applications.

These are all tools that can be used when experimenting with or writing applications for Intel® AMT. Here are some brief descriptions and when to use them:

Intel AMT Software Development Kit (SDK): Provides the low-level programming capabilities to enable developers to build manageability applications that take full advantage of Intel AMT. Provides sample code and all the Application Programming Interface (APIs) needed for implementing Intel® AMT. Both the Intel AMT RDK and the DTK use the APIs provided in the SDK. Use the most recent release of the SDK to integrate Intel® AMT into your application.

Open Source Manageability Developer Tool Kit (DTK): A set of open source tools for management for computer that support Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) . This package includes many tools and source code for developers interested in building their own application or users who want to learn about Intel AMT. It's internationalized into English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese and French thanks to community support. The source is compiled using Visual Studio 2010 and all of the tools will run in true 64bit on platforms that support it. When possible, these tools have also been enhanced to make use of the peer-to-peer networking system also available on this site.

Intel vPro Technology Platform Solution Manager: The Intel® vPro™ Platform Solution Manager is a framework application that allows you to launch plugin applications (referred to in this guide as "plugins") to remotely manage your Intel vPro technology based PC clients.  Intel® vPro™ PSM comes with several preconfigured plugins, which perform tasks such as power management, KVM Remote Control, and system defense, among others.

Intel AMT High-Level API: The Intel AMT High Level Application Programming Interface (HLAPI) provides software developers with a simple interface to the Intel AMT features.

Intel AMT Setup and Configuration Service (SCS) automates the task of populating Intel AMT platforms with credentials and parameters that enable them to be administered remotely. This provides the developer or ISV with the tools to set up and configure Intel AMT devices. The Setup and Configuration Service (SCS) allows for most aspects of setup and configuration to be completed through a remote management console. It supports end-user environments that implement TLS security and a DHCP network.

Intel® WS-Management Java Client Library: A lightweight WS-Management protocol library designed for software developers who want to quickly and easily support WS-Man but want to avoid the complexity of writing their own Java-based WS-Man client library. The library's original intention was to support Intel® Active Management Technology development, but can be extended to support management of any CIM resource.

Intel® WS-Management Translator for vPro™ Processor Technology: Use the Intel® WS-Management Translator to send WS-Management commands to manage Intel® AMT platforms older than release 3.0, which understands only legacy SOAP-based protocol. The source code for this tool is also available for download.

Intel® vPro Technology Activator Utility is the next generation of the Remote Configuration tool. This is a Windows executable that runs locally on an Intel® Active Management technology(Intel AMT)-enabled platform.

Intel® AMT Open Source Drivers and Tools: Intel® AMT Linux support includes two components that allow interaction between the Intel® AMT FW and the Linux OS: Intel® MEI (Intel® Management Engine Interface) driver and LMS (Local Management Service) driver.

Intel AMT Add-on for Microsoft* SMS 2003: The Intel® AMT Add-on plug-in enables Microsoft* SMS 2003 to discover and manage Intel® VPro™ PCs remotely.

Intel AMT Management Pack for Microsoft OpsMgr and Essentials v3.0: This management pack enables the users of these applications to take advantage of the advanced, hardware-based system management capabilities of Intel® AMT, which are built into PCs with Intel® VPro™ processor technology.

Intel Desktop Boards Executive Series: Intel® Desktop Boards Executive Series are designed to offer new levels of manageability, security, and power-efficient performance while offering support for the Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family.

I have read most of what these pages have to offer but like most articles or writings left on these type of sites they manage to say so much but still tell you so little of any relevance. I'm still none the wiser about how to achieve a simple thing like switching on my Intel Active Management Technology.


I'm not even saying I understand exactly what this is, (but please don't send me pages and pages of psychobabble telling me what it is).


What I'm trying to say is when I switch on my computer a small intel logo comes up with a big red cross on it saying; word for word;


"Intel Active Management technology (intel@)AMT) status:  Disabled. 

To enable or disable Intel AMT, contact your authorized system administrator"

I'm still the non the wiser about how to switch on my intel AMT even after going to that page which tells me a heap of nothing!!!!

My PC is a Dell OPTIPLEX GX620.

and more, sorry...
I have too a Intel SDP - D3CD1 Family without drivers. If anyone has drivers, please contact with me or publish at forum.
I need this computers for to do more test with its AMT6.

Thanks a lot,

I have a computer with AMT6 (D3CB2 Family) but lost the drivers.
From the website can not be downloaded, does anyone have the drivers? I need to make some tests with the computer but I can not install Windows Vista/7/2008 with all drivers.
Thanks a lot, ...

It's fine to say call your system integrator and he'll take care of the problem for you, but what if you're the small time system integrator and spending hours and hours trying to fix this problem on a custom built computer that you're making about $150 on at most. This is obviously a common problem and Asus support is a further waste of time. Someone has to have an answer instead of passing the buck. I do not believe the fix varies that much between manufacturers.

I have a SEANIX with a Core 2 Duo that came with Windows Vista. I have upgraded to Windows Professional 7. I recently did a re-install to clean out the machine and completed all the updates. I am getting an error every time i boot telling me that "ItelR Active Management Technology status is disabled and that I am to contact the administrator" I am the administrator. Yet it does not allow me to make any changes, nor do I even know where to go to activate it.

I have some printers that are local to this machine and shared on ah homegroup that are not even showing up. It may be due to this problem, but I am not sure.

Can anyone help me??

I have recently bought a second-hand computer and find it has Intel Active Management activated, is this a security problem and if so how do I deactivate it?

Hello Peter, You may not have a need for Intel(R) Active Management Technology, as it is intended for network management. But you may wish to contact Microsoft* to find out if they have a compatibility update.

I have the following error message since I switched from Windows Vista to Windows 7, "Your version of Intel Active Management Technology is not compatible with this version of Windows." How can I fix it or who can offer help to me in detail? I'm just a user, not a professional. Thank you all.

Regards, Peter

Hello Kris, Yes they are your system integrator. The one who puts the system components together.
