If you have just purchased and Intel® AMT Client and are wondering how to get started managing your new system, you can watch this short ~10 minute video on how to quickly configure Intel AMT. This video also demonstrates how to unconfigure Intel AMT from inside the MEBx environment.

There is NO line for "unconfigure" and AMT is no longer detected on my Dell Optiplex 780.
It was previously version ME, and it PREVIOUSLY WORKED! Just BIOS & chipset updates - nothing more.
It is a vPro system.
Prev was able to get to AMT functions and, at one time, long ago, I gave the AMT/vPro part a static ip.

But now, it always gives error during "Aquiring Intel AMT Configuration" - 2003-08 - ERROR FIRMWARE CONNECTION FAILURE.
AMT tab shows: MEI driver Enabled ( and LMS: Enabled (, Power Policy unknown.

I did have Dell send me a new power supply - and I replaced that, but that is all that has happened.

Prev BIOS was A09, still got same 'connection failure' on A09 (over the past 3+ months); so, recenty I updated to BIOS A12.
Still no go - same error. We tried resetting, but maybe we did not fully reset it???

Troubleshooting I have seen - mentions "Connection failure happens sometimes if the system has trouble getting to the IP of the ME/AMT portion."

Intel Management & Security Status app shows "AMT Reviewed, "Intel AMT disabled 03/29/2012" and "not detected," but shows ILS and the other thing
Only thing I did was add video card, which now I have removed, to make it back like it was.

Still no go.
I do not have a provisioning server - only using MEBx, but since there is NO 'unprovision' option, I am stuck! Need this to work.
HELP! Please.
