We have a situation where some of our AMT systems have been configured with different username/passwords. i.e there's one set of credential per server stack. If we move systems between these stacks, our AMT functionality will stop working. We are looking for a way to detect this and autmoatically unprovision the system and then re-provision it. A few questions:
1. Is there a way to locally execute a tool on the system to un-provision AMT ? for ex. activator.exe or is it always needed to have a remote machine or remote server be available ?
2. We tried using unprovision amt utility from a remote server and unprovisioned it to SMB mode(which is what we use). We found after the unprovision, that when we try to re-provision using activator.exe, we get the following error:
================= Activator log =================
Starting log 02-05-2012 15:05:16 :
Remote Configuration not Enabled
System is pre configured
System is in PSK mode
Please change MEBx password and/or set PID/PPS. This can
be done via MEBx or using the USB option.
Exit with code 7 (Machine is missing preconfiguration
The interesting part is that if we simply get into MeBIOS and do absolutely nothing but just log in and then exit and re-run activator.exe everything works just fine and the system gets re-configured. Any idea why this happens as we cannot really be doing this.
Thanks in advance for your help!
