Pardon my ignorance and/or if this is posted in the completely wrong forum, and feel free to point me in the right direction.
I have an Intel D975-XBX2 motherboard that would seem to support ASF/AMT. The latest BIOS has an ASF enable option, and a previous BIOS mentions AMT in the description. The tech product spec says AMT is a manufacturing option, but I can't find a part number list to cross reference.
My primary goal for this system is remote power cycle or reset. Console redirection or event logging would be cool, but not necessary.
Can I do this with ASF? If so, what software do I use? I've used Intel's ISM / DPC for my IPMI-enabled server boards, but can't find anything about ASF management utilities.
Second, in general, can boards that support ASF be upgraded to AMT or is it completely different technology? Most of the stuff I've found seems to indicate they're similar and I've come across mentions on this forum of an "activate" tool that can "upgrade" a board to AMT.
Thanks for the help!
