AMT Scripts from Linux or FreeBSD 6

AMT Scripts from Linux or FreeBSD 6

Hello,

Currently we have few machines that are running intel AMT version: 7.1.52-build 1176.

We have a need to preform a scripted reset. I tried to use CURL method and ran in to issues with the hidden token field, since it changes for each curl call... 

Whats the best way to accomplish a scripted reset ? 

 

Any help is really appreciated, I need to get this done very soon so please let me know. 

 

Thank you in advance !

Hello,

I'm not sure what you mean by a "Scripted Reset?"  Are you trying to put AMT back to Factory Mode via a script?

Hello,

Thank you very for a reply. 

No, we are trying to remote control -- reset. Basicly do a forced restart using a normal boot. 

 

When I say scripted, I mean without user interaction. We would like to create a script that reboots computers when a ping or telnet to a port is lost.... 

Forgot to mention, this needs to happen on a linux or freebsd based OS (thats the machine that will run the script to check machine status and upon down status reset it with normal boot)

So you are trying to do a Remote Control restart through AMT (just to be clear), correct?  

And you want to do this in the case where you cannot ping it?  But if you can't find it in your network, I'm not sure how you would remotely reset it since you need it to be accessible on the network in order to get the reset command from your script?  Can you ping the ME?

Hello,

Yes we want to do a remote reset/restart if the OS IP is not reachable. The AMT portion stays available, but OS is eather frozen or is not accessable. 

We want to make a script to run on our Linux/FreeBSD machine in order to accomplish the above. Script will ping or telnet/NC to the OS IP and if that IP is not reachable it will reset/reload/reboot the machine via AMT remote control.

I hope I`m making my self clearer now.
