Beginning with Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) release 3.0, Intel introduced support for the industry standard WS-Management protocol. This allows management software to use a combination of standard CIM classes, as well as Intel specific classes, to perform Intel® AMT operations. Support for the WS-Management specification enables software developers and IT professionals to leverage off-the-shelf infrastructure and tools to interact with Intel® AMT platforms. But what about using WS-Management based software in conjunction with Intel® AMT platforms older than release 3.0? Intel has shipped many platforms that can only support a firmware version of 2.6 or below. Can WS-Management based software be used with these older Intel platforms?
Enter the Translator
The Intel® WS-Management Translator makes it possible for WS-Management based software to be used in conjunction with Intel® AMT platforms older than version 3.0. Using the translator, management software can send WS-Management commands to the translator, the translator will in turn perform the equivalent operation on an Intel® AMT device using a proprietary SOAP based protocol understood by all Intel® AMT platforms.

Genscript is a tool for activating Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) features in a scriptable environment. Genscript generates Visual Basic® scripts that can be applied to a single machine or many machines. These scripts programmatically can activate variou6s Intel AMT features using Windows Remote Management (WinRM). Genscript can also be used in conjunction with the Intel WS-Management Translator to perform initial setup of Intel AMT clients and programmatically activate features on AMT clients that don’t natively support WinRM. Intel AMT clients that are already setup, and natively support the WS-Management interface, will not require the assistance of the Intel WS-Management translator software.
