For all of you Java developers out there that have be searching for tools to help with your Intel® Active Management Technology solutions, your search is over. I’d like to introduce you to the Intel® WS-Management Java Client Library, available for download here.
Have you ever been working and had a patch come down from your IT department that you had to install now. Or how about a virus scan that brought your machine to a crawl in the middle of your work. If so, you may wish your IT department would use AMT Alarm Clock, a feature released in the 5.1 version of Intel Active Management Technology (AMT).
If you have extended Active Directory (AD) for use with your AMT clients and Kerberos authentication, you may have issues connecting to the AMT WebUI for those machines when using Internet Explorer (IE). This is related to authentication settings.
If you experience this problem, you can first try another browser (e.g. Firefox) to see if you can connect to the WebUI. If successful, then you can try the following configurations in your IE settings.
The date/time used by Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) is maintained by a protected real time clock (PRTC) running within the Manageability Engine.
The clock is used for a variety of reasons in AMT including date/time checks required for TLS and Kerberos usage, timestamps for events and logging, and maintaining alarms for the Alarm Clock feature.
Setting the Clock
The clock can be set in a few ways, dependent on how AMT was provisioned.
