AMT versions

Hello again,

For a long time now i have been familiar with the AMT 2.1 functionality, however in the last few posts i have seen references to many new versions and one of our customers recentsly asked me what the differance was between AMT 2.1 and 2.2. Is there a document available that specifies the diffrences between all these new versions? Its important for me to know this so that i can give the correct advice to customers planning to purchase AMT capable systems.

Sample SCA vs SCS

Hi all,

Sample SCA = Sample setup and configuration Application (provided in Inte AMT SDK)

SCS = Setup and Configuration Service

Does any one uses sample SCA in large environments, I studied how sample SCA works and about its configuration settings, I was going to use Sample SCA, then I heard of SCS, SCS looks more managed and may be easier to use in large environments.

Now I want to know whether its good to use SCA, the deployment environment has a few thousand nodes.

SCS - Exception while provisioning AMT

SCS is set to work without TLS and it is not integrated with Active Directory yet.

Unable to fully unprovision intel AMT platform using BIOS

Hi all,

1) I initially configured intel amt machine to Small Business mode and tested its features, that worked.

2) Then I manually put PID/PPS pair in that machine and did appropriate SCA configuration to to test it in enterprise mode, it did't work, its OK.

3) Now I am trying to unconfige the AMT machine using BIOS, but its not working, I want PID/PPS pair erased. BIOS is not even showing PID/PPS option there.

Problems Provisioning AMT machine with USB

Hi Ylian and Holmes,

I have problem configuring AMT machine with USB. I inititally configured AMT in small business mode to test features with AMT Commander, it worked.

Then I un-provisioned AMT (I think I did it correctly), used create_usb_file.bat (I modified this batch file a bit) to format usb and it created the setup.bin file in the usb. but it is not configuring AMT with PID/PSS,

I plugin usb, start pc (pc is now in factory mode), but it does't reads PID/PPS from USB ..
