The WMI interface is implemented using the Intel ME WMI provider (MeProv.DLL) included by OEMs in Intel® vPro™ installations. The provider abstracts lower level commands to a set of classes that support discovery and configuration. This capability is part of Intel AMT Release 6.0.
WMI applications can be easily–written scripts that allow ad hoc examination of the Intel AMT and ME state without the need to develop programs in a more complex environment.
The methods in the WMI classes are declared static. Therefore, the methods cannot be executed from instances.
The WMI interface supports discovery of the following parameters, among others:
• Firmware version
• Setup and configuration (provisioning) state
• Current network settings
• ME settings
Imitating Remote Configuration
The WMI interface can be used to initiate remote configuration of Intel AMT by providing a one-time password (OTP) and a DNS suffix and commanding Intel AMT to start a remote configuration sequence.
The SDK contains three sample
scripts demonstrating use of the WMI provider, located
• SystemProperties.vbs – demonstrates using the WMI provider to retrieve Intel AMT and ME settings and properties.
• MEevents.vbs – demonstrates how to receive events from the Intel ME WMI provider.
• Activate.vbs – demonstrates starting the Intel AMT remote configuration process.
