Enable/Disable the User Interfaces

For Remote Access to work with a user initiated interface or for a local user-initiated request to work, the interface must first be enabled. Local or Remote User Access includes the following interfaces:

   BIOS – Enables a user request connection from the BIOS menu

   Agent – Enables user request connection from the OS using a software agent

The following steps describe how to enable/disable the user request interfaces.

1.  Retrieve the instance of AMT_UserInitiatedConnectionService, where the “Name” key equals “Intel(r) AMT User Initiated Connection Service”.

2.  Invoke AMT_UserInitiatedConnectionService.RequestStateChange with the following parameter:




     32768– Disable the BIOS and the Operating System interfaces

     32769– Enable the BIOS interface only

     32770– Enable the Operating System Interface only

     32771– Enable the BIOS and the Operating System interfaces.  This is the default value.

$inputObject =$userInitiatedConnectionServiceRef.CreateMethodInput("RequestStateChange")


$outputObject =$userInitiatedConnectionServiceRef.InvokeMethod($inputObject)

$returnValue =$outputObject.GetProperty("ReturnValue")
