Reset the Flash Wear-out Protection

The following steps describe how to reset the flash wearout protection counter.


Starting with Release 6.2, performing this flow does not cause the flash wearout protection counters to reset. The method returns a PT_STATUS_SUCCESS indication (for backward compatibility), but otherwise does nothing. The method was removed entirely in Release 11.0.


1.  Retrieve the instance of AMT_SetupAndConfigurationService, where the “Name” key equals “Intel(r) AMT Setup and Configuration Service”.

2.  Invoke the ResetFlashWearOutProtection function.
