Intel vPro OOB Console Requirements
Posted by Trevor Sullivan on 2009/06/30
I’d like to take a moment to document the requirements to get a support user’s workstation configured properly to manage a vPro system.
All Operating Systems
Install ConfigMgr Console Hotfix
Install the Microsoft KB960804 hotfix on any system on which you install the ConfigMgr console
Enable Internet Explorer Kerberos Authentication
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Feature Control\FEATURE_INCLUDE_PORT_IN_SPN_KB908209
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Feature Control\FEATURE_INCLUDE_PORT_IN_SPN_KB908209
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Value Name: iexplore.exe
Internal Issuing CA Certificate
In order for serial-over-LAN to function correctly, you’ll need to copy your subordinate / issuing CA certificate from the Intermediate CA store to Trusted Root CA store on each client with the ConfigMgr console installed. If you don’t perform this step, you should still be able to connect to the AMT device, but serial-over-LAN will fail.
Windows Vista / 7
Note: Windows 7 64-bit Build 7100 does not work with the Serial-over-LAN feature
Enable Telnet access via Windows Features dialog
If I’ve left anything out, please let me know so that I can update this blog post. Thanks!
