Whether you are performing the initial AMT configuration (setup) or configuring any other features on the vPro platform, you just need to send the appropriate SOAP/EOI or WS-MAN commands to the Intel Management Engine through the network interface.  Once the properly formatted commands are received along with sufficient permission to invoke the command, the Intel Management Engine executes the commands, setting the configuration.

The Scripting Framework (also known as GenScript) provides a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to generate a VBScript with the appropriate WS-MAN commands for configuring a variety of Intel vPro/AMT settings.  These VBScripts can be run “as is” against the vPro/AMT client over the network interface or used as reference code for custom integration / solutions.   Since WS-MAN support was introduced with AMT 3.0 firmware, the VBScript generated by the Scripting Framework can also be run through the WS-MAN Translator to support AMT 2.x firmware versions.

The initial release of the Scripting Framework includes support for:

·         Base Setup (Non-TLS & TLS) through the Intel WS-MAN Translator

·         Setting Remote Admin Password

·         Adding / Removing Digest / Kerberos Users

·         Setting Wireless / Wireless 802.1x settings (Including certificate request)

·         Setting Management Engine Power Policies

The Scripting Framework (GenScript) executable and the User Guide can be downloaded from the following location: http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-ws-management-translator/
