Here are some general steps to provisioning an AMT client using SCCM SP1 Import Out of Band Computers Wizard. Please note that until the WS-MAN translator is released, you will only be able to Provision and Manager AMT 3.x or higher machines.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Within the Configuration Manager Console, expand “Site Database” -> “Computer Management” -> “Collections” -> “All Systems”. Right click on “Collections” and select “Import Out of Band Computers”.

  2. When the “Import Computer for Out of Band Management Wizard” appears, select “Import single computer” and then click “Next”.

  3. When asked for the information associated to the vPro client you are importing, enter in the following and press “Next”:

    • Computer Name

    • FQDN

    • MAC Address

    • SMBIOS GUID (aka UUID)

      Note: The Computer Name, FQDN, and UUID are required for provisioning. The MAC Address is used for conflict resolution and not required. Feel free to use all 1’s in the MAC Address.

  4. On the “Data Preview” screen, confirm the entries entered and click next.

  5. On the “Choose Target Collection” Screen, select “Add New Computers only to the All Systems Collection” and click next. When presented with the Confirmation Screen, click “Next”. You may choose to put the client in another collection if you wish.

  6. On the “Confirmation” Screen, confirm that import was a success, and click “Close”.

  7. Right Click on “Collection” and select “Update Collection Membership”. Click “Yes” to confirm that you want to proceed.

  8. Within the Configuration Manager Console, expand “Site Database” -> “Computer Management” -> “Collections” -> “All Systems”. Right Click on “Refresh” and confirm that AMT client is now in the collection list.

  9. You should now see the vPro Client in the Collection in an “unprovisioned” state. The provisioning process may take a couple minutes. You can track the provisioning process in the c:\program files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs\amtopmgr.log Log.

  10. Right Click on “Collection” and select “Update Collection Membership”. Click “Yes” to proceed. Within the Configuration Manager Console, expand “Site Database” -> “Computer Management” -> “Collections” -> “All Systems”.

  11. Right Click on “Refresh” and confirm that AMT client is now in the collection list. Once the provisioning process has been completed you should see the device listed as “Provisioned” in the Collection list.
