Matt Royer wrote in June about some of the new AMT-related features being included in Service Pack 2 for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007. I recently installed ConfigMgr SP2 in my lab environment, and wanted to follow up on Matt's post by sharing some screenshots of the new AMT features, for those of you that may not be beta testing SP2

 

** The updated AMT Settings screen, which now features the option to set the power package for the management controller.

** The new Provisioning Schedule screen (no more editing your sitectrl.ct0 file!)

** The new main 802.1x & Wireless Profile Configuration screen (there are a couple of detail screens below)

I don't have a provisioned client in my lab yet, but once I do, I will see if I can investigate the updated Microsoft OOB Console, and capture some screenshots. As Matt's post stated, there should be added functionality for inputting information into the 3PDS (Third-party data store), so I assume there will at least be that change.

 

Cheers,
