I am excited to announce the release of Intel® Manageability Commander.  Built from the widely used MESHCommander application, Intel® Manageability Commander will make it significantly easier to take advantage of Intel® AMT out of band hardware management features provided on Intel® vPro™ platforms.


Intel® Manageability Commander can be installed both a stand alone application and on your Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager* (SCCM) server to integrate Out of Band management features in Microsoft SCCM current build 1511 and later.




Top features of Intel® Manageability Commander:

  • Discover, diagnose and manage Intel® AMT configured PCs remotely
  • View and solve user PC and Operating System issues via integrated KVM remote control (Keyboard, Video, Mouse)
  • Integrate with Microsoft SCCM current build version 1511 and later
    • When SCCM deployments are configured to wake systems, the Intel® Manageability Commander SCCM wake service will perform an Intel® AMT secure power on
    • Collections in SCCM can be manually powered on using the Intel® Manageability Commander SCCM console extension
    • Intel® Manageability Commander can be launched on a per system basis from the SCCM right click system context menu to get access to all of the supported Intel® AMT features directly from SCCM






Additional Intel® Manageability Commander features include:

  • View and modify network settings of Intel® AMT.  If the PC has a wireless interface, users can add multiple wireless profiles to connect to Intel® AMT using the wireless interface
    • Configure Intel® AMT security features such as System Defense, Audit Log, and Access Control List
    • Display Intel® AMT events and filter events by keyword
    • Enable or disable Intel® AMT features on a configured system directly from Intel® Manageability Commander’s user interface. Any text that is shown in a blue color can be clicked on and used to change that setting


    To add Intel® AMT discovery and configuration task sequences, you can also install the Intel® SCS Add-on for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager.
