I've started a discussion thread titled Your vPro Tools Wishlist Hoping to gather input from the community on suggestions for tools that would make things easier. Be that deployment tools, provisioning tools, what have you.






I'm trying to build a list from both internal and external sources so we can prioritize and start delivering some valuable utilities. Here's your chance to let us know about your idea for that super special tool that will make things easier.






What are the rules for creating ME passwords?  I can't tell you how many times I've been asked this, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.  In reality we've documented these rules in explicit detail in the Network Interface Guide of the AMT SDK .  However that's not something a general end-user is typically going to want to read.


Gael Holmes has recently blogged about these rules.  If you're at all interested, check out her post .











I thought I'd provide a short introduction to the vPro Expert Training Program. I'll have more details to share as we get into the 4th Quarter of this year. As this program is still in development, some of the information below is subject to change, fair warning :D.


What is the vPro Expert Training Program?

The vPro Expert Training Program is a series of public, technical training courses currently in development. These courses will be offered to the general public starting in the 4th quarter of 2007. Specific dates/times/logistics are not available at present.
