Intel® vPro™ Technology with Intel® Active Management Technology & Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (SCCM) SP1 White Paper

Version 2

    Enterprises running Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 have the ability to

    activate Intel® vPro™ technology with Intel® Active Management Technology™ (AMT)

    now. Plans to upgrade the infrastructure to System Center Configuration Manager 2007

    SP1(SCCM 2007 SP1) for Intel AMT should not delay activation of Intel AMT today.

    Implementing Intel AMT management capabilities prior to migrating to SCCM 2007 SP1

    will minimize the complexity of the migration project by ensuring that organizational

    support of Intel AMT management is already in place. Tools for migration of Intel AMT

    management from SMS to SCCM make this easy. This approach allows an organization to

    realize the benefits of Intel AMT now while providing a smooth migration path to SCCM

    2007 SP1.
