The identification and activation of vPro systems that are not remote configuration capable and that have not completed the provisioning/activation process prior to being placed in the field can be a daunting task in a large enterprise environment. Especially in the common situation where vPro systems have been deployed before backend infrastructure is in place.
To help address this, we created a small utility that leverages MEInfo to capture MEBx details related to activation, and store this data in the Windows registry. This allows for automated inventory methods to collect and report the information enterprise wide, allowing detailed planning of remote activation strategy.
The utility requires the same set of prerequistes as MEInfo to produce full detail, such as the HECI drivers to be in place, and Administrator priviledges on the local machine, but is small, silent, and Software Deployment friendly.
All of the data that iAMT Scan generates is stored in the local system registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\INTEL\iAMT SCAN DATA
