Wireless Power-on & Patch using  Windows XP Clients over Secure Networks

Version 2
    A Known Method for managing wireless patch deployment for XP clients using SCCM Console
    Applies to SCCM SP1 & SP2
    Also applies to open networks without 802.1x

    When AMT wakes up a windows XP client using out of band wireless connection SCCM will launch and run the Advertisement as the local system account. However, in order for a successful launch of the Advertisement the client needs to maintain the wireless connection at the OS level prior to any user logging in. With an XP supplicant there is no way to maintain the wireless connection without having a user logging in

     

    The solution lies in setting up an administrator profile that will allow machine authentication prior to any user logging in enabling advertisements to run successfully.
