    vPro Host Name Update



      I have a problem with the Host Name Update in vPro PCs.



      PC Configuration:


      • not branded (local manufacturer);

      • MotherboardDQ965GF (AMT 2.1.3);

      • latest BIOS update (25, Nov, 2007);

      • Windows XP Pro SP2;

      • latest ME drivers;

      • Intel vPro Test Utility (ctpenu03.exe) passed;


      Environment Configuration:


      • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Domain;

      • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 DNS;

      • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 DHCP;


      Management Software:


      • Landesk Management Suite 8.8





      When I update the PC name in Windows and/or join the PC to the Domain, the corresponding fields (hostname/domain) in the vPro BIOS Section, don't update.



      We have older PCs (AMT 1.x) and, when I change the Computer Name in Windows, the corresponding field in the vPro BIOS Section change.



      Some explanations?
