    Best option for our Vpro provisioning

      Hi,

       

       

      We are moving office and have a 500 brand new HP desktops with Vpro arriving in November. I would love to be able to have these machines pre-provisioned at factory level and then dropped off in the new office.

       

       

      I have an idea of how we could deploy the machines, but would love to know someone opinion, many thanks

       

       

      The proccess as I see it would be.

       

       

       

       

       

      Machines pre-provisioned in factory level with USB TLS-PSK keys, machines remain un-imaged. the machines are brought into the new office and plugged in, once attached to power they will start to send 'hello' messages which will be picked up by the SCS.

       

       

      SCS will provide the machines with a FQDN and place them into a profile. SMS 2003 will import this information and be able to populate itself with a list of asset numbers and then we can start using SMS to switch on the machines and push out an image to them using BDD.

       

       

      We would like to accomplish this without using certificates as our environment does not require that level of encryption.

       

       

      Many thanks
