Which kind of error to you get when you try configure in SMB and save the settings?
When I've seen this after a BIOS upgrade, I've been able to correct it by clearing the CMOS with the CMOS clear jumper or by unplugging and removing the CMOS battery. Give that a try and let me know.
I haven't had an exact error. It just didn't preserved the settings i gave for provisioning. It seems to reset itselft on bios exit.
But i found a solution. I formated a USB Flash Drive using the AMT configuration utility which changed my password and the system accepted my settings. All is ok now. Thanks for your prompt reply.
My problems with this particular actual board are comming back from the dead....
I cannot log in to ME settings in Bios. The password i supply to the system is invalid. But when I use the Intel System Defence Utility 2.0.6 from another system i can add the DQ45CB AMT Computer within the utility and i can connect from within the Utility to it using the same password i am supplying under Bios.
What do you believe would be the explanation of this strange phenomenon...?
This behavior is not strange, you can have different passwords, to local and remote.
If you can't remember MBEx password (local access by Ctrl+P), the easiest way for a single machine would be: you can remotely reprovision this machine and change MBEx password or full unprovision, disabling the AMT feature in BIOS, rebooting and enabling it again. After these steps, you will see that AMT will come back as factory default configuration and MBEx password will be "admin" as default.
My two cents!
