    SMS 2003 Add-On + SMB Mode - Is remote management possible?


      Hi All.


      My environment:


      SMS 2003 SP3 + AMT Add-On (No SCS)

      Single test PC, HP DC7900 provisioned in SMB (Basic?) mode


      I have the SMS Add-On configured with the username and password set up on the test PC. I can web browse to the AMT page on the test PC and the credentials I configured work. Power management etc. works as expected.


      My question:


      When I try to examine the PC using the SMS console the only option available is to check if the PC is AMT enabled (which when I choose the option reports that the machine is enabled for AMT). Is this expected behaviour? Should I be able to inventory, reset etc with this set-up or do I need a full SCS installation and Enterprise type provisioning? I've spent some time browsing various PDFs but nothing I've read gives an explicit answer.


      Thanks in anticipation
