In order for a SOL session to get established, it requires a system reset. SOL does not act like a KVM session.
Please note AMT Commander is End of Life tool, please download the new tool located at:
I understood that , sol options were available in BIOS. We need to set , reset the system for this setting to take effect.
From this Link, I understand the SOL operation
We shall set OemParametersType to 1 (UseSOL) in the remote boot parameter when remotely configuring client BIOS using Intel® AMT SOL. Only in this way can Intel® AMT BIOS boot in SOL mode and simultaneously export output data to the local display and SOL serial port, when both local and remote interfaces and operations are the same. Will SOL features be unavailable if we do not specify the parameter when we reboot the client? No. The only effect of booting without UseSOL parameter is that the BIOS output will not be exported to the SOL serial port.
This usesol setting is valid till next boot. But If i issue reset from webui(http://ipaddress:16992), AMT machine get resetted, but usesol setting is true(checked by enumerating AMTBootSettingData class). Is this expected behaviour. This usesol propert remains true even when we enter BIOS and change some values and exit
If I do power off from webui, usesol setting is reset back to false.
Yes, you are correct
