Hello all, I have a long standing issue with one of my home servers (which are basically just plain desktop computers). Here is the description of my home environment:
Server 1 - problematic
- Gigabyte GA-Q67M-D2H-B3 board with Q67 chipset [link]
- Intel Core i5-2400 which supports vPro [link]
- Newest BIOS from Gigabyte F7
- AMT version 18.104.22.1685
Server 2 - OK
- Asus P8Q77-M2 board with Q77 chipset [link]
- Intel Core i5-3470 which supports vPro [link]
- Newest BIOS from Asus 0506
- AMT version 22.214.171.1245
Both servers are properly configured (I guess). I can connect to both using Intel Manageability Commander Tool, I can also view the vPro built-in web page and they respond to ping properly. Both are on the same network in one subnet (192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0).
When I connect remotely to Server 1, I can't use my keyboard and mouse over KVM. I receive the screen and it is live - meaning when I do something on the keyboard connected locally, I can see it in my VNC viewer. However the computer or AMT does not receive my keyboard keystrokes and mouse moves.
When I connect to Server 2, everything works correctly, so it should not be a software problem on my side (i.e. a wrong version of VNC). I tried to use numerous applications and all of them exhibit this problem, so it must be something with Server 1.
I found a topic somewhere [link] which states that I should enable Legacy USB in BIOS. I have this enabled already and it did not help in my case.
Question 1: How to resolve this problem?
Question 2: Is it possible to update my version of ME 126.96.36.1995 to a newer one? Gigabyte doesn't have a newer BIOS which also includes ME firmware, but I know there is already version 188.8.131.526. Is it possible to download the binary file somewhere and flash it without Windows (like from a bootable USB)?
