    Trying to configure Remote configuration, almost there...

    JHolmes

      I have successfully provisioned a test machine (Dell OptiPlex 990, AMTv7.1) by entering the MEBX and choosing the option "Activate Network Access". I cannot seem to provision this machine with either acuconfig or the activator utility, without first manually choosing this option. Otherwise, I get errors in the logs regarding PKI certificates not being valid or connections to AMT not working.

       

      I have a 2008R2 server with SCS 8.1 and a GoDaddy vPro cert installed. DNS is setup with provisionserver pointing to the IP of this server. The SOL driver and LMS service is installed on the target machine. The command line to configure (which works when the "Activate Network Access" option is selected in MEBX) is as follows:

       

      C:\COnfigurator\acuconfig.exe /verbose ConfigViaRCSOnly scsserver.domain.net "Company Test Profile" /abortonfailure /adminpassword xxxxxxx

       

      It seems that I am having trouble reopening the interface and entering setup mode? I thought the activator utility would help with this, but this also returns errors when run:

      I have restarted the target machine after running the activator, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Feel like Im close to fixing this, but at a dead end?
