Intel® AMT Desktop Management Pack for SCOM 2007 and SCE 2007

4:53 pm in Uncategorized by

 

This is so  cool!  Watch the demo!

The Intel® AMT management pack is not
just for monitoring the desktops, the additional tasks in the OpsMgr 2007
console make it possible to change BIOS setting, select boot images for remote
system startup and apply security policies. Watch the
Intel AMT Management Pack Demo to get an insight on the management
pack features.  

Overview

Intel® Active Management Technology
(Intel® AMT) Management Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager and
System Center Essentials is now available. This management pack enables the
users of these applications to take advantage of the advanced, hardware-based
system management capabilities of Intel® AMT, which are built into PCs with Intel®
VPro™ processor technology. These capabilities will help reduce the cost of
discovering, managing and securing desktop and mobile PCs in the enterprise and
thereby improving compliance with corporate policies. Information Technology
(IT) support staff can now rapidly and remotely communicate with, power up,
reboot, control, inventory assets, and remediate desktop PCs with Intel® VPro™
processor technology even if the PC is powered off or the operating system is
not functioning. Support staff are able to manage PCs more effectively from the
IT support center which leads to a reduction in desk-side visits and hence the
total cost of ownership of computing systems equipped with Intel® VPro™
processor technology.

Features of the Management pack

• Installation including console-only
install
• Intel® AMT Management Pack works with both Microsoft* Ops Mgr and Essentials
• Discovery of Intel® AMT systems within a given IP range
• Support of WS-MAN protocol for contacting systems where applicable
• Power control operations

installation files and documentation.
