Dell Client Manager and Intel vPro configuration

In recent weeks, I’ve received a number of questions about Dell Client Manager 3.0 ability to configure Intel vPro technology.

I have not had the opportunity to review the latest official documentation from Symantec\Altiris or Dell on how to configure Intel vPro technology.Therefore, this blog provides my perspective and approach.I ask for your patience and understanding.A few key points to keep in mind.Dell Client Management version 3 is based on Altiris 7A video posted at http://vproexpert.blip.tv/file/1900890/ – about 5 minutes into that video the focus is on configuringMuch of the Altiris\vPro configuration requirement for Altiris v7 are very similar to v6.For an Altiris v6 vPro configuration baseline, see material posted about 2 years ago – http://www.symantec.com/connect/videos/video-workshop-intel-vpro-activationIf you are totally new to Intel vPro technology, I invite you to first learn what the technology is capable of doing.http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/combining-band-and-out-band-managementSo – you’ve started to deploy Intel vPro systems from Dell and are using their Dell client manager.Altiris 7 requires SCS 5.x to configure vPro. On the Dell Client Manager, check to see if the following fileshare exists Two key challenges I As to what configuration script will be used, this setting is made in the IntelAMT database.http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/download-the-latest-version-of-intel-amt-setup-and-configuration-service-scs/… The other good item here is the updated version of SCS 5.xSo that’s the brief summary.As stated previously – my intent was not to provide a complete answer, yet to provide a brief insight and references.Interested to hear from the community.
