During the webinar we received a # of great questions, I took these from the queue and here are the answers:
When can we expect to see some real tools & documentation on remote OS & application diagnosis & repair?
A: Tools – Check here. http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-1171
A: As for documentation of OS fixes, we leverage items like BSOD Analyzer to check the minidump file to validate the the driver in error. I highly recommend checking this tool on Microsoft&aposs website.
Example: Is there any way to access a remote command prompt in Windows through SoL? What sort of lightweight diagnostic boot images are available that will enable remote diagnosis / repair?
A: There is, you can boot to a light weight image i.e. windowsPE.
A: Here are a few options:
Spare Tire ISO – http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-1733 – the how to build guide
Another great thread on ISO&aposs – http://communities.intel.com/message/2508#2508
Can I copy files to a remote workstation, through vPro, to a broken Windows workstation, to repair it? If so, where is the documentation on how to do this?
A: Sparetire ISO can do this very thing, then you can boot into windows (light version) & then utilize your normal tools to fix it. i.e. VNC, etc.. Check out the spare tire ISO post above.
Great webinar today, great questions. Keep them coming..
