1st attempt of provisioning of a XP SP3 box has failed due to AMP. What can I do to resolve this? Any help appreciated. How do Provisioning log follows:

rfabian,

Amp is the protocol from client to server that works as queuing mechnism. It is outbound from the client to the K1 over port 52230. So, first thing to check is that when you set up your network settings, that you made changed the Web Server Host Name to something that is resolvable from the clients. The default is kbox and if you don't add kbox to DNS or change this value to either the IP address or a resolvable hostname, the agent will be provisioned to a non-resolvable address and you will see this behavior. If the hostname is valid, check c:\program files\kace\kbox\smmp.conf to make sure the hostname in the client config file is the same address as the network settings on the K1. If not, you can uninstall and reinstall the agent, or edit the SMMP.conf file and stop / start the KBOX agent config and you should be good.

Thanks 'chrisgrim.' Your answer pointed me 100% to the right configuration issue. Providing the correct 'KBOX Web Server Name' now allows AMP communications.
I have to say that the configuration instructions for setting up the K1000 trial vm seemed to indicate that the default name of 'KBOX' should not be changed. Since I did not understand the underlying function and requirements, I left the defaults.

I am experiencing the same issues with getting a test machine to provision. I have tried using device name, fqdn, and ipaddress and each gives the same results. Here is the results text:
