I am trying to set up Intel vPro using Intel SCS 8.0, in my Kace 5.4 appliance. However the instructions in this document applies to Intel SCS 7.0 and therefore the registery key are incorrect. I have tried to setup the custom inventory fields using "RegistryValueReturn" in the custom inventory rule and it does return or detect any keys at least in x64bit Windows 7 systems.

Has anyone had this issue and found a solution to it or any suggestions? Thanks

Hi emayers,

I was having the same problem too but managed to find the string values and successfully return them to the K1000 with the following regreturns.

Please note i have only tested this on windows8 so far.

RegistryValueReturn(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\Setup and Configuration Software\SystemDiscovery\ManageabilityInfo\ManagementSettings, AMTState, REG_SZ)

RegistryValueReturn(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\Setup and Configuration Software\SystemDiscovery\ManageabilityInfo, AMTVersion, REG_SZ)

Hope this helps

  • I am having the same issue with Windows 8.1. I have a ticket open with dell about this issue. check the reg location manually and see that the path is correct.

Hi emayers,

I am having trouble with my vPro config can you please tell me what your custom action is I have setup mine to this kvm://admin@KACE_HOST_IP but I still get an error.  Invalid URL. Please check the Machine Action and try again.

Hi CharlesG,

I was having the same issue too. The following custom action works for me.

Firstly find the install path for vncviewerplus then incorporate it into the custom action

So for example your custom action would be something like this on XP

"C:\Program Files\RealVNC\VNCViewerPlus\vncviewerplus.exe" KACE_HOST_IP

Save it. Then try again

  • Thanks for that did not think to actually put the whole file path in there. I have one more issue with the realvnc it is blocked by internet explorer security settings, did you have issues with IE and I see that you cannot access that action from Firefox.
  • Nevermind I have sorted the issue.

Hi

I have a difficulty understanding why the AMT settings does not want to take the configuration from the xml file that I push down to the machine and why would the realvnc connection time out ? What am I missing ? I have followed the setup guide to the letter fixed the realvnc action as seen above and I have made sure my Internet Explorer allows the vnc script, what else is there to do ?
