Does anyone have a guide to scanning the network for machines with vPro enabled? We covered this at Konference this year, but unfortunately we went through so fast, I have no idea how to do it.

I'm also trying to enable vPro remote KVM on an Optiplex 990 Core i7 desktop next to me, and I configure MEBX and AMT settings appropriately from what I can tell - but when running the ACU Wizard in windows, as soon as I launch it, I get a "Cannot configure Intel AMT - call to function failed with return code". Does that mean that vPro is not enabled on this machine?

The bottom of pg 9 walks you through a detection script. http://partnerdirect.dell.com/sites/channel/en-us/documents/dell_kace_remote_management_intel_vpro_technology.pdf

      • Thanks for that. I have some non vPro machines and was wondering what I am to look for in my CIR to show it is not vPro capable?
      • Netpar, Use http://www.kace.com/~/media/Files/Partners/dell-kace-remote-systems-management-w-intel-vpro-technology.pdf
        on PG10. But I warn you they are VERY behine on the instructions and nothing matches up anymore. I wish they would re-write the doc so it works. You will find that after step 6 the instructions are incorrect until step 14. BTW step 14 is the last step.

Just a heads up the Intel vPro KVM needs to use the onboard intel video card to work (so no ATI or Nvidia cards).
