Setup and configuration (sometimes referred to as provisioning) is a process of data exchange between the Intel AMT device and the configuration server. At the end of the setup and configuration process the Intel AMT computer is ready for out-of-band management.
The setup and configuration process starts right after you initialize the Intel AMT computer.
Based on the UUID that is located in the Hello message, Out of Band Management Component searches the Intel SCS database for the configuration profile and the host name that you assigned to this Intel AMT device.
If you use TLS to secure communications, Intel SCS requests a certificate for Intel AMT from a Microsoft certification authority (CA) server.
If you enabled integration with Active Directory, Intel SCS defines the device as an AMT object in the Microsoft Active Directory domain controller.
The Intel SCS service completes configuration using SOAP commands.
After setup and configuration, the computer is ready for out-of-band management with Altiris solutions.
