Configuring the automatic Intel AMT configuration profile assignment
The Resource Synchronization policy let you automatically map a configuration profile to Intel AMT computers in an unconfigured state.
For the automatic mapping to work, you must let Out of Band Management Component detect the FQDN of the Intel AMT device.
You can do this in the following ways:
If you want to configure a managed Intel AMT computer with the Symantec Management Agent installed, let the Symantec Management Agent register with Notification Server and send basic inventory.
Basic inventory includes the UUID of the Intel AMT device and the FQDN that is used by the operating system. Out of Band Management Component assigns this FQDN to the Intel AMT device at the time of setup and configuration.
If you want to configure unmanaged computers, you can check Use DNS IP resolution to find FQDN when assigning profiles on the Resource Synchronization page.
In this case, Out of Band Management Component performs a DNS lookup and assigns the Intel AMT device a DNS name, rather than the FQDN that is stored in the database.
To use this option you must have a properly configured network infrastructure where dynamic IP addresses are properly resolved to DNS names. Otherwise, an incorrect FQDN can be assigned to the Intel AMT device and the device will not be accessible.
In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click All Settings.
In the left pane, click Remote Management > Out of Band Management > Intel AMT Computers > Resource Synchronization.
Under Profile assignment settings, add a profile to assign to all Intel AMT computers that request configuration.
You can add more than one profile, for example, if you want to assign different profiles to computers from different domains.
If you want to assign an FQDN to an Intel AMT computer that does not have the Symantec Management Agent installed and whose FQDN is not known to Notification Server , check Use DNS IP resolution to find FQDN when assigning profiles.
Turn on the policy and click Save changes.
