How to Identify Computers That Can Support Out of Band Management

Updated: October 1, 2009

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

To manage computers out of band in Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 and later, computers must have management controllers that are capable of supporting out of band management, and they must be provisioned for AMT by Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 or later.

When Configuration Manager has discovered computers with management controllers, identifying these computers allows you to monitor their provisioning status for AMT and initiate AMT provisioning if they have the client for Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 or later installed. For more information about discovering computers with management controllers, see How to Discover Computers with Management Controllers.

For more information about provisioning computers for AMT, see How to Provision Computers for AMT.

Use the following procedures to identify computers that can support out of band management by running a report, using the Configuration Manager console, or running a query. You must have a reporting point installed to run reports in Configuration Manager.

For more information about the AMT status values, see About the AMT Status and Out of Band Management.

The information in this topic applies only to Configuration Manager 2007 SP1 and later.

To identify computers that can support out of band management by running a report

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Reporting / Reports.

  2. In the Reports node, click the Category column to sort the reports so that you can more easily find the reports with the category of SMS Site - Client Information.

  3. Locate the report Computers with out of band management controllers, right-click it, and then click Run.

  4. In the Report Information window, enter or select a version number for AMT, and then click Display to view the report.

  5. View the value displayed for each computer in the column AMT Status.

To identify computers that can support out of band management by using the Configuration Manager console

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Collections.

  2. Click a collection, and view the columns in the results pane. If the AMT Status column is displayed, go to step 6. If the AMT Status column is not displayed, right-click the collection, click View, and then click Add/Remove columns.

  3. Under Available columns, click AMT Status, and then click Add.

  4. If you do not want the AMT status to be displayed last, ensure that AMT Status is selected, and then click Move Up until it is listed in the order you require.

  5. Click OK.

  6. View the value in the AMT Status column in the results pane to identify computers that can support AMT.

To identify computers that can support out of band management by running a query

  • Run one of the following queries:

    • To display computers that have a management controller that can be provisioned for AMT by Configuration Manager, run Select * from sms_r_system where AMTStatus=2

    • To display computers that have a management controller and have been successfully provisioned for AMT, run Select * from sms_r_system where AMTStatus=3
