About the AMT Status and Out of Band Management in Configuration Manager

Updated: December 1, 2011

Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

The AMT status is used with out of band management in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to identify the capability and provisioning status of the management controller on Intel AMT-based computers. This status is displayed in the Configuration Manager console, in the report Computers with out of band management controllers, and can also be used to construct queries.

Use the following table for more details about the AMT status and the corresponding queries.

 

AMT status Description Query

Unknown

The AMT status is not yet known. This occurs when the AMT-based computer has not contacted the out of band service point site system server to be provisioned, or when you have not run Discover AMT Status for the collection.

Select * from sms_r_system where AMTStatus is null

Not Supported

The computer does not have AMT capability and cannot support out of band management.

Select * from sms_r_system where AMTStatus=0

Detected

AMT capability is detected on this computer, but the out of band service point is unable to provision it for AMT. This scenario can occur when the computer has been previously provisioned for AMT outside the Configuration Manager site and the password for the AMT Remote Admin Account or the MEBx Account has been changed and is unknown.

Before Configuration Manager can provision and manage this computer, you must remove the provisioning information, and then run the Discover AMT Status action.

TipTip
You might be able to remove the AMT provisioning information by using Configuration Manager and the AMT Provisioning Removal Account, if this account is configured in the Out of Band Management Component Properties dialog box. Or, manually remove the AMT provisioning information. For more information about removing the AMT provisioning information by using Configuration Manager and the AMT Provisioning Removal Account, see How to Remove AMT Information.

Select * from sms_r_system where AMTStatus=1

Not Provisioned

AMT capability is detected on this computer, and it can be provisioned for AMT by the out of band service point.

Select * from sms_r_system where AMTStatus=2

Provisioned

AMT capability is detected on this computer, and it can be managed out of band by Configuration Manager.

Select * from sms_r_system where AMTStatus=3

Externally Provisioned

AMT capability is detected on this computer, and it has been provisioned outside Configuration Manager by using AMT Host Based Provisioning. The computer account of the out of band service point lets Configuration Manager manage this computer out of band. However, Configuration Manager cannot update the management controller, remove the provisioning information, or reprovision this computer.

Select * from sms_r_system where AMTStatus=4

The AMT status is determined when the AMT discovery process runs, which uses the following accounts in the order specified:

  1. The AMT Remote Admin Account

  2. The computer account of the out of band service point

  3. The AMT Provisioning and Discovery Account

The AMT status is automatically updated when Configuration Manager provisions a computer for AMT or removes provisioning information.
