Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DART) Remote Connection Tool

Just a few weeks ago Microsoft released a public Beta version of the Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DART) 7. One of the new features of DART7 is the Remote Connection Tool. Okay, I agree this is not rocked science, actually I’ve written about this before using a VNC client, but now that it is included within the tool suite, it’s just there and ready to use. Let’s have a look how this works. On the Read More …

Intel KVM Remote Control and VNC Viewer Plus

Back in December 2009 I posted Remote Management of AMT/vPro machine with WinPE and VNC which explained how to use VNC running in WinPE to remotely manage a vPro enabled device. For those that did try this themselves will have noticed that the process isn’t as comfortable as we would like it to be for day to day use.

I write most of my blog posts at home in the evenings. Usually when I find a new tool I install these first within a virtual machine, this to not mess our family PC or my laptop I use for work. All Virtual Machines run on a HP dc7800 desktop which has Intel vPro support. This PC is installed down in the cellar. To avoid having to go down there to power on  the PC Read More …

Intel AMT in action

For those of you who do have vPro capable machines in their environment, but never had the chance to take a closer look at the AMT features, this blog post might be of interest. For most people I assume the biggest hurdle to start using the AMT technology is that you need a System Management Infrastructure setup that provides AMT support like Microsoft SCCM, Altiris Client Management Suite, Intel Landesk or the HP System Configuration Read More …
