Intel vPro – Configuration – Part 6 – Basic SCS Profile

vPro Series of Posts


Let’s create the most basic of SCS profiles and work from there. This will let us test out the provisioning process and the vPro \ AMT features like KVM. After that works, we’ll move on to more advanced profiles that make use of Kerberos and TLS.

Procedure:

  1. Open SCS Console and choose the ‘Profiles’ button on the top-left of the screen, then click ‘New Profile’.
  2. On the ‘Getting Started’ screen, enter ‘rconfig-basic’ for the name, select ‘Configuration\Reconfiguration’, then click ‘Next’.
  3. On the ‘Optional Settings’ screen, check the box labeled ‘Access Control List (ACL)’, then click ‘Next’.
  4. On the ‘Access Control List’ screen, click ‘Add’, and add a digest user named ‘AMTdigest’.
  5. On the ‘User/Group Details’ screen, switch the “Access Type” to “Both”, and check all checkboxes except “Access Monitor’. Then, click OK to save.
  6. On the ‘System Settings’ screen, enter the MEBx password that you want to use for the target AMT systems. It needs to match whatever you manually set the MEBx password to on the target system. We will go over manually setting the MEBx password in later posts. For now, choose a password.
  7. Still on the ‘System Settings’ screen, enter the same password in the box labeled ‘Use the following password for all systems:’.
  8. Click the ‘set’ button next to the label ‘Edit IP and settings’.
  9. On the ‘Network Settings’ screen, choose ‘Use the following as the FQDN’ and select ‘Primary DNS FQDN’ from the drop-down box.
  10. Under the IP frame, choose ‘Get the IP from the DHCP server’.
  11. Under the ‘DNS’ frame, choose ‘Update the DNS directly’.
  12. On the ‘Finish’ screen, click ‘Finish’.

Nice and easy. Next step, actually provisioning a system.
