Profile Creation, file only

Configuring Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) devices using this method requires the use of two utilities: ACUWizard.exe and ACUConfig.exe.

The first step is to create a profile with the ACUWizard and then push the profile to the client via the ACUConfig tool. The following is an example of a basic profile.  (Advanced profiles are beyond the scope of this article.) See Figures 1-3 for examples of what options are available in the ACUWizard’s GUI.

  1. Create the profile by opening the ACUWizard, and then selecting Create Settings to configure Multiple Systems. 
  2. In the AMT Configuration Utility: Profile Designer window, select the green plus sign New.

    Figure 1. Example of green plus sign.
  3. In the Configuration Profile Wizard, select Next.
  4. In the Configuration Profile Wizard Optional Settings window, select Next.
  5. In the Configuration Profile Wizard System Settings window:
    1. Enter the RFB password if it is being used.
    2. Enter the password in the Use the following password for all systems data field:
    3. Select the Set button for Edit and FQDN.
    4. There will be no changes, but note the changes required if a device has a static OS IP address.
    5. Select Cancel.
    6. Select Next.

  6. In the Configuration Profile Wizard - "Finished" window:
    1. Enter the Profile Name you want to use.
    2. Encrypt the XML file by adding and confirming the password.
    3. Select Finish.

  7. In the Intel AMT Configuration Utility: Profile Designer window:
    1. Take note of the Profile Path shown on your screen. It should be something like <userName>\documents\SCS_Profile.
    2. Close ACUWizard.
