Detailed Description

With the release of Intel® vPro™ technology, companies have adopted the practice of using a third-party management console to manage their machines that have Intel vPro technology. To help customers get started with using their third-party consoles with Intel vPro technology, these Use Case Reference Designs provide information on performing the basic functions of creating a package, turning the remotely managed system on, deploying the package, and then rebooting the remotely managed system.

The first Use Case Reference Design (file 1062a_v12.zip) provides instructions on using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager* (ConfigMgr) to wake, patch, and reboot a remotely managed Intel vPro technology based system by doing the following:

 - create an update package in ConfigMgr
 - turn on the remotely managed system
 - push the update package to the remotely managed system
 - reboot the remotely managed system

This process assumes the remotely managed system is already set up and configured for use with ConfigMgr.

The second Use Case Reference Design (file 1062b_v12.zip) provides instructions on using Altiris to wake, patch, and reboot a remotely managed Intel vPro technology based system by doing the following:

 - create an update package in Altiris
 - turn on the remotely managed system
 - push the update package to the remotely managed system
 - reboot the remotely managed system

The third Use Case Reference Design (1062c_v11.zip) provides instructions on using LANDesk* 8.8 SP4 to wake, patch, and reboot a remotely managed Intel vPro technology based system by doing the following:

 - create an update package in LANDesk 8.8 SP4
 - turn on the remotely managed system
 - push the update package to the remotely managed system
 - reboot the remotely managed system

This process assumes the remotely managed system is already set up and configured for use with LANDesk 8.8 SP4.
