What are the vPro Configuration Requirements?
VPro Configuration Requirements
§ The agent cannot be on the vPro machine. It has to be on a different machine in the same LAN.
§ The VPro machine being booted must be VPro 3.0 or greater.
§ SOL/IDE-R must be enabled in the Intel AMT BIOS extension. This cannot be done remotely.
§ The agent machine used to boot the vPro machine, the VPro machines being booted and the UNC must all be on the same LAN.
§ Only UNC shares can be specified. Mapped drives are not allowed.
§ Credentials must be defined in advance, providing access to:
o The agent machine
o The UNC share on the LAN.
o The vPro machine - vPro credentials are configured either during LAN Watch scan or by clicking on the credentials icon in the grid. The network credentials are gathered along with the UNC when the ISO boot icon is clicked in the grid.
ISO boot is implemented via the following components:
§ VProProxy.dll - This dll is used by the agent on the agent machine to communicate with the VPro machine.
§ Redirect.exe - This process is run with the passed in network credentials and manages the virtual drive.

§ -redirect - We're going to do a redirect operation. Possible values - command
