Implement vPro machine with Kaseya when configured through Remote Configuration Service (RCS)

Problem

When trying to enable vPro to use in Kaseya, you get the following or similar error (in bold) on the vPro logs on vPro -> Administration -> vPro Logs page for the affected machine:

Solution

This implies that the machine has been configured using Remote Configuration Service (RCS). As such, it now needs to talk to the Remote Configuration Service (RCS), which is the Intel tool that gets installed when configuring a vPro Proxy with a certificate. The reason for this is either (a) it was configured with an RCS before or (b) it was configured manually, so only a RCS can override it.

 
As such, for this machine, you will not be able to activate it through Kaseya unless you buy a certificate from a certificate vendor and configure the vPro Proxy to use that. Otherwise, you will need to activate the machine manually, either by using Intel's USB-key activation or by manually going into the BIOS.
