Description

The New-CMAmtProvisioningAccount cmdlet creates an account for AMT provisioning and discovery for the Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT)-based computers that Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager manages out of band.

The server that runs the out of band service point role uses this account to manage some network interface features of AMT in System Center Configuration Manager, by using the out of band management feature. The AMT Provisioning and Discovery Account that you specify in System Center Configuration Manager must match the AMT Remote Admin Account name and password of the BIOS extensions in the AMT-based computers.
