I'm familiar with Powershell sessions (ie Enter-PSSession) and what they can be used for. I'm attempting to remotely manage power through vPro, so I've been messing around with the IntelvPro module in Powershell. Up until now, whenever I run a command like

Invoke-AMTPowerManagement -operation PowerOff

...it returns:

ComputerName        Port      Operation      Status
------------        ----      ---------      ------      16992     PowerOff       Failed

Basically, everything I try to do which deals with AMT fails. However, I recently realized that I could successfully enter AMT sessions with remote machines through the commands

$connection = New-AMTConnection
Enter-AMTSession $connection

This is all well and good, but now that I'm connected to the remote machine, I'm not sure what I can do. Ultimately I would like to remotely manage power (more specifically, reboot), and feed text to the computer via the SOL channel.

    After the fail do $error[0] and see the reason. Usually it's permissions related but not always. – Brian Feb 8 '14 at 3:08
  • Did $error[0] give you any information? – Tanner Faulkner Feb 11 '14 at 17:26
  • I won't be able to test this until Wednesday night. I'll let you know. – Brian Gradin Feb 11 '14 at 21:41
  • Here's a screenshot of the error dump – Brian Gradin Feb 13 '14 at 1:58
  • Note, though, that the error only happens when I use Invoke-AMTPowerManagement. The posted question was asking about the AMT sessions, which are different, although related. – Brian Gradin Feb 13 '14 at 2:00
