Intel Management and Security Status
The utility application enables users to view the status of a platform's support for Intel AMT and Standard
Manageability programs, and allows users to configure the Intel AMT and Standard Manageability in the
Microsoft Windows environment.
The application can be accessed from the system tray after you have downloaded and installed the Intel
Management Engine Interface a nd Serial Over LAN driver for Windows. The instructions for downloading
the driver are available on the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website
( http://www.hpe.com/support/ML10Gen9 -DriverSW ).
To set u p the Intel AMT, see Setting Up and Configuring Intel AMT and RAID volumes on the ProLiant
ML10 Gen9 Server on the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website
( http://www.hpe.com/support/ML10Gen9/docs ). For more information, see the Intel AMT website
(http://www.intel.com/technology/platform -technology/intel -amt ).
Intel AMT WebUI
Intel AMT has a built -in web interface that enables users to see detailed information on the CPU, memory,
and hard drives. The client system can be accessed from the local host and any other system on the
network that has a supported web browser after the Intel AMT is provisioned. It can also be used by the
management system to change settings on the client system including IP settings, host name, and editing
user accounts. The Event Log page of the Intel AMT WebUI displays the event log in which the events
happening on the client system are logged.
To acces s Intel AMT via the WebUI Interface, see the Intel AMT website
( http://www.intel.com/technology/platform -technology/intel -amt ).
Intel Rapid Storage Technology
Intel Rapid Storage Technology enables RAID array management in the Microsoft Windows environment.
The instructions for downloading the application are available on the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website

The UEFI-based BIOS from AMI provides reliability, manageability, and connectivity for server platforms.
It contains a set of programs permanently stored in an EEPROM chipset located on the system board.
The programs assist in managing, initializing, and testing the hardware devices installed on the computer.
The AMI BIOS serves three functions:

• Configures the system from the AMI BIOS Setup Utility
Using the Setup program, you can install, configure, and optimize the hardware devices on your
system such as memory or disk drives. In addition, you can enable various features such as PXE
• Initializes hardware at boot using POST routines
During power -on or warm reset, the AMI BIOS performs Power -On Self -Test (POST) routines to test
components, to allocate resource for various hardware devices, and to prepare the system to boot to
various operating systems.
• Perform run- time routines
During use, the AMI BIOS performs basic hardware routines that can be called from DOS and
Configuring the system BIOS using Setup Utility
AMI BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into the system's BIOS. Because most
systems are already configured and optimized for most environments, running this utility is usually not
required. However, you might need to run the AMI BIOS Setup Utility when changing specific system
configuration options including:
• Setting the system time and date
• Configuring the hard drives
• Specifying the boot device sequence
• Installing PCI expansion boards
• Upgrading the system BIOS
• Setting up system passwords or making other changes to the security setup
You must run this utility to change the BIOS settings from the default or current confi guration.
The AMI BIOS Setup Utility loads the configuration values in a region of BIOS flash called the NVRAM
region, which enables configuration data to be retained when power is turned off. The values take effect
when the system is booted. POST uses these values to configure the hardware. If the values and the
actual hardware do not agree, POST generates an error message.
To run the AMI BIOS Setup Utility:
1. Power on the monitor and the server.
If the server is already powered on, save your data and exit all open applications, and then restart
2. During POST, press DEL or ESC . The Main menu showing the AMI BIOS Setup Utility’s menu bar
appears. Use the left ( ←) and right ( →) arrow keys to move between selections on the menu bar.
If you do not pres s a hot key before POST is completed, restart the server.
