A script to perform a Discover AMT status task remotely for SCCM 2012

Hi Everyone,

Have you every needed to Discover the AMT status of a SCCM client remotely. 

Basically I am provisioning my SCCM 2012 clients with SCS 8.1. When you provision the systems with SCS 8.1 they will show up in SCCM 2012 as externally provisioned

Once the systems are provisioned with SCS you need to manually run a Discover AMT Status on the collection or resource, only then will they show up as externally provisioned. I was looking for a method to automate this process when I came across this article.

Unfortunately this only works with SCCM 2007. Daniel from Intel, who wrote this script pointed out that SCCM 2012 requires two other parameters. It can be found in the following MSDN.

I have modified the script to work with SCCM 2012. It has to be run from the client and requires an extra parameter, the collection ID.

You can call it like this. 

cscript sccmamtmgnt.vbs /s:<SiteServer> /c:<SiteCode> /a:discover /h:%computername% /D:<CollectionID>

I just used the All Systems collection ID

' I have updated the script for SCCM 2012. Please refer to the following Microsoft Website
' SCCM 2012 requires two extra variables. CollectionID and extData. exData can be set to 0
' I am running this from the client. It doesn't pick up the right Resource ID from the SCCM site server

Option Explicit

'Create some variables
'Blair Muller. Updated to include variable CollectionID
dim objItem, objService, objNetwork, userName, userPassword, strHostName, amtAction, amtActionDesc, amtOpCode, server,CollectionID, colNamedArguments, objLocation, WbemServices, sResourceID(2), colMember, colMembers, sitecode

wscript.echo "SCCM AMT Management Script 1.0"

You can see the results in the amtopmgr.log file located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs

You can also see the action in the status Message Viewer

Hope this helps.

    say that this write-up very pressured me to check out and
    do so! Your writing style has been surprised me.
