Intel ME WMI Provider missing

2020-08-03, 10:43 AM

Hello,

 

on newer systems like the T490 the Intel ME WMI Provider is missing in "Intel Management Engine 14.0 Software" (Link). On older Systems T470p, T460p, T440p it is installed and the Softwarepackage also is much larger (over 100mb vs. 18mb).

 

Because of missing the WMI Provider, there is no WMI-Class "Intel_ME", so there are no possibilities to check ME status/firmware etc. in Microsoft SCCM (MEM).

 

If i install the full setup e.g. from station-drivers/dell/msi the wmi provider is present.

 

Question 1: Why Lenovo, why? Why is the Intel Management Engine 14.0 Software stripped down?

Question 2: Are there any solutions for this problem? Except dealing with unsupported Software from other OEMs than Lenovo.

 

Thank you,

 

Best Regards

We recently moved to an INF-only driver package to meet some Microsoft requirements, the full setup is not available in this package because there is no way to install it from INF.  However, we do understand why you need it.  We are discussing how to provide the SetupME.exe that you need.  Sorry for this trouble.

Here is the installer that I think you are looking for.  Can you please check it and let me know?

Hi,

 

the installer is working fine and the required WMI Classes are present. Thank you.

 

Can we expect this package (and future versions) to be generally available via tvsu/update retriever?

 

Best Regards.

I have made the request to get this into System Update somehow, but I don't think it is something we can do in the short-term.

Okay,

 

can we use the package you provided us in the meantime or is it not official from lenovo and we might get no support in case of an issue?

 

Thank you,

 

Best Regards
