Helping out a small nonprofit with a piece o' crap Lenovo Thinkserver TS130.  Oy vey.  I see vague references scattered around the internet to an "Easymanage" which sounds like it might be analogous to Dell's openmanage - so that I could tweak a bios setting remotely...

All the references however seem to be about how the damn download link is broken and has been forever.  I can't find any links to it whatsoever on Lenovo's godawful website.

Anyone work with Lenovo and know how to getterdone?

thanks!

Is that the site that's giving you a hard time?  The downloads seemed to work when I tried them.

The problem is there is no easymanager at your link (which I had already looked at and used to do other things like update the bios firmware, etc).

I think I figured out that this box has AMT so I'll see about enabling that when I'm onsite today.  From everything I've read there's no way to get this particular configuration set up remotely for bios tweaks.  It doesn't accept the wmi calls the laptops and desktops do, and the MEBX has to be accessed physically the first time in order to set up unsolicited control via AMT.
