Using Windows Registry scripts to setup Intel EMA server configurations for the Rescue Technician Console
Intel EMA Server Configuration settings are saved to the user-specific registry tree. Rescue Administrators can edit Intel EMA server configurations from the Rescue Technician Console UI under. This article explains in detail how the information is stored in the registry, and how IT admins can import/export, as well as update the Intel EMA Server Configurations without using the Technician Console UI.
Option 1: Exporting and importing existing configurations via registry scripts
reg export HKCU\Software\LogMeInRescue\TechConsole\AMT\Servers\Intel EMA Intel EMA_settings.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\LogMeInRescue\TechConsole\AMT\Servers\Intel EMA] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\LogMeInRescue\TechConsole\AMT\Servers\Intel EMA\3C574228-C3AD-4AAF-812E-0992C732D089] "server"="https://Intel EMA-1.my-domain.com" "user"=hex:01, 02, 03, ... "pass"=hex:01, 02, 03, ... "name"="Intel EMA Server 1" "authMethod"="localUser" [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\LogMeInRescue\TechConsole\AMT\Servers\Intel EMA\4AB67B70-77F8-4D8C-BA4E-192C9B2D4203] "user"=hex:01, 02, 03, ... "pass"=hex:01, 02, 03, ... "server"="https://Intel EMA-2.my-domain.com" "name"="Intel EMA Server 2" "authMethod"="activeDirectory"
The registry script file contains the user names and passwords (keys “user” and “pass”) for the Rescue application. These credentials are encrypted and tied to the local user account, so they cannot be used by other accounts on the same or different machines. Therefore, if the registry script file is imported from a different user account, the credentials will need to be re-entered manually in the Rescue application. For large-scale deployments, we suggest deleting the “user” and “pass” lines from the registry script file before importing it.
reg import Intel EMA_settings.reg
Option 2: Creating registry script configuration files manually
You can create registry scripts with Intel EMA server configurations as simple text files, without using the Rescue Technician console. To do this, you need to remember the following:
- Give the file a “.reg” extension (this allows you to import it by double-clicking it).
- Start the file with the string “Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00”.
- Choose a unique identifier for each Intel EMA server configuration and store it at “[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\LogMeInRescue\TechConsole\AMT\Servers\Intel EMA<unique identifier>]”. The identifier should be in UUID format. You can use one of these generators:
- MacOS, Linux: uuidgen
- Windows in a Powershell: [guid]::NewGuid()
- Online: GUID Generator
- Fill in the mandatory fields for each configuration:
- “name”: a human-readable identifier for the Intel EMA server without any formatting characters.
- “server”: the Intel EMA server root URL
- “authMethod”: either “localUser” or “activeDirectory”.
- Do not include the “user” and “pass” fields, as they need to be encrypted for the current user. Rescue TC will prompt you for credentials when you use them for the first time.
