Intel vPro, not able to connect to WebUI

When configuring the integration with ConfigMgr (SCCM) and Intel vPro. I was trying to deploy Intel vPro WebUI, I kept receiving an error when trying to log in. It was like the authentication wasn’t happening on the backend. Did anyone say logs? Nope, no sir, no logs. Just the error message. I posted the question on the Intel forums and received the answer. It’s a registry issue and it’s not Intel’s issue. Come to find out Microsoft has a KB article from the XP days still about this. Hhhmmmm, very interesting.

Intel forum where the answer is:

Here’s how to fix it and the KB article.

After you install the hotfix, you must add the FEATURE_INCLUDE_PORT_IN_SPN_KB908209 registry key, and then set its DWORD value to iexplore.exe. To do this, follow these steps.

For 32-bit computers

  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. In the left pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl

  1. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Key.
  2. Type FEATURE_INCLUDE_PORT_IN_SPN_KB908209, and then press ENTER.
  3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
  4. Type iexplore.exe, and then press ENTER.
  5. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
  6. Type 1 in the Value data box, and then click OK.
  7. Exit Registry Editor.

For 64-bit computers

  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. In the left pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:

Note: If this doesn’t work, check how deep the user is in side the groups you added to the ConfigMgr OOB Component configuration. I made sure to keep the user at 1 level deep.
