You can provision a Dell iDRAC or HP iLO machine by booting from an ISO image and using a kickstart or autoYaSt configuration file and a Linux distribution image to install the operating system on the machine.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as a tenant administrator or business group manager.

Gather the name and location of the ISO image from your fabric administrator. For Dell iDRAC integrations where the image is located on a CIFS share that requires authentication, you also need the user name and password to access the share.

Note

Your fabric administrator might have provided this information in a build profile.

1

Blueprint information settings control who can access a blueprint and how many machines they can provision with it.

2

The build information settings determine how a machine is provisioned.

3

Machine resource settings control the resources consumed by a machine provisioned with your blueprint.

4

Linux Kickstart provisioning requires custom properties to locate the boot ISO image.

5

Use blueprint actions and entitlements together to maintain detailed control over provisioned machines.
