You must prepare a reference machine and convert it to a template for cloning before you can add software installation by HP Server Automation to provisioning by cloning.

1

Add the HP Server Automation agent installation package to the cloning template.

2

Copy the HP Server Automation agent installer to the C:\ directory of the reference machine.

3

Add the customization required to invoke the agent after provisioning, by adding following line to the Run Once section of the customization specification.

C:\opswareagentinstaller --opsw_gw_addr opswareipaddress:3001 -s --force_sw_reg 
--force_full_hw_reg

This customization also installs the agent on each cloned machine.

4

Replace opswareagentinstaller with the name of the HP Server Automation agent installer executable.

5

Replace opswareipaddress with the IP address of the server that is hosting the HP Server Automation instance that installs the software.

For example:

C:\ opsware-agent-37.0.0.2.61-win32-6.0.exe --opsw_gw_addr 10.20.100.52:3001 -s --force_sw_reg --force_full_hw_reg

Optionally, identify the HP Server Automation policies to make available in vCloud Automation Center. See Enable vCloud Automation Center Software Installation from HP Server Automation.

Create a blueprint for the type of HP Server Automation integration you want to enable. See Creating Blueprints for HP Server Automation.
