Challenges facing today’s IT Inconsistent quality Inefficient Management of IT IT slow to respond of downtime is caused by manual and disconnected IT processes 75% Source: The causes & costs of data center system downtime – Advisory Board Q&A of business users consider IT to be distributed, agile, and flexible 30% Source: InformationWeek survey of IT perception Only Up to Source: Forrester Research, Inc., Forrsights Budgets & Priorities Tracker Survey of time is spent maintaining existing IT environments 70% Nearly
  4. 4. A typical day in the office, the boss says “Deploy 100’s of new servers – STAT!” • Racks of new servers arrive on your shipping dock and the clock is ticking… • How quickly can these servers be online and ready for critical workloads? • Are current processes and command scripts limiting your agility? • Can you reliably and repeatably deploy these servers?
  5. 5. Yes, you can do it with PowerEdge Zero Touch Auto Configuration • Deploy servers within minutes using Zero Touch Auto Configuration • Works in YOUR environment - utilizes PowerEdge iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller and your existing DHCP server and file share infrastructure • Configures to YOUR specifications – build configuration templates from golden configurations and reliably deploy • Flexible to YOUR needs – configure based on server service tag, by server model Eliminate 213 steps for bare metal configuration Zero Touch Auto Configuration Eliminate time consuming manual configuration steps along with possible errors

  7. 7. PowerEdge Embedded Configuration Management Easy Restore – simplifies motherboard replacement Server Profile – backup and restore identity, firmware, configuration, and licenses Zero Touch Auto Configuration – automate and standardize server configuration SCP Part Replacement – update firmware and configure new NICs, storage controllers, and PSUs
  8. 8. Auto Config Workflow SVCTAG1 SVCTAG2 SVCTAG3 SVCTAG4 1. iDRAC sends DHCP request to the DHCP server Remote Share SVCTAG1.XML SVCTAG2.XML SVCTAG3.XML SVCTAG4.XML<Model>.XML 2. DHCP server responds with the IP address and option fields 3. iDRAC examines the option fields and retrieves the Server Configuration Profile from the Remote Share. 4. iDRAC applies the Server Configuration Profile to the server. Based on the required changes, the server may reboot. DHCP Server Option Fields Optionally, iDRAC can dynamically generate the SCP filename based upon server service tag, server model, or a fixed filename
  9. 9. Auto Configuration Demo
  10. 10. Using Server Configuration Profiles Deploy and configure “golden server” New server configured using DHCP Auto Config Export the “golden server” SCP XML file New server operational with compliant config Edit SCP XML for incoming server models <SystemConfiguration Model="PowerEdge R630" ServiceTag="HPGBDV1" TimeStamp="Fri Jun 6 10:12:55 2015"> <Component FQDD="RAID.Slot.2-1"> <Component FQDD="Disk.Virtual.0:RAID.Slot.2-1"> <Attribute Name="IncludedPhysicalDiskID">Disk.Bay.0:Enclos ure.External.0-0:RAID.Slot.2-1</Attribute> Setup DHCP server for Auto Config DHCP SCP SCP SCP √
  11. 11. At-the-server configuration with iDRAC Direct • Perform 13G server configuration on a single server using a USB key-based Server Configuration Profile • Enables single server configuration via SCP without need for networking connection, DHCP server or file server • Use cases – Server-at-a-time acceptance testing – Test and development environments – Support technicians at remote locations Server Configuration Profile XML

  14. 14. Thanks for attending!
  15. 15. Server Configuration Profile (SCP) • Server Configuration Profile (SCP) is an XML-based file that is used to specify configuration parameters for PowerEdge server components • SCPs are a powerful replacement for the current practice of attribute-at-a-time configuration via Racadm and WS-MAN – one command / API call to import a file vs. dozens of individual operations to configure a server • SCPs typically created by establishing a server “golden config” then exporting an SCP file via the iDRAC GUI, Racadm command or WS-MAN operation • SCP management methods • Create and maintain SCP “golden configs” • OME Configuration Manager • SCP usage • Racadm and WS-MAN based import operations to configure new or updated servers • iDRAC Auto Config for network-based server configuration • iDRAC Direct USB key for at-the-server configuration • Future plans: SCP support for firmware: enable deployment of repository-based firmware updates as part of configuration
