  15. 15. • Install & configure multiple components: PowerCLI snap-in, AutoDeploy, PXE/TFTP and DHCP• Find the right image and drivers online• Use PowerShell command-line with PowerCLI to:• Create and test an ESXi image profile with the correct drivers• Create an Auto Deploy rule to map host profile & image profile• Deploy the ESXi image to a host vCenteradministratorToo much time!!Host Deployment (without UCP Director)
  16. 16. Configuring End-to-End Converged Stack (with UCP Director)1. Select the server that you want to deploy2. Click Deploy Images Done! Deploy image to a hostConfigure Host Configure Storage Configure Network

  21. 21. UCP SOLUTION – EVENTS AND ALARMS• Provides native integration with vCenter’sreporting functionality, extending:– Tasks: Report progress of UCP actionsperformed by user– Events: Report status of UCP managedserver, networks and storage elements– Alarms: Triggered by events to escalateproblems• UCP registers 35+ new alarms withinvCenter to allow tracking infrastructurehardware and software problems– These alarms are pre-defined and pre-registered within vCenter as a part ofUCP but can be suppressed/re-activatedby the customerEvents Panel
  22. 22. SOFTWARE FEATURES – SECURITY• Authentication– Active Directory Integrated Authentication– Provide single sign-on experience from thevSphere Client• Authorization (Role Base Access Control)– Manage UCP Privileges in vCenter– Starter Roles• UCP System Administrator• UCP Server Administrator• UCP Storage Administrator• UCP Network AdministratorSeamless vCenter Integration – Authentication and Authorization
