Dell OpenManage Deployment Toolkit

The Dell OpenManage Deployment Toolkit (DTK) (v5.1, Release Date: 15 Apr 2015) includes a set of utilities for configuring and deploying Dell PowerEdge systems.

The DTK is designed for customers who need to build scripted installations to deploy large numbers of servers in a reliable fashion without having to dramatically change their current deployment processes.

In addition to the command-line utilities used to configure various system features, the DTK also provides sample scripts and configuration files to perform common deployment tasks and documentation. These files and scripts describe the use of DTK in Microsoft® Windows® Pre-installation Environment (Windows PE) and embedded Linux® environments.

The benefits of the DTK:

  • Provides the tools necessary to automate the pre-operating system configuration tasks and the unattended operating system installation tasks when deploying PowerEdge systems.
  • Scales to support from one to many system deployment efforts.
  • Facilitates consistent system configurations across multiple systems.
  • Provides diverse and useful deployment tools that can be utilized in many different ways.
