Bare-metal deployment issues

This section deals with issues found during the deployment process.

Auto discovery and handshake prerequisites

  • Prior to running auto discovery and handshake, ensure that iDRAC and Lifecycle Controller firmware and BIOS versions meet the minimum recommendations.
  • CSIOR must have run at least once on the system or iDRAC.

Hardware configuration failure

  • Before initiating a deployment task, ensure that the system has completed CSIOR and is not in the process of rebooting.
  • BIOS configuration should be run in clone mode so that the reference server is an identical system.
  • Some controllers do not allow creation of a RAID 0 array with one drive. This feature is supported only on high-end controllers, and the application of such a hardware profile can cause failures.
