OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Version 5.2 User's Guide

Deploy system profile and ISO profile

You can perform the deployment only on the compliant bare-metal servers. For more information, see View bare-metal servers.

  1. To launch the deployment wizard, go to Compliance & Deployment > Deployment > DEPLOY.
  2. On the System Profile and ISO Profile Deployment Checklist page of the deployment wizard, verify the deployment checklist, and then click GET STARTED.
  3. On the Select Server (s) page, select one or more servers.
    The Select Deployment Options page is displayed.
  4. On the Select Deployment Options page, select System Profile (Configuration of the hardware) and ISO Profile (ESXi installation).
  5. From the vCenter Name drop-down menu, select an instance of vCenter.
  6. To select the vCenter destination container, click BROWSE, and select an appropriate data center or cluster on which you want to deploy an operating system.
  7. To use the system profile associated with the cluster profile that is associated with the selected cluster, click confirm.
    • To select any other system profile, click Select another. It is recommended that you select the system profile that is associated with the cluster to avoid a configuration compliance drift.
  8. From the ISO Profile drop-down menu, select an appropriate ISO profile, and then click NEXT.
  9. To create a preview job on iDRAC, on the Configuration Preview page, select an iDRAC IP, and then click PREVIEW. Configuration Preview is an optional task.
    The system profile preview operation may take few minutes to complete. The comparison status is displayed in the Result column.

    The following are the comparison results:

    • Completed—The preview job is successfully run. For more information about the comparison results, click View Details in the Details column.
    • Not completed—The preview job is not successfully run on the iDRAC. Ensure that iDRAC is accessible, and perform iDRAC reset, if required. For more information about the job, see the OMIVV logs and the logs at iDRAC console.
  10. Complete the tasks 7–10 listed in the Deploy ISO profile (ESXi installation) topic.
