Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Auto deploying device configurations

The Setup Auto Deployment task enables you to deploy either a device configuration or network ISO image on target devices that you discover later. For example, if your company has ordered 500 systems that are expected to be delivered through the next two weeks, you can create the Setup Auto Deployment task. The Setup Auto Deployment task runs periodically and deploys the configuration after the devices are discovered.

When creating the task, you must import a .csv file that includes the Service Tags or node IDs of target devices on which you want to deploy the configuration. By default, the Setup Auto Deployment task is run every 60 minutes to identify if the target devices have been discovered. If a target device is discovered, the device configuration is automatically deployed to the target device. You can also modify the recurrence of the Setup Auto Deployment task based on your preference.

  • NOTE: If you create auto deployment tasks in OpenManage Essentials version 2.0, 2.0.1, or 2.1 and then upgrade to version 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 or 2.5, the auto deployment tasks do not run successfully. In this scenario, Dell EMC recommends that you recreate the auto deployment tasks after upgrading OpenManage Essentials to version 2.2, 2.3,2.4, or 2.5.
  • NOTE: Auto Deployment feature is not applicable for IOA templates.
