Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Configuring the deployment file share

Before creating or deploying a configuration template from a chassis, you must configure the deployment file share in OpenManage Essentials. However, configuring deployment file share for iDRAC devices is optional. iDRAC with the latest firmware version uses streaming functionality for creating or deploying a configuration template. The deployment file share temporarily stores the configuration file that retrieves and applies the configuration settings on a target server or chassis.

To configure the deployment file share:

  1. Perform one of the following:
    • Click Settings > Deployment Settings .
    • Click Deployment. In the Common Tasks pane, click File Share Settings.
    • Click Deployment > Getting Started for Deployment > Configure Deployment File Share .
    • Click Manage > Configuration . In the Common Tasks pane, click File Share Settings.
    The File Share Settings window is displayed.
  2. Type the domain\user name and password of the server that is running OpenManage Essentials.
  3. If not selected by default, select the Allow using the file share for Device Configuration feature on server check box.
  4. Click Apply. A warning message is displayed indicating that you must upgrade to the latest firmware version which uses the streaming functionality. Indicate your confirmation to proceed.
The deployment file share is now configured.
