Editing a device deployment template

You can edit a device deployment template to change the values of the attributes before you deploy on the target devices.

  • NOTE: Editing of an IOA template is not supported.

To edit a device deployment template:

  1. Click Deployment > Deployment Portal .
  2. In the Templates pane, right-click a template, and then click Edit.
  3. The boot configurations and the network interface settings are displayed in the Boot and Network Configuration tab in the right pane. Under First Boot Configuration, select the boot mode and the boot type.
    • NOTE: The default boot type is selected based on the boot type that is specified in the captured template.
    If FC is selected as the boot type, then enter details in the following fields:
    1. First Target WWPN—the WWPN address
    2. First Target LUN Id—the LUN ID for the first target
    3. Second Target WWPN—the WWPN address
    4. Second Target LUN Id—the LUN ID for the second target.
    If FCoE is selected as the Boot Type, then enter details in the following fields:
    1. First Target WWPN—the WWPN address
    2. First Target LUN Id—the LUN ID for the first target
  4. Click More Settings to change the boot sequence and the hard drive sequence.
  5. Under Network Interface Settings, all the network interfaces settings available in the selected template are displayed.
    1. If the partitioning is supported, then enable the partitioning and provide the Minimum Bandwidth (%) and Maximum Bandwidth (%).
    2. For the templates captured from the modular servers, provide the Tagged VLAN(s) and the Untagged VLAN values for the IOA ports under Integrated NIC.
  6. Click Save. The values that are provided in the Tagged VLAN(s) and the Untagged VLAN fields are displayed in the IOA VLAN Attributes tab.
  7. The attributes of the template are displayed in the Attributes tab in the right pane. If you do not want to deploy a particular attribute in the template and want to retain the current attribute value on the target device, clear the check box for that attribute in the Deploy column.
  8. To select or clear all the attributes in the template, select or clear the check box that is displayed next to the Deploy column title.
    • NOTE: If the value of an attribute depends on another attribute, the dependency is indicated in the Dependencies column of the configuration template. To deploy the dependent attributes, you must first edit the primary attributes, and then edit the dependent attribute.
  9. To select multiple rows of attributes, select the row that has the first attribute, press and hold the <Shift> key, and click the row that has the last attribute. To select or clear the attributes of the selected rows, right-click and select Check or Uncheck.
