Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Getting started for device configuration deployment

Before you deploy a device configuration to target devices, you must:
  1. Configure the deployment file share on the server running OpenManage Essentials.
    • NOTE: In OpenManage Essentials version 2.5, streaming functionality is used for the device configuration deployment and configuration compliance for the following devices:
      • PowerEdge servers with the latest version of iDRAC7 or 8, and firmware versions of 2.50.50.50 and later installed.
      • PowerEdge servers with the latest version of iDRAC9, and firmware versions of 3.00.00.00 and later installed.
    • NOTE: It is recommended to upgrade the servers to the latest firmware versions, and avoid using file share settings due to security reasons in the Windows operating systems.
  2. Add target devices to the repurpose and bare-metal group.
