Overview of bare-metal deployment

The steps that you must perform to deploy a device configuration template on target devices are as follows:
  1. Create a device configuration template—Use the Create Template task in the Common Tasks pane to create a device configuration template. You can choose to create the template from either a configuration file or a reference device.

  2. Edit the device configuration template—Select the template from the Templates pane, and edit the desired configuration attributes displayed in the right pane.

  3. Deploy the device configuration template on target devices —Use the Deploy Template task in the Common Tasks pane to select the template, target devices, edit device-specific attributes, and then deploy the configuration attributes. You can also use the Setup Auto Deployment task to deploy a device configuration template on devices that you will be discovering later.

  • NOTE: If the hardware of the device from which the device configuration template was created and the hardware of the deployment targets are identical, it enhances the possibility of the attributes being deployed successfully. If the hardware is not entirely identical, the deployment task may not complete successfully. However, the attributes for the matching components are deployed successfully.
