Overview of Stateless Deployment

The steps that you must perform to deploy a device configuration template with virtual I/O attributes 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. Create Virtual I/O Pool — Use the Create Virtual I/O Pool task in the Common Tasks pane to create a pool of one or more virtual I/O identity types. The virtual I/O identity pool is used to assign virtual I/O identities to the target devices.

  4. Create Compute Pool — Use the Create Compute Pool task in the Common Tasks pane to create a group of servers that you want to use for a specific purpose. You can associate a device configuration template and virtual I/O pool to the compute pool.

  5. Deploy the device configuration template on target devices — Use the Deploy Template task in the Common Tasks pane to deploy the device configuration template and virtual I/O identities on the target devices.
