Using the Sample - Server XML Configuration Command Line Task

The following are the prerequisites for using the Sample - Server XML Configuration command line task:
  • Lifecycle Controller 2 version 1.2 or later
  • RACADM version 7.2 or later
  • Firmware version 1.30.30 or later
  • Express or Enterprise license
  • iDRAC7
The Sample - Server XML Configuration command line task allows you to apply a specific server configuration to multiple managed nodes. Using Lifecycle Controller 2 version 1.2 or later, a server configuration summary can be exported from an iDRAC in XML format through the “Export Server Configuration” operation.
  • NOTE: For information on exporting the server configuration summary using Lifecycle Controller 2, see the Configuration XML Workflows white paper at DellTechCenter.com/LC.
The server configuration summary XML file can be applied to another iDRAC using the Sample - Server XML Configuration command line task.
  • NOTE: To apply the server configuration summary from one iDRAC to another iDRAC, both the iDRACs must be of the same generation, same license state, and so on. For more information on the requirements, see the Lifecycle Controller (LC) XML Schema Guide , Server Configuration XML File, and Configuration XML Workflows white papers at DellTechCenter.com/LC.
