You can perform deployment by creating deployment tasks. Follow the steps given below to add deployment tasks,
Under Deployment, select Deployment Task.
Select Add Deployment Tasks
Adding deployment tasks
You can deploy image either by generating passcode or by remotely waking up computer.
You can select the deployment method to deploy the images.
In multicast deployment method the server sends the image copy to multiple computers at the same time and this prevents excess bandwidth consumption. For example, if you have purchased 100 bare metal machines and you want deploy OS to them at the same time, you can choose multicast method. The bandwidth consumption will be less in this method, since the same copy of OS image will be sent to all the target computers at a time. This method is recommended when you want to deploy images to multiple computers.
In unicast deployment method the server sends the image copy to each computer one by one. For example, you might have a new joiner in your organization and you want to give a new system to him with a specific OS, you can choose unicast deployment method. In this method, server will send the OS image to each target computer separately. This method is recommended for deployment upto 5 computers.
Specify the time interval for the target computers to connect to the server. The waiting time will be initiated once you click the Deploy Now button. If you enable the Schedule Deployment option the waiting time will start at the scheduled time. During this time interval, the server will wait for the target computers to connect and the deployment will be initiated once the target computer is connected to the server.
Note: Ensure that you set the required deployment waiting time, since the authentication passcode has to be entered within the specified time to initiate deployment.
You can schedule the time interval for deployment based on the feasible time in your organization.
Deployment task has been created successfully. Boot the computer using bootable media and initiate deployment. You can view the status of the deployment under the Deployment status tab.
