Although we have many methods to install an operating system (OS) using embedded management software such as Lifecycle Controller (GUI), Remote Enablement using WS-Man, Systems Build and Update Utility, and default manual installation, the method of installing an OS requires manual intervention at some stage during deployment.

Traditional or manual OS deployment by using Lifecycle Controller requires you to be present throughout the OS installation process. Lifecycle Controller (release 1.3 and later) provides an infrastructure for OS Deployment loaders to consume the OS configurations file for installation and continue OS deployment with minimal manual intervention.

This white paper aims to provide detailed information about the Unattended OS deployment feature available in Lifecycle Controller, such as WS-Man and RACADM.
