With OpenManage Essentials (OME) version 2.3, basic and intuitive guidance is now provided to set up first restart and update network settings in a server configuration template. These are very common use cases intercepted in a server’s life-cycle. This technical white paper includes:

  • Configuring VLANs on Dell EMC Networking IOAs included within server template deployment workflows.
  • Stateless computing provides a powerful abstraction that allows workloads to seamlessly move from hardware to hardware and scale workloads. Maintaining a stateless environment and quickly responding to errors is difficult.
  • The device configuration features (deploying bare-metal devices and auto deployment) have changed, and are important to understand in order to compliment the stateless feature set. Best practices and troubleshooting for the stateless and bare-metal deployment are also included.
