The Dell™ Systems Build and Update Utility (SBUU) includes a single tool to enable basic life cycle management of Dell systems:

  • Simple OS Installation (LINUX and WINDOWS) with device drivers
  • Firmware and BIOS Update using (SUU)
  • Hardware Configuration (BIOS, iDRAC and RAID Configuration)

On Dell servers newer than the 11th generation (11G - released in 2009), the on-board bootable Unified Server Configurator (A component of the Lifecycle Controller) provides similar functionality to SBUU without the need for a CD.

by Vivek SBUU 7.2 - Win2012 x64 Installation
This demo shows how to use the SBUU to install Microsoft® Windows® on a bare-metal Dell PowerEdge™ server.

  • Agreed.  None of the Dell software downloads allow for a forward link to get to the current release.  You can go backwards, but never forwards...

  • No wonder you are selling the business.   HOW the <ADMIN NOTE: Substitute character removed as per TOU> do I get the download for Christ sake.

    Lose the Stupid OPEN Manage this that and other termonology and just give us a link to get an installation CD.

    No wonder I quit Buying DELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The current SBUU version 2.4.0-866 does not show the option to install Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2.
