System Center Configuration Manager 2007 provides a new
interface for OS deployment and other actions through its Task
Sequence Editor. Using the Task Sequence Editor, you can create
flexible automated task sequences that can deploy ProLiant servers,
distribute software, modify configurations, and more. The HP
ProLiant Server OS Deployment for System Center Configuration
Manager 2007 kit integrates with the Task Sequence Editor so you
can easily utilize ProLiant server configuration tools and drivers
from the HP SmartStart Scripting Toolkit during the operation
system deployment process.
This guide provides information and instructions for Windows
Server® operating system deployment utilizing the HP ProLiant
Server OS Deployment kit. You must be familiar with the Operating
System Deployment feature in Configuration Manager before using the
HP ProLiant Server OS Deployment kit. For details on the SmartStart
Scripting Toolkit, see the HP SmartStart Scripting Toolkit
Windows Edition User Guide.
NOTE: The HP ProLiant Server OS Deployment
for System Center Configuration Manager 2007 uses PXE services
provided by Windows Deployment Server. Insight Control server
deployment, which is part of the Insight Control suite, provides
its own PXE services. Insight Control server deployment and
ProLiant OS Deployment must not both be installed at the same time,
as networking issues might arise.
