Altiris Deployment Solution from Symantec helps reduce the cost of deploying and managing servers, desktops, and notebooks from a centralized location in your environment. The solution offers OS deployment, configuration, PC "personality" migration, and software deployment across hardware platforms and OS types, including Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Solaris.
As a first step into integration of Cisco UCS with Altiris DS, we have built a Cisco UCS specific custom Linux pre-boot(LinPE) image which supports most of the current Cisco UCS servers and its sub-components.
Along with the custom image we have provided some basic sample jobs which can be readily used by the end user for OS install, backing up of the disk image and deployment of a pre backed up image.
The deployment of this Custom image requires some prior knowledge of the Altiris Deployment Solution.
It is recommended that users should first read the Quick Start Guide in order to deploy and use this custom image.
