Feature Request: Automated deployment via RMM4

The RMM4 is a very capable service processor, which already can be used for deploying OS images onto a server via a virtual CD-ROM from an .ISO image.

However, I would like to raise this feature to the next level by enabling PXE-like automated deployment via the RMM4 as well.

What I basically would like is to be able to auto-configure and deploy the server purely from the management network. PXE requires additional configuration of a production network port, and for high density servers like the H2000 series this is wasteful.

Could any of the existing deployment tools be used for this purpose already?

Hi,

Yours is a good feedback. While I can pass it over for future implementation consideration, currently, I comment PXE boot through an onboard NIC port is still recommended as alternative way of installing an Operating System.

Should you wonder, you can find the Intel® Remote Management Module 4 (Intel® RMM4) and Integrated BMC user guide here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-032371.htm?wapkw=rmm4 Server Products — Intel® Remote Management Module 4 (Intel® RMM4) and Integrated BMC user guide
