Added Functionality · Deploy Smart Array RAID 5 configuration job. Installed as part of the ProLiant Hardware feature. The hpacuscripting utility has changed functionality and using Custom versus Auto is now required to setup RAID 5 in the initialization file.

Known Issues

· WinPE 3.0 from the Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 is not supported and should not be installed on the intended Deployment Server The Deployment Server installation will fail if this WAIK is installed. Only WAIK 1.1/WinPE 2.1 (for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008) is supported. · An RDP installation on Windows localized in Italian or Spanish requires the English Windows AIK Localized Italian or Spanish Windows AIK does not have support for WinPE IA64 which is required for RDP installation. · Jobs exported from Deployment Server versions prior to 6.9 will not import Either an error message will be received or the import will complete, but the job will not appear in the Deployment Console. For information on how to resolve this issue and how to obtain a conversion utility, refer to Altiris Knowledgebase (Article 48574). · iLO - Power Off and iLO - Reset Server do not work for target servers containing Insight Lights-Out 3 Using the Power Control functions, iLO - Power Off and iLO - Reset Server, do not work for target servers with iLO3. The Power Control functions can be accessed using the Deployment Server console and right-mouse selecting the target server in the Computers pane.

Supported ProLiant Targets · Not every target platform configuration is supported by the Operating System support list. Refer to certification matrices: · Windows support for HP ProLiant Servers · Linux certification and support matrix - HP ProLiant servers · ProLiant server VMware support matrix Additionally, to deploy VMware ESX, a driver CD may be required for certain ProLiant models. Including the driver CD is not supported. Refer to the VMware Compatibility Guide for additional information. · Refer to support documents for additional information on how to deploy an operating system: · Knowledge Base article Servers With Multiple Disks Deployment Support (Article 20000038) · Knowledge Base article How To Perform a Boot From SAN Installation (Article 20000039) · Knowledge Base article Multipath SAN Deployment Support (Article 20000041) · For virtual machine deployment, Windows Server 2003 x86 or x64, Windows Server 2008 x86 or x64, and Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 may be deployed to a virtual machine created within one of the supported virtualization hosts, as well as, VMware ESX 3i, VMware ESX 4i, Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V x86/x64, or Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V. For additional deployment information, refer to Knowledge Base article Virtual Machine Deployment Support (Article 20000044). · Boot from SAN and SAN attached hardware configuration using Emulex and QLogic Fibre Channel HBAs are supported on all ProLiant server blades. · ProLiant DL100 series servers and virtual machines created within the supported virtualization hosts require PXE or Network boot first in the boot order. · Configuration of and operating system deployment to servers with RAID enabled through the ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU) is not supported. Windows deployments are supported when the target server contains the HP SmartArray B110i controller. This is the Intel SATA controller which becomes HP SmartArray B110i when set to RAID mode.
