Server Configuration and Deployment Management Introduction

Server Configuration and Deployment Management Introduction


eSight supports template-based server configuration and deployment. Administrators can define common server configurations, including RAID controller card, BIOS, and OS information, as templates. After that they can create template-based deployment tasks to deploy configurations to servers in batches.


Server configuration and deployment implements the following:

  • Template management

    Administrators can create BIOS, RAID, OS, iBMC, CNA, switch module, network, and power control templates. After configuring configuration templates, administrators can use the template to generate typical configuration files quickly, which can then be used to deploy servers in batches.

  • Task management
    • By creating a template task, administrators can deliver the configuration in the template to devices according to the deployment policy.
    • By creating a batch replication task, administrators can deliver the configuration of the source device to target devices according to the deployment policy.
  • Software source management

    Administrators can upload, change, or delete OS software packages.

Application Restrictions

Application restrictions on configuration deployment are as follows:

  • This function applies only to Huawei rack, blade, and high-density servers.
  • To ensure that the configuration deployment function works properly, a maximum of 16 IP addresses can be set on a server where eSight is installed.
  • Before administrators use the OS configuration deployment function for the first time after eSight installation, they need to download and rename the ServiceCD file, and copy it to a specified directory.
  • When a template is deployed, the server will be restarted, causing service interruption.
  • The switch module stacking configuration does not support inter-chassis stacking but supports only intra-chassis stacking.
  • For the 8100 series devices, if multiple RAID controller cards are installed on the mainboard, eSight does not support RAID controller card configuratio

Key Parameters

eSight supports a maximum of 10 concurrent configuration and deployment tasks.
