Deploy Hardware Workflow
12c Release 2 (188.8.131.52.0)
This workflow provides an end-to-end example for how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
Workflows are divided into two categories: Deploy and Operate. Each workflow is a compilation of several examples.
This workflow in an example of how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to deploy Hardware. The examples in this workflow include how to discover and manage hardware assets such as Oracle SPARC M5-32 and M6-32 servers, SPARC T5 servers, LOM and XSCF based servers, InfiniBand switches, and Power Distribution Units (PDU). Separate workflows describe how to deploy Operating Systems and Networks.
All the examples use a discovery profile to add new assets.
The following permissions and roles are required to complete the tasks in the workflow:
Asset Admin or Ops Center Admin
Add, find, and delete assets. Edit asset attributes. Management tasks for groups of assets.
Create and manage the discovery profiles.
Figure 1 is the workflow for deploying hardware in your data center. The diagram lists the prerequisite workflows on the left and the tasks and decisions for the workflow on the right.
In Figure 1, the workflow includes deploying discovering and managing hardware, discovering and managing Oracle SPARC M5 and M6 servers, discovering and managing an Oracle T5 server, adding InfiniBand switches, and discovering and managing a Power Distribution Unit.
Before you begin, ensure that you have met the following prerequisites that are listed in the workflow:
Install and configure the Enterprise Manager Ops Center Enterprise and Proxy Controllers.
Deploy the software libraries that you will use for provisioning and updating operating systems on the servers you add.
Deploy the storage infrastructure that you will use for provisioning and updating operating systems on the hardware assets you add.
At the end of this workflow, you will have hardware assets that you can manage, and monitor. Some of the management tasks available in Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center are updating firmware and provisioning operating systems to hardware assets.
To deploy operating systems or networks, see the following workflows:
