Modes of operation

ServerGuide Scripting Toolkit, Windows Edition uses three different modes of operation to support a variety of deployment scenarios. Each mode is designed to address a different set of deployment requirements.

These modes are:
Local deployment
Local deployments provide a simple means of deploying an image to a system that is physically accessible. This deployment mode does not require access to a network share. For local deployments, use the Toolkit to create a complete image with all of the required files and then burn that image to a CD or DVD-ROM or copy it to a USB key, which you then use to deploy the image to the system.
Network deployment
Network deployments require the target system to have access to a network share. Use the Toolkit to create an image containing the minimum required files and burn that image to a CD or DVD-ROM or copy it to a USB key. Use this media to boot the target system, and the deployment is completed by using files from the network share.
Remote deployment
Remote deployments allow the use of a Remote Supervisor Adapter II, Integrated Management Module (IMM), BladeCenter Management Module, or BladeCenter Advanced Management Module to deploy the Scripting Toolkit image remotely. Create an ISO image, CD, or DVD-ROM of the required Scripting Toolkit deployment files, and then use one of these remote deployment options to send the deployment files to the remote target system. The use of a USB key is not supported for this mode of operation.
