After certain deployment operations, the MAC address of the server might be set to 0. To resolve this issue, apply
SoftPaq SP26187. Refer to Table 2 when applying this update to any ProLiant server with the NC7770
stand-up NIC.
2
Disk drive size must be smaller than 137 GB to successfully complete image capture and deploy with ATA RAID.
3
RAID set through the ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU) is not supported.

The server might stop responding when loading the Q57.DOS network driver. To resolve this issue, apply SoftPaq
SP26187.

Supported Deployment Mechanisms
The Altiris Deployment Solution has several mechanisms for deploying target servers. All
methods use the Altiris Deployment Agent for DOS. Table 5 displays a matrix of supported
target servers and the supported deployment mechanisms available for each server.
Preboot eXecution Environment
Target servers can connect to the Deployment Server by performing a Preboot eXecution
Environment (PXE) boot and receiving a boot image over the network. The boot image is
analogous to a boot diskette. PXE provides the most automated, hands-free bootstrap method
for server deployment.
All newer ProLiant servers ship with PXE-enabled embedded NICs or PXE-enabled stand-up
NICs. Some older servers that do not have PXE support can obtain support with a
PXE-enabled stand-up NIC. Refer to Table 2 for a list of stand-up NICs with PXE support.

2, 3
3.2.2
3
6.2.11
NC7770
NC7771
1
You must flash NC3123/Rev. I to enable PXE support. The IBAUTIL.EXE
utility that updates the PXE firmware is available in SP23495.exe.
2
Only NC7770/Rev. E or later is flash upgradeable. You must move the
EPROM WRITE jumper on the board to enable. A firmware update is
available in SP24987.exe.
3
For Wake-on-LAN (WOL) support with stand–up NICs, WOL must be
enabled on the NIC by the driver and ROM-Based Setup Utility (RBSU).
Some servers require a firmware upgrade to use PXE in the Rapid Deployment Pack. Refer to
Table 4 for details on required upgrades.
The boot images used by the Altiris PXE Server are DOS-based. By default, these images use
the Universal Network Driver Interface (UNDI) driver for network connectivity. The UNDI
driver functions with any PXE-enabled NIC.
It is possible to re-create the boot images so that they use an NDIS2 driver. However, these
images only function with servers in your environment that have NICs supported by that
NDIS2 driver.
IMPORTANT: HP strongly recommends that you use the default UNDI driver in your PXE boot images.
8
HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack—Windows Edition Support Matrix
The default location of PXE or network boot in the boot order varies based on the server and
the options installed. For the servers listed in Table 3, PXE or network boot must be placed
first in the boot order to support the server.

HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack—Windows Edition Support Matrix
Bootworks Diskette, RILOE, and iLO with Virtual Floppy
As an alternative to PXE, target servers can connect to the Deployment Server by creating a
physical Bootworks diskette with networking support. When booted, the diskette
automatically connects to the Altiris Deployment Server. This diskette can be used in the
physical diskette drive, or an image of the diskette can be booted through the Virtual Floppy
feature of Remote Insight Lights-Out Edition (RILOE) or Integrated Lights-Out (iLO).
However, the Virtual Floppy feature of RILOE and iLO is not an integrated feature of the
Rapid Deployment Pack.
The boot diskette must use an NDIS2 driver for network connectivity. For this reason, drivers
for each type of NIC in your environment are required (for example, Intel® or Broadcom).
IMPORTANT: To use the Virtual Floppy feature of iLO, you must purchase a license key for the
Integrated Lights-Out Advanced Pack. For information on the Integrated Lights-Out Advanced Pack,
refer to http://www.hp.com/servers/lights-out.
NOTE: For details on creating a Bootworks diskette, refer to Chapter 5 of the HP ProLiant Essentials
Rapid Deployment Pack—Windows Edition Installation Guide.
NOTE: A physical boot diskette can only be used with the headless ProLiant BL e-Class servers with
the bootable USB diskette drive attached to the diagnostic adapter or with the headless ProLiant
BL p-Class servers using the Virtual Floppy feature of iLO.
Bootworks Partition
Similar to the Bootworks diskette mechanism, a hidden or embedded partition can be created
on the hard drive of the server. When the partition is made active and booted, it automatically
connects to the Deployment Server.
NOTE: The Bootworks Partition deployment mechanism is not recommended for initial deployments or
scripted install redeployments.
