Abstract

Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment provisions operating systems and applications to computers using the Pre-boot eXecution Environment (PXE) industry standard for bare-metal installation. A bare-metal installation eliminates the need for an operating system to be present on a local disk drive. Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment is a turn-key solution to the most common provisioning issues and provides an easy to use, turn-key solution for education, SMB, or larger accounts.

In this IBM Redpaper, we discuss how to deploy Vista, Microsoft's newest operating system, using Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment.

Note that this IBM Redpaper is specifically geared to IT Specialists who will be working on Vista deployment projects. For a full discussion of Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment, including installation, customization, and other product integrations, refer to Deployment Guide Series: Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment V5.1, SG24-7397.
