Abstract

Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment provisions operating systems and applications to computers using the PXE (Pre-boot eXecution Environment) 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 Linux systems using Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment.
Note that this Redpaper is specifically geared to IT Specialists, who will be working on Linux deployment projects. For a full discussion of Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment, including installation, customization and other product integrations, you can refer to Deployment Guide Series: Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment V5.1, SG24-7397.
