OSD: Validity of exisiting white paper to deploy ProLiant servers

Hi,

There is an existing white paper 'Deployment of HP ProLiant Servers Using System Center Configuration Manager 2007' on http://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPSCCMOSDWP. which describes how to deploy ProLiant servers using SCCM 2007. This does not include information on how to reboot strait away after configuring the raid controller, so that the configuration is recognised by WinPE. Can you tell me:

* If this works, why do we need the System Center Integration tools?

* If this doesn't work, why is the white paper available?

We are confused about this, as we are just about to start deploying servers, and think we need to purchase additional software.

Regards,

Ian

The 'Deployment of HP ProLiant Servers Using System Center Configuration Manager 2007' was published in April 2008 to help HP customers start using Microsoft's Configuration Manager 2007 to manually develop an OSD Task Sequence.

The HP ProLiant Server OS Deployment for Configuration Manager 2007 kit, in the Insight Control suite for System Center, integrates with the Task Sequence Editor, and provides new integrated Wizards so you can easily utilize ProLiant server configuration tools and drivers from the HP SmartStart Scripting Toolkit during the operation system deployment process.

The HP ProLiant Server OS Deployment for Configuration Manager 2007 is available from, and supported by HP, and provides the following functionality:

- Seamless integration of HP SmartStart Scripting Toolkit with Configuration Manager 2007 Operating System Deployment

- Deployment of Windows Server® 2008 X64 and X86 editions ProLiant servers

- Complementing the full line of HP management tools
