Provisioning

The Systems  Provisioning section allows you to manage provisioning for the selected client. This includes managing and scheduling autoinstallation, booting the selected client, and managing snapshots of the client configuration state.

The Systems  Provisioning tab is split into subtabs:

Autoinstallation

This section displays a list of the available autoinstallation profiles for the selected client. Select a time and date for autoinstallation to re-install the client.

For more information about autoinstallation, see client-configuration:autoinst-intro.adoc.

Power Management

This section allows you to power on, power off, and reboot the selected client.

This feature uses either the IPMI or Redfish protocol and is managed using a Cobbler profile. The selected client must have a power management controller supporting one of these protocols. For Redfish, ensure you can establish a valid SSL connection between the client and the Uyuni Server.

Complete the details for the power management server, and click the appropriate button for the action to take. Click Get status to determine if the client is currently running. Click Save only to save the details without taking any action.

Click Remove Cobbler System Profile to remove the current client’s system profile from Cobbler. For more information about unattended provisioning with Cobbler, see client-configuration:autoinst-unattended.adoc.

For more information about power management, see client-configuration:power-management.adoc.

Snapshots

This section shows a list of the snapshots taken for the current client. Click the name of a snapshot to see more details. You can use the subtabs in the Provisioning  Snapshots tab to see the changes that rolling back to the selected snapshot will make to:

  • Group memberships

  • Channel subscriptions

  • Installed packages

  • Configuration channel subscriptions

  • Configuration files

  • Snapshot tags

Click Rollback to Snapshot to roll back to the selected snapshot.

For more information about snapshots, see client-configuration:snapshots.adoc.

Snapshot Tags

This sections shows a list of the snapshot tags for the current client. Click the tag name to see more information about the snapshot. Click Create System Tag to apply a new tag to the most recent snapshot.

For more information about snapshots, see client-configuration:snapshots.adoc.
