Summary

Auto Deploy GUI is a front end interface to the Auto Deploy/Stateless infrastructure.

Features

The Auto Deploy GUI is a vSphere plug-in for the VMware vSphere Auto Deploy component. The GUI plug-in allows a user to easily manage the setup and deployment requirements in a stateless environment managed by Auto Deploy. Some of the features provided through the GUI include the ability to add/remove Depots, list/create/modify Image Profiles, list VIB details, create/modify rules to map hosts to Image Profiles, check compliance of hosts against these rules and re-mediate hosts.

What is New
  • Supports vSphere 6.0
  • Image Profile Wizard – new VIB filter
  • New PXE Host List and Boot Configuration troubleshooting tools
Note: this is the last release to include vSphere 5.0 support

Requirements

  • Verify that you have a supported vSphere Client installed.
  • Verify that you are a member of the Administrators group on the system.
  • Verify that the host machine has Windows Installer 3.0 or later.
  • Verify that the system has an Internet connection.
  • The Autodeploy GUI Plugin requires the Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1 Framework. The .NET 3.5 SP1 installation might require Internet connectivity to download more files.
  • Verify that you have at least one working vSphere Auto Deploy Server

Note : vSphere Auto Deploy is not necessary (but recommended) to use the image builder feature only
