    • Boot MAC address,
    • SMBIOS information,
    • BIOS UUID,
    • Vendor,
    • Model,
    • Fixed DHCP IP address.
  3. Which types of rule sets does Auto Deploy support at any one time?
    Active rule set and the Working rule set, are supported.

    D. Copied and edited, but not deleted

  5. What are the differences between the two types of Auto Deploy rule sets?
    • The Active Rule Set ¬†is¬†checked when a newly started host contacts the Auto Deploy server with a request for an image profile. The image profile, host profile, and vCenter Server inventory location that are mapped by matching rules are then used to boot the host.
    • If more than one item of the same type is mapped by the rules, the Auto Deploy server uses the item that is first in the rule set.

    • The Working Rule Set is used to test changes to rules before making the changes active, such as testing compliance
    • By default, cmdlets add the rule to the working rule set and activate the rules.
    • The NoActivate parameter to add a rule only to the working rule set.

    • 1. Boot up the server
