Script assisted installation
The scripting capability of HPE ProLiant technology provides an easy and efficient way to configure and maintain management processes in large scale IT environments, saving time and money. The following scripting tools provide a method to configure multiple iLO systems, to incorporate a standard configuration into the deployment process, and to control servers and storage systems.
HPE’s first priority in support automation technology is the security and reliability of the connection. HPE does not collect customers’ application information or business data. Diagnostic data is communicated through a restricted and tightly controlled secure access point. All information collected is encrypted and digitally signed using an X.509 certificate prior to transport to HPE. Data is sent to HPE via secure HTTPS and is stored in a secure data facility in one of HPE’s corporate data centers.
