Copy a server profile

You can copy a server profile to server hardware of the same server hardware type and in the same enclosure group (for server blades). If you are deploying multiple servers of the same type into the same enclosure, you can create a server profile template to streamline server provisioning. For more information, see Server Profile Templates.

Prerequisites

Privileges: Infrastructure administrator or Server administrator

Procedure
  1. From the main menu, select Server Profiles.
  2. In the master pane, select the server profile you want to copy.
  3. Select Actions > Copy.
  4. Specify a unique entry for Name.
  5. Select either unassigned server hardware or a specific server hardware. You can select a server that is powered off or powered on.
  6. Specify any other updates you want to make to the server profile.
    NOTE:

    You cannot change Server hardware type and Enclosure group.

  7. Click Create.
    NOTE:

    The Create operation might fail if you are trying to set values that cannot be set when the server hardware is powered on. Only under some conditions, can you create or copy a server profile while the server hardware is powered on.

  8. Verify that the new profile was created in the master pane.
