Server Profile Templates

Server profile templates help to monitor, flag, and update server profiles in HPE OneView. A server profile template serves as a structural reference when creating a server profile. All of the configuration constructs of a server profile are present in the server profile template. This template type defines the centralized source for the configuration of firmware, connections, local storage, SAN storage, boot, BIOS, profile affinity, and hides unused FlexNICs.

A server profile continues to maintain an association to its server profile template after being created from a server profile template. Any drift in configuration consistency between the server profile template and server profiles is monitored and made visible on both the server profile template and the associated server profiles.
