To deploy the Fleet Command Stack on a PowerEdge server using iDRAC, and then pair a server with the Fleet Command interface:
You can order the server with several iDRAC System Management options such as Static IP or DHCP with Zero Touch Configuration. When iDRAC is configured, ensure that in the system BIOS:
The ISO formatted image can be attached as a virtual media in iDRAC.
The activation code allows the edge server to be paired with Fleet Command. Fleet Command provides the activation code when there is a request to add a system to a location. The activation code is valid for 12 hours after it is created and a technician at the location must enter the activation code in that time.
After the activation is completed, the Fleet Command Stack is deployed on the edge system. You can now manage the system from Fleet Command.
Use the preceding steps to add multiple servers. The first server added to the location servers is a “master-worker” in a Kubernetes cluster. All subsequent servers act as Kubernetes “workers.”
