Installing WinRM

Deployment Solution for Dell Servers

WinRM is short for Windows Remote Management, which is freely available from Microsoft. It is the Microsoft standard for remote management and allows administrators to remotely execute and manage Windows computers.

You must install WinRM 1.1 or later to run the provisioning tasks. WinRM should be installed on the same computer that your Notification Server is installed on. It also needs to be installed on any task servers that are associated with that Notification Server.

For more information about installing WinRM on site servers, see https://kb.altiris.com/article.asp?article=52114&p=1.

WinRM sends tasks or commands to your server's DRAC using the WS-MAN protocol.

See Creating provisioning credentials

For example, WinRM tells the DRAC to reboot to a network ISO and unpack and attach drivers for an OS scripted installation.
