Deployment Solution for Dell Servers

For each task, Deployment Solution for Dell captures log files.

You can view these log files to see the actual command that ran, as well as its status and output. You can walk though each task to see the commands that the task executed and what happened on the client for each command.

  • Step 3: Delete any existing RAID configurations on the server with command B.

    Command B returned output O, which contains the output and any error messages.

  • Step 4: Configure the RAID by running command C.

    Command C returned output P, which contains the output and any error messages.

    The entire process took S number of seconds.
