About DTK tasks for Dell servers

Deployment Solution for Dell Servers

Deployment Solution for Dell provides several predefined task types under the DTK folder.

See About deployment tasks and jobs for Dell servers

The Simple tasks limit the options that you can change. However, you don't need to know the exact command or any of the configuration file information for each option.

The Advanced tasks capture the complete configuration file that exists on the specified server and let you see every setting in it. For the BIOS interfaces and the DRAC cards, you can change every setting separately. The tasks for configuring RAID work in a different manner.
