You can use DTK to build script-based and RPM-based installation for deploying large number of systems on a preoperating system environment in a reliable way, without changing their current deployment processes.
If you have the DTK CD mounted under "/mnt/cdrom," you can extract the DTK RPMs to build your customized ISO image under the "RPMs" folder at the root of the CD. Operating Systems Requirements Using DTK utilities you can deploy the following Linux operating systems: • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 (64–bit) • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.0 (64–bit) • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 (64–bit) What’s New The new features for this release include: • Support for deployment of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

RAIDCFG Issues • You can assign up to 10 Global hot spares using Raidcfg. Use the Dell OpenManage Server Administrator Storage Management for assigning more than 10 Global hot spares. • USB keys should not be mounted to the /tmp directory. Inside the /tmp directory, create a new directory and mount the USB to this. • On Dell PERC H310 controllers, conversion of a RAID Capable Disk to Non-RAID disk and vice versa is not supported using raidcfg.
