    Integration with Micrsoft Windows 2012 DHCP / DNS / Windows Deployment Solution and Cisco UCS

    This example shows end to end deployment of Cisco UCS plus Windows 2012.  In the script and video, you will see a UCS Service Profile being created from a UCS Service Profile Template, associated with a blade, DHCP and DNS entries created based on the hardware attributes derived from the service profile created, and Windows Deployment Solutions Pre-staged device was created from the hardware attributes derived from the service profile created and the unattended installation files needed to drive the unattended Windows 2012 installation.  After the service profile is fully associated and DNS / DHCP / WDS configurations are created, the server is powered on and WDS will automate OS installation utilizing the UCS Drivers added to the WDS driver repository previously.
