Preboot Services allows you to automatically or manually do any of the following to a device when it boots up:
Configure the BIOS, BMC, RAID, and DRAC settings for Dell PowerEdge servers using a Dell Configuration bundle.
Run scripted installations on the device, such as AutoYaST and kickstart
Run ZENworks scripts on the device
Make an image of the device's hard drives and other storage devices
Restore an image to the device
Apply an existing image to multiple devices
To accomplish these tasks automatically through the ZENworks Control Center, you need to have PXE (Preboot Execution Environment) enabled on your devices, and have prebootable tasks configured and assigned to the devices. Then, the devices can automatically implement these tasks when they boot. For instructions, see Section VI, Preboot Services.
