The HPE Scripting Toolkit provides a flexible way to create standard server configuration scripts. These scripts are used to automate many of the manual steps in the server configuration process. This automated server configuration process cuts time from each server deployed, making it possible to scale server deployments to high volumes in rapid fashion. The HPE Scripting Toolkit is designed for IT experts with experience in scripting operating system installations and configuring HP ProLiant server hardware. The HPE Scripting Toolkit supports HPE ProLiant servers, in both Windows and Linux environments and includes limited ProLiant 100 series support prior to Gen8. With Gen8 servers, all of the 100 series are supported. The HPE Scripting Toolkit includes a modular set of utilities and important documentation that describe how to apply these new tools to build an automated server deployment process.

Upgrade Requirement:
Optional - Users should update to this version if their system is affected by one of the documented fixes or if there is a desire to utilize any of the enhanced functionality provided by this version.


Added support for new HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers.
