(imported topic written by JasonHonda)

The IBM Endpoint Manager OS Deployment team is pleased to announce the release of OS Deployment and Bare Metal Imaging 3.2.

No immediate actions will be required and the current product will continue to function as it does now. Be aware some features may change slightly in their UI or location. If using new features, you may be required to update your existing bare metal servers.

This release has the following features:

  • Targeting for bare metal based on property

  • Windows server class support for capture and imaging

  • UEFI x64 support

  • Ability to prompt for computer name during bare metal

  • Ability to create baselines for re-image tasks

  • Updated 3.0 MDT Bundle Creator to handle IBM Endpoint Manager 9.0 clients.

  • Minor bug fixes

Actions to take:

This release is an update of the existing site. A new 3.2 MDT Bundle may be created to take advantage of the new functionality. This can be downloaded using Fixlet 46 in the site. No immediate actions are required and the current product will continue to function normally. Some features and UI will have changed slightly. Bare metal servers should be updated as soon as possible to TPMfOSD 7.1.1 Fixpack 13 in order to use many of the new features. Tivoli Provisioning Manager for OS Deployment can be downloaded from FixCentral. If in an airgap environment or proxy environment, new files may need to be cached on the IBM Endpoint Manager server and/or console.
