Overview

IBM FastSetup software
Platform management tool for fast server deployment.

Speed your server deployment and maintenance!

IBM FastSetup is a no-cost software tool that helps simplify the maintenance and deployment of select IBM x86 servers, including: System x rack servers, BladeCenter blade servers, and IBM Flex System compute nodes. The intuitive GUI initializes all phases of server setup, including discovery, update, and configuration. Features include templates that enable replication of settings across many servers and automation that reduces both hands-on time and user errors. Wizards and other default settings enable flexible customization capabilities. The low-touch, set-once and walk-away feature reduces the hands-on server setup time from days to minutes, particularly for larger deployments.

Intended users:

  • IT administrators
  • IBM Business Partners
  • Value Added Resellers (VARs)

Supported systems and components are detailed in the IBM FastSetup white paper and include:

  • The BladeCenter H chassis and blade servers
    The BladeCenter S chassis (No RSSM update support is provided) and blade servers
    IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis and Compute Nodes (Note: IBM FastSetup will exit if a Flex System Manager is present on the network. It is highly recommended that the Flex System Manager be utilized to manage the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis. IBM FastSetup can still be used to support System x, and BladeCenter servers in this environment.)
