Back in February Max Daneri released his Auto Deploy GUI fling. This builds on the success of his PXE Manager fling released last year. Lots of other blogs have already reported this fling, but I have been asked three times this week where they can download it from. I will be writing a blog post soon on how to actually use this fling, much the same way I did with Max’s PXE Manager.
Auto Deploy GUI is a front end interface to the Auto Deploy/Stateless infrastructure.
The Auto Deploy GUI is a vSphere plug-in for the VMware vSphere Auto Deploy component. The GUI plug-in allows a user to easily manage the setup and deployment requirements in a stateless environment managed by Auto Deploy. Some of the features provided through the GUI include the ability to add/remove Depots, list/create/modify Image Profiles, list VIB details, create/modify rules to map hosts to Image Profiles, check compliance of hosts against these rules and re-mediate hosts.
The GUI can be downloaded from labs.vmware.com/flings/autodeploygui
There is a PDF document that explains how to configure and install the GUI plugin. The document can be downloaded from download3.vmware.com/software/vmw-tools/autodeploygui/VMwareAutoDeployGUIPracticalGuide5.pdf
