Setting up provisioning jobs and post-provisioning jobs

The topics in the following table provide information about setting up provisioning jobs and post-provisioning jobs.

A provisioning job performs the unattended installation of an operating system on a server. It is the basic utility BMC Server Automation provides for provisioning physical servers.

A provisioning job can optionally include a post-provisioning step that launches a Batch Job, and the Batch Job can run a series of concatenated BMC Server Automation jobs. Using a Batch Job, you can build out the server stack as part of initial provisioning. For example, a provisioning job can run a Batch Job consisting of multiple sub-jobs that configure a web server.
