Configure the firmware

Several options are available to install and set up the firmware for the solution.

  • Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager

    From Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager, you can configure the UEFI settings for your solution.

From Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager, you can choose to restart the solution and access the text-based interface. In addition, you can choose to make the text-based interface the default interface that is displayed when you press F1.
  • Lenovo XClarity Essentials OneCLI

    You can use the config application and commands to view the current system configuration settings and make changes to Lenovo XClarity Controller and UEFI. The saved configuration information can be used to replicate or restore other systems.

  • Lenovo XClarity Administrator

    You can quickly provision and pre-provision all of your solutions using a consistent configuration. Configuration settings (such as local storage, I/O adapters, boot settings, firmware, ports, and Lenovo XClarity Controller and UEFI settings) are saved as a solution pattern that can be applied to one or more managed solutions. When the solution patterns are updated, the changes are automatically deployed to the applied solutions.
