Import and apply server pattern

A server pattern represents a bare-metal server configuration and can be applied to multiple servers at a time.

The appropriate server pattern is available in the D:\Lenovo\LXCA directory on the HLH. To import the Lenovo Azure Stack Hub server pattern, follow these steps:
  1. At the top menu of the XClarity Administrator browser interface, select Provisioning > Patterns.
  2. On the Configuration Patterns: Patterns page, click the Import icon (), and then Select Files….
  3. For the Purley platform, navigate to D:\Lenovo\LXCA, select the file titled SR650PatternThinkAgileSXM_<date>.json and then click Open. For the Broadwell platform, select the file titled x3650PatternThinkAgileSXM_<date>.json and then click Open.
  4. Click Import. When the import success window displays, click Close.
  5. To deploy the pattern, select the checkbox to the left of the pattern that was just imported and click the Deploy Pattern icon ().

  6. Ensure that the Partial – Activate BMC settings but do not restart the server... radio button is selected, then select all Azure Stack Hub scale unit nodes and click Deploy.
    Important: Make sure that the Partial... option is selected, since we do NOT want all the nodes to restart at the same time.

This completes the XClarity Administrator deployment and configuration process. You may now return to Updating ThinkAgile SXM solution firmware to begin the firmware update process on the nodes.
