OS deployment fails due to missing drivers

When deploying Red Hat® Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Server or SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) to a server, you might see an error message that stops the deployment and the deployment job eventually times out.

This issue can occur when the operating-system image does not contain drivers to support all adapters that are installed in the managed server.

Out-of-box drivers are not proloaded in Lenovo XClarity Administrator for certain Mellanox IB adapters. Therefore, deploying RHEL or SLES to a server with these Mellanox adapters is not supported. For more information about Mellanox adapter limitations, see the Lenovo XClarity Administrator Support for Mellanox adapters webpage.
