Provisioning history

The Provisioning history option enables you to view the history of a provisioning template. You can check on the status of a particular task, determine how a particular device was provisioned, or find out which devices were provisioned with a particular template. When a system is provisioned, all the actions (successful and failed) are recorded in the provisioning history.

If you want to put a system back into a known state, you can replay the template that lets you return to that known state. If you want to replay a template, keep in mind that some actions are external to provisioning. Save any software distribution packages, agent configurations, and programs that you download and execute in conjunction with a template. Otherwise you won’t be able to replay them.

To view a template's provisioning history
  1. Click Tools > Provisioning > OS provisioning.
  2. Under Provisioning templates, click the Public or My templates folders to display templates.
  3. Double-click a template.
  4. Click History.
  5. Click a name in the Task name column and click Select to view details about that task.

NOTE: If the template has never been executed, there will be no history.

To view the provisioning history by task
  1. Click Tools > Distribution > Scheduled tasks.
  2. Under My tasks or Public tasks, click the task name.
  3. Click a category under the task (All devices, Active, Pending, Successful, or Failed). Targeted devices are listed in these categories, depending on the status of the provisioning task on the device.
  4. Right-click a targeted device and select Provisioning history.
  5. Click Properties to view the provisioning template properties.
  6. Expand a template section and click an action to view details of the action's deployment.
To view the provisioning history by device
  1. In the network view, click My devices or Public devices and find the device.
  2. Right-click the device and select Provisioning history.
  3. Click a task name and click Select to view details of the provisioning task.
  4. Click Properties to view the provisioning template properties.
  5. Expand a template section and click an action to view details of the action's deployment.

NOTE: To get the current status of a template that is in the process of executing, click the Refresh button to update the history status.

Cleaning up the provisioning history

You can specify how many days of provisioning history that you want to keep. The default is to keep all of it. If you enable this option, the provisioning history database data older than the number of days you specified will be deleted. Deleted provisioning data won't include items that are part of a task that's visible in the Scheduled tasks window.

To clean up the provisioning history
  1. Click Tools > Provisioning > OS provisioning.
  2. Under the Tools toolbar menu, select Provisioning settings.
  3. Select Automatically cleanup provisioning history.
  4. Enter the number of days that you want to keep.
  5. Click OK.
