Auto-Provisioning Templates

Describes the Installer auto-provisioning templates.

Auto-provisioning templates let you select from different provisioning options to address a range of computing requirements. Each template provides a different mix of services and capabilities. You can select the template you need when installing using the Installer web-based interface or Installer Stanzas

Installer 1.14 provided the following auto-provisioning templates:
