Attention

The Dell Cloud Manager agent must be installed and running on the servers in the stacks.

If the cloud provider supports passing user data scripts to the launched server to be run during system boot, and the machine image used to launch the server has been configured to accept and run scripts, then you can install the Dell Cloud Manager agent on the servers in the stack using the blueprint template startupScript statement or the ServerWithAgent server type. If not, you will need to pre-install the Dell Cloud Manager agents on machine images and specify those machine images in your blueprint templates.

Refer to the Support Matrix in this document for reference.
