Deployment activities

Lenovo Professional Services performs a specific set of activities to help ensure proper deployment of the ThinkAgile SXN products.

The success of the onsite engagement is dependent on the correct planning and prework. See Predeployment requirements for more details.
The onsite installation and configuration activities that Lenovo Professional Services will perform include the following:
  • Review the deployment worksheet that was completed during the predeployment engagement.

  • Verify that the customer network is ready.

  • Verify the as-shipped product configuration.

  • Connect the Top-of-Rack switches to the customer network.

  • Perform basic network configuration to integrate the ThinkAgile SXN rack into the customer environment.

  • Set up Lenovo XClarity Administrator management of the product.

  • Ensure that the product adheres to the ThinkAgile SXN Best Recipe firmware profile.

  • Create credentials for XCC and Prism access.

  • Configure the Prism user interface (e.g., SMTP, Pulse, containers) and license.

  • Register the ThinkAgile SXN product with Nutanix.

  • Verify the product environment, to ensure a successful handover.

  • Provide a knowledge transfer to the customer. This includes basic operational tasks and Support plan.

Lenovo Professional Services will provide information about the configured system, for your records.

The following items are not in the scope of the initial ThinkAgile SXN engagement. Many of these can be handled via other available Professional Services offerings.
  • Installation or configuration of server applications.

  • Advanced hypervisor configuration.

  • Complete administrative or operations training.

  • Data migration from existing storage systems and hypervisor environments.

  • Installation assistance for non-standard hardware components or components not purchased from Lenovo. Note that this activity can affect the support for the product.
