Provisioning Status

This section displays all operating system installations that are currently launched. Here you will also find details about the device, selected installation template as well as the latest information on the status of the installation. Notifications on the current status of the installation are updated on an ongoing basis using the appropriate scripts. You can freely delete tasks that have been started. Please keep in mind however that if you remove the installation task when the installation is in progress, the installation will be automatically interrupted, without the possibility to resume it. Once the installation is completed, each task is automatically transferred to the ′Provisioning History′ section.

Provisioning History

Here you can preview all operating system installation tasks that have been started and completed (whether successfully or not). You can also verify the logs that were generated during the installation of the operating system within each entry.
