Most Valuable Expert 2015
Which generation of DL380? New HP server generations have something called "Intelligent Provisioning". This is a similar tool as the previously provided SmartStart CD, but integrated into the system. You should use that to prepare your server for the OS (setup the RAID array, select the OS etc), and then you can also select the installation source for the OS. Check your manual for how to use intelligent provisioning. I strongly recommend using that rather than doing a manual install, as it will also include the correct drivers management agents and utilities.
