This short video offers step-by-step instructions on how to install MAAS (Metal as a Service) to your machine. Before you start you’ll need:

  • One small server for MAAS and at least one server which can be managed with a BMC.
  • It is recommended to have the MAAS server provide DHCP and DNS on a network the managed machines are connected to.


Metal as a Service (MAAS) gives you automated server provisioning and easy network setup for your physical servers for amazing data centre operational efficiency — on premise, open source and supported.

More tutorial videos coming soon, stay tuned.
