You can either disable auto-discovery and pre-register the macs you want to build, or get the macs of your live servers, register them in bsa and set them to ‘provisioned’ so that when they pxe boot into bsa, they will be instructed to localboot.
I've tried using the "Import" function and was able to import the device into BSA. But even though I specified the value for the PM_STATE* property to "Provisioned" in the .csv file (see below). The PM_STATE* property value was set to "Pre-discovered" when I checked the device object. I'm assuming that PM_STATE* is the property you were referring to when you suggested setting the device to provisioned. Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

PM_STATE is a built-in property which users can not directly modify. After the mac address has been imported via the UI you could bulk select and use "set as provisioned" Or you is a blcli command to do the same action.
