Performing a scripted operating system installation

If you do not want to deploy a clone of an existing operating system installation, the Linux Scripting Toolkit provides sample jobs to deploy each of the supported operating systems. Use the following procedure to install a supported operating system using the sample jobs provided.

Before you begin

Before you can install an operating system, the operating system installation files must be available to the source server. See Adding operating system installation files for more information.


  1. Start the Altiris Deployment Solution console.
  2. Navigate to the IBM Scripting Toolkit, Linux Edition 9.6 > Modular Deployment Tools > Step 2 - Operating System Installation > Scripted Operating System Installation folder.
  3. Select the job that corresponds to the operating system you want to install, and run it against the target server.
