Performing a scripted deployment

Use tools provided by the Toolkit to run a scripted deployment that configures RAID, installs an operating system, installs the IBM Director Agent, and installs UpdateXpress System Pack updates on the target system.


To perform a scripted deployment, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that the necessary operating system, Director Agent, and UXSP files are properly included in the source tree. See About adding files to the source tree for more information.
  2. Open the Altiris Deployment Solution console and navigate to the IBM ServerGuide Toolkit, Windows Edition 9.6 > Combined Deployment Solutions > Scripted Deployment folder.
  3. From this folder, select the job to deploy the operating system of your choice. Modify the following job variables:
    To install the IBM Director Agent.
    To install UpdateXpress System Pack updates.
    See About customizing sample jobs for more information about configuring job variables.
  4. Run the job against the target server.
