Extending supported systems

You can add new systems supported by Linux Scripting Toolkit using either the update system list or System Enablement Packs (SEPs).

Follow these steps to complete the Supported Systems task:

  1. From the main menu, click Supported Systems.
  2. Click Update supported systems.
  3. In the first section (to update system list only), select the check box to skip this step, and click Next.
  4. In the second section, about acquiring new SEPs:
    1. Enter a machine type for which to acquire SEPs, for example, 7979.
    2. From the Source Media section, select one of the following sources, and then click Next:
      • Acquire from Lenovo website
      • Acquire from local folder. If you choose this option, provide the path to the local folder. The path is case sensitive.
    The Summary section displays a summary of the chosen options.
  5. Click Finish to begin downloading.
    To view the download process, select Running Tasks from the menu.
  6. When the download is complete, click Supported Systems to view the list of supported systems.
    If you skip the two options, Update System List Only and Acquire new SEPs, no action is taken, and the list of supported systems remains the same.
