Downloading and installing System Enablement Packs (SEPs)

System Enablement Packs (SEPs) are collections of system-specific utilities, drivers, and scripts required to support a specific set of machine types.  You can use SEPs to add support for systems that were released after the most current version of the Toolkit.

About this task

For the ServerGuide Scripting Toolkit to support a specific machine type, you must download and install the corresponding SEP. After you have downloaded the SEP, you must install it on the Toolkit source server to be able to create deployments for the supported machine types.


The Scripting Toolkit provides the Altiris_DownloadSEPs.cmdDownloadSEPs.cmd command to download System Enablement Packs (SEPs) for use in creating deployments. The command file is located in the C:\Program Files\Altiris\eXpress\Deployment Server\sgdeploy\SGTKWinPE\Altiris\Altiris_DownloadSEPs.cmdsgshare\sgdeploy\SGTKWinPE directory.
