The Configuration Details wizard panel lets you specify information for an image for booting a target server from local media (CD-ROM, DVD, USB flash drive, iLO, DRAC). Provide information only if you creating an ISO or UFD image.
The following figure shows the Configuration Details wizard panel.
(Optional) Specifies the path to the network.ini file. This file contains the MAC address of each target server and its network details (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, WINS server, and DNS servers). Specify this file if the provisioning environment does not contain a DHCP server.
Application Server IP Address
Specifies the IP address of the Application Server with which the target server communicates.
Application Server Port
Specifies the port that the target server uses to communicate with the Application Server.
Configuration Components for Local Data Store
Specifies the location to which these components (bmiwin.exe, RSCD Agent installer, and operating system drivers) are copied on local media. Select either of the following:
Specifies the path to the bmiwin.exe file to copy the local media. For example: D:\DataStore\bmiwin.exe. Type the path (including the file name) or click Browse to select the file.
RSCD Installer Path
Specifies the path to the RSCD agent installer files to copy to the local media. For example: D:\DataStore\RSCD\rscd_76_x86. Type the path or click Browse to select the directory.
OS Drivers Path
Specifies the path to the operating system driver files you want to copy to the local media. For example: D:\DataStore\Drivers. Type the path or click Browse to select the directory.
If you are using the DHCP server to assign IP addresses (not the network.ini file) and the server fails to assign the network details due to slow initialization of network cards on the target machine, edit the BLAssignNetDetails.vbs file and increase the ATTEMPTS and DELAY values to allow for initialization time. For example, you might increase ATTEMPTS from 2 (the default) to 5 and DELAY from 10 (the default) to 30.
The BLAssignNetDetails.vbs file resides in the /provisioning/winpe subdirectory that you created by unzipping the <version>-provision-files.zip file (which you obtained from within the main product package that you downloaded from the EPD site)..
