Post-install configuration - ESXi 4.1 and 5.0

The Post-Install Configuration tab for ESXi 4.1 and 5.0 system packages lets you enter commands for the post-install section of the Kickstart file.

The ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0 servers are managed by Agentless Managed Objects (AMOs). Therefore, the provisioning process does not install an RSCD agent or specify a Batch Job as part of the post-installation configuration. These options are disabled.

Field definitions

Application Server for BMI callback

For load balancing, you can use different Application Servers for reporting Provision Job completion status. Use these fields to identify the Application Server to which target servers in this job should report their Provision Job completion status:

  • IP address — Enter the IP address of the Application Server or click Select Property to specify a property that contains the value.
  • Port — Accept the default (9831) or enter a different port number.

Post-Install Script

Commands to add to the post-install section of the Kickstart file, which runs once after a server reboots for the first time after an unattended installation of an ESX operating system. Enter the commands or click Select Property to insert a parameter.
Any commands you enter into the post-install script are appended to commands that BMC Server Automation provisioning also inserts in this script.

Proceed to the Local properties - ESXi 4.1 and 5.0 tab.
