Basic configuration - Windows

The Basic Config tab lets you provide local information about a Microsoft Windows server, such as its name, workgroup, domain, and user account.

Field Definitions

Computer Name

The unique name that should be assigned to the server. Enter a name or check Auto-generate computer name.

Auto-generate computer name

Check this option to generate a name automatically using the Windows algorithm.
Rather than auto-generate names, you can use the same system package to provision multiple servers and assign a unique name to each server when you apply the system package to the server. See Provisioning multiple servers - tips.

OM Server Name

(Optional) Specifies a different name for this server to display when it appears in the BMC Server Automation Console.
To have the server display its Computer name when it appears in the BMC Server Automation Console, leave the OM Server Name field blank.
If you choose to use a different OM Server Name for this machine, make sure that this new name can be resolved to the IP address of the server.

Administrator password

The local administrator's password. Enter the password. Then confirm your typing by entering the password again in the Confirm password field.

Note

In Windows 2003 system packages, if you use an administrator password that starts with a pound sign (#), enclose the password in double quotation marks (").

Workgroup

Specifies that the server should be part of a workgroup. Select this option and then enter the name of the workgroup in the text box to the right. A workgroup is a group of computers with the same workgroup name.

Windows server domain

Specifies that the server should be part of a domain. Select this option and then enter the name of the domain in the text box to the right. A workgroup is a group of computers with the same workgroup name.

Create a computer account in the domain

Check this option to create an account so the computer can be added to a domain.
If you do not check this option and you are adding a server to a domain, a computer account for the server must already exist in the domain.

User name

The user name for the account you are creating.

Password

The password for the user's computer account. Enter the password and then confirm your typing by entering the password again in the Confirm password field.

When finished, proceed to the Computer settings - Windows 2008 or later tab.
