Computer settings - Windows operating systems earlier than Windows 2008

The Computer Settings tab lets you provide information about users, plug-and-play drivers, software license keys, and localization for Microsoft Windows operating systems earlier than Windows 2008.

Field definitions


Name

The user name.

Organization

Name of the user's organization.

Specify path to $OEM$ directory

Specifies whether the $OEM$ drivers are directly beneath the i386 or amd64 directory or in a different location in the data store.
If you leave Specify path to $OEM$ directory unchecked, you are telling the provisioning process that either your $OEM$ directory and its drivers are already directly beneath the i386 or amd64 directory, or that you plan to use the GUI to copy your drivers to this location.
If you check Specify path to $OEM$ directory, you are telling the provisioning process that your $OEM$ directory is in a different location. Enter this location in the Path to $OEM$ directory field.
For more information, see When to use Specify path to $OEM$ directory.

PnP driver paths

Specifies the location of plug-and-play (PnP) drivers in your data store. To enter paths, do one of the following:

  • Click Browse  and use the driver selection GUI to automatically fill in the PnP driver paths. For information, see Using the driver selection GUI - PnP driver paths.

    Note

    Browsing the data store for the PnP and mass storage drivers has the following requirements:

    • The drivers must be located in the same data store as the rest of the installation files for this system package.
    • There must already exist in the BMC Server Automation environment a server object whose name matches the LOCATION property of the data store instance you selected.
  • Type a semicolon-delimited list of the paths to the directories holding plug-and-play drivers.
    If you specified a path in the Path to $OEM$ directory field, the paths you enter here must be relative to the $OEM$\$1 directory. If you did not specify a path in the Path to $OEM$ directory field, the paths you enter must be relative to the root of the data store.

Mass storage drivers

Specifies the location of mass storage drivers in the data store.
Click Browse and use the driver selection GUI to automatically fill in the mass storage drivers. For information about how to use this GUI, see Using the driver selection GUI - mass storage drivers.

License key

Enter the key to the software license you are using, including all hyphens in the key. Then do one of the following:

  • If the license is granted on a per-server basis, select Per server. For Number of concurrent connections, enter the number of users that can use a license simultaneously. This number must be set higher than 5.
  • If the license is granted on a per-seat basis, select Per seat.
