Computer settings - SUSE Linux

The Computer Settings tab lets you provide information about peripheral devices and localization settings.

Field definitions




Select the keyboard layout type that you want to be the system default. For example, in the United States you would probably select us.


Select a type of mouse that you want to use with the machine. (This setting is not available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.)

Time zone

Do either of the following:

  • Select a time zone from the drop-down list.
  • Check Use Custom TimeZone and type a time zone in the text box.

Important: BMC Server Automation does not support the TZ environment variable to set time zone. Functioning of BMC Server Automation might be impacted by this variable.


Select a language option from the drop-down list. For example, in the United States, select English (USA).

Key Setup

Red Hat Enterprise Linux
(v 5, 6, 7)

Note: This field is only relevant for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (versions 5, 6, 7)

For Installation Number, do one of the following:

  • Enter the 16-character alpha-numeric key that can be used during the installation process.
  • Click Select Property to display a drop-down menu of available properties. Select the property that contains the installation number.
  • Leave the Installation Number field blank. If you do not enter an installation number (subscription number), the provisioning process installs the core operating system without the packages that require the subscription number. You can install these packages separately when you get the number.

Proceed to the OS components - SUSE Linux tab.
