Agent install first boot script - AIX
The Agent Install/First Boot Script tab lets you specify processes you would like to run after the operating system is installed on the server.
You can use this tab to:
- Choose whether you want to install a BMC Server Automation RSCD agent. An agent must be installed on every server you want to manage using the BMC Server Automation Console or Network Shell.
- Choose whether you want to run a Batch Job. A Batch Job can sequentially run a series of other jobs that install software and perform additional configuration on the server.
- Specify the NIM first boot script you want to run after the operating system is installed. This script runs before any post-install Batch Job that you specify.
