Pre-machine definition scripts

The Pre-Machine Definition Script tab lets you specify a script to run on the NIM master before the target's machine object is defined in NIM. You can leave this tab empty or specify a script.

All machines to be provisioned must be defined as machine objects in the NIM environment. From the settings you define in the system package, the system package wizard creates the machine definition command that defines the machine object on the NIM master. (You can view this command on the Preview tab.) However, there might be settings you want to make on the machine before its machine object is defined in NIM. For such settings, you can specify a script on this tab.
To specify a script, do one of the following:

  • Type the script in the text box.
  • Type the name of a local property that contains a script, enclosing the property name with double question marks.
  • To select an existing script, click . On the Edit dialog, click Import and select the script. The contents of the script appear in the text box. To add to the script, you can type commands or click Properties to reference scripts.
  • Specify a property that references an existing script. Click Select Property to display a drop-down menu of available properties. Select the property that contains the attribute name from the list. For more information, see Inserting a script in a system package.

Proceed to the Pre-bos_inst script tab.
