The Agent Rollout wizard 10 - Post-installation scripts and files

This window allows you to create a script in the BMC Software proprietary Chilli language after the installation of the agent has finished or to add files to the rollout package.

To create post-installation scripts

In this box you add and edit a script to be executed after the rollout of the agent has terminated, and add files to be installed on the remote client. This can be to fine-tune agent settings for a specific computer or to simply add some individual configuration files.


The script must be in the BMC Software proprietary Chilli language and follow all its rules. You can find Information about the Chilli programming language in the Chilli manual which is delivered with the Client Management software.

  1. To create a post-installation script enter it into the following box.
  2. After you finish the script and click the Next button, the agent tries to compile the script to verify it is correct. If it is not correct, an error message appears.
