After you set up a data store server, you must stock it with operating system installation files and drivers.

A data store holds several categories of information:

  • Operating system installers necessary for provisioning a server.
  • Files needed to support Microsoft Windows plug-and-play drivers.
  • Files and other information needed to install BMC Server Automation RSCD agents after the operating system is installed.
