[b]Automation Booting - ADD NEW COMPUTER[/b]
Hi. I'm attempting to deploy a pre-built JOB from Altiris console to a new DELL 1750 Server, with no OS, just the DRAC configured so far.
How to add a new computer account when all I have is the hardware MAC and an IP for the DRAC
DRAC: 000d56FEDE6B (ip: 10.101.69.15)
I'm thinking the console first needs to be introduced to the new computer manually. I will then assign jobs to run on that computer at reboot, namely the Base Server Image linked jobs. I will be using the REMOTE FLOPPY BOOT DRAC feature to provide the image which the server will boot from. (DRAC Floppy Boot is used in place of PXE boot as PXE uses DHCP broadcasts which are not allowed by the VLAN setup since the Altiris server and the Citrix Servers are on separate VLANS.)
Please help. Main question here is how to find and assign the new computer for Altiris so the jobs can run against it.
