Customizing Installations

To customize an installation, customize the installation instructions and the system configuration instructions. Then specify client criteria to match the customized installation and configuration instructions with clients identified by that criteria.

An AI install service includes one or more installation instructions files (AI manifests) and zero or more configuration instructions files (SMF system configuration profiles). Each client uses one and only one AI manifest. Each client can use any number of system configuration profiles. If a client system does not use any configuration profile, then an interactive tool opens on that client at first boot after that client installation to complete the configuration of that client.
