The same criteria keywords are used for selecting system configuration profiles for an AI client as are used for selecting an AI manifest. See Figure 6, Table 6, Criteria Keywords and Criteria Hierarchy.
More than one system configuration profile can be selected for any particular AI client. No algorithm is needed to narrow the selection to one profile.
If client characteristics match criteria for multiple system configuration profiles, all matching profiles are applied to configure the system. For example, if one criteria specification matches the client's host name and another criteria specification matches the same client's memory size, both profiles are used to configure that AI client.
