TITLE: Altiris DS 6.8 SP1 Patch (68SP1RDeployPatch.zip) for Microsoft Windows Altiris VERSION: 6.8 Rev. A DESCRIPTION: This package contains a DS 6.8 SP1 patch for the supported Blade Workstation models and supported operating systems. This patch allows deployment of HP Blade Workstation Client Embedded Operating System images without having to capture the original image with the raw:1 option. It does automatic fix up of alignment on fat partitions. Documentation: - A free Altiris Deployment Solution download is available at: http://Altiris.com/hptc - For DS installation instructions, see: http://Altiris.com/upload/Altiris_hpthinclients_gettingstarted.pdf - For instructions about deploying images, see: http://www.hp.com/support/bwclient_manuals 'Altiris Deployment Server Guide for Blade Workstation Clients' PURPOSE: Routine SOFTPAQ NUMBER: SP35512 SUPERSEDES: None EFFECTIVE DATE: April 4, 2007 CATEGORY: Software SSM SUPPORTED: No PRODUCT TYPE(S): Workstations HARDWARE PRODUCT MODEL(S): HP Compaq Blade Workstation Client: All Models HP dc72 Blade Workstation Client: All Models SOFTWARE PRODUCT(S): None OPERATING SYSTEM(S): HP Blade Workstation Client Embedded OS LANGUAGE(S): Global ENHANCEMENTS: N/A FIXES: Without the patch: After deploying an atirisbwc*.img file, RDeploy returns an "Image processing complete" message, but on reboot, the client shows the following error message: "This is not a bootable disk. Please insert a bootable floppy and press any key to try again." Before this patch, the only workaround was to install the client using a bootable USB key, and then capture the image with: rdeployt -mu -f -raw:1 filename.img Then deploy it with: rdeployt -md -f filename.img However, this method does not allow for preserving configuration settings because raw partitions cannot be resized. This patch resolves this issue. PREREQUISITES: None INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Download the SoftPaq file to the hard drive for the Altiris server. 2. Unzip and extract the .zip file. 3. Replace the rdeploy and rdeployt files in the RDeploy directory for the desired preboot environment(s). For example, for the Linux preboot environment they are installed to default paths: - Replace C:\Program Files\Altiris\eXpress\Deployment Server\Rdeploy\Linux\rdeployt with Rdeploy\Linux\rdeployt from the zip file. 4. From the Start menu, select Altiris, then select Deployment Solution, then select Configuration. - Restart any Sessions, Consoles, or servers that are currently running.
