software. HP currently has no hardware configurations with more than two cards

reworked to add features and improve usability.
NOTE: Dual-link monitors are NOT supported.

- Includes the following Altiris Software enhancements:
* Supports Altiris Deployment Solution 6.8 SP2.

eliminating the need to manually change the boot order in the BIOS.
* Enables Altiris multi-cast support for finding a Deployment Solution.
* Updates switches to allow multi-cast server probing, server IP address, 
thereby enabling new configuration options.
* Adds a Webmin option to disable the Altiris agent.

and Simplified Chinese.

- Fixes issue where the following key sequences were ignored: Alt+Ctrl+Fn and 
Alt+Ctrl+Keypad keys.
- Changes Num Lock default to On.
- Updates Scroll Lock functionality so it works with all keyboards, including 
international keyboards.
- Provides a "Test Pattern" background choice to help with monitor alignment.
- Updates Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client to accommodate 
multiple domain-names separated by spaces. All extras are ignored, except when 
used as a domain search path.
- Adds the ability to set a domain-search path, even if using DHCP.


1. Download the altirisbwc*.img file to the C:\Program 
Files\Altiris\eXpress\Deployment Server\Images directory on the Altiris Server 
hard drive.

2. Optional: Download and apply the RDeploy patch and/or sample jobs.

3. Set the BIOS -> Boot Order option for each Client to 'boot to network' 
first, if that has not been done already.

4. Optional: Capture partition 5, using the -p5 option, to save any customized 
settings on the Client.

5. Use Altiris DS 6.8 (SP2 or later) to deploy this image to clients.

6. Optional: Copy the /settings/settings*.txt files from the partition 5 image 
from Step 4 to restore the configuration settings. Another alternative for 
preserving settings is to use a browser on another system to connect to Webmin 
on a client (https://myclienthostorip.com:10010). Then go to the Others tab and 
select the System Logs icon and cut-and-paste contents of the settings*.txt 
files. Use pscp to copy these files to other clients after installation of the 
new image. See the "Getting Started Guide" addendum for details.
