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 sample jobs. 3. Optional: Set the BIOS -> Boot Order option for each Client to 'boot to network' first. The alternative is to use the netbooton/netbootoff sample jobs to trigger boot order remotely from the Altiris server. 4. Optional: Capture partition 5, using the -p5 option, to save any customized settings on the Client. An alternative (cleaner) method is to use the DeployKeepSettings job, which saves and restores specific settings files instead of the whole partition. 5. Use Altiris DS 6.8 (SP2 or later), or Rapid Deployment Pack 3.70, to deploy this image to clients. 6. Optional: Copy the /settings/settings*.txt files from 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:10001), then go to the Others tab and select the System Logs icon, and cut and paste the contents of the settings*.txt files. Use pscp to copy these files to other clients after the installation of the new image. See the "Getting Started Guide" addendum for details.
