Hi,everyone.

Just want to know if any of you have ever used the wise package studio tool to create a soe (Standard Operating System Environment) file. Now I am not sure if I need to install the wise package studio on the system for which the SOE should be created?

Thanks

Hey Yanchao,
You only have to install the minimal client on the PC you are taking the snapshot from. Make sure your WPS install directory on the server is shared (i.e the Altiris dir.) I've also found that the SOE file is created best when saved locally (I use D: drive) and then copied to a network share and imported from here into the SMDB afterwards.

Hi,Wayne

I have created the SOE successfully by installing network client, thanks for your information, by the way, after the soe is created, it automatically saved to the server shared directory, i can not find an option that can save the file locally. What is the difference to save different place?

Does it not prompt you for a save location? WPS 7 does, perhaps older versions don't...

Either way it doesnt matter if you move the .SOE file to another location, as long as it's in it's final resting place before you import it into the software manager database you'll be fine.

Rob.
