Introduction:

CA's Software Management solution consists of two main components, the Packager and the Installer. The Packager packages software and data into products. These products must be registered in the Software Package Library, from where you distribute and install them on target computers in your network. The Installer must be installed on the target computers, where it provides facilities for an unattended installation and removal of software products.

 

Packaging Computer Restrictions:

Only the operating system software with service packs and the Packager for Windows must be installed on the Packaging Computer. If you require an application other than the operating system on the Packaging Computer, you must install that application on both the Packaging Computer and the target computers.

Violations of this rule may corrupt the installation of the SXP product on a target computer.
