When OSIM is used to install or reinstall an operating system (OS), what controls the Desktop and Server Management (DSM) plugins to be installed?



CA Client Automation - All Versions



For an install by the OSIM process only the basic Common Application Framework (CAF) and the Software Delivery Plugin are installed.

In the case of a reinstall, if you have RAC configured to allow it, then the DSM server may automatically distribute the other plugins to the agent.

You may also have policy configured to enforce the install of the other plugins when an agent registers which only has the Software Delivery plugin installed.

If RAC is disabled and there are no other policies configured then the agent will only have the Software Delivery Plugin installed after being built via OSIM.
