Abstract

To install the IBM OS/2* LAN Requester Version 1.3 on the requesters of a domain, an operator has to sit at each PC with a package of 12 diskettes for approximately two hours. By using Remote Install, the LAN Administrator can install LAN Requester 1.3 on all the requesters in the domain in approximately 30 minutes. The Remote Install uses LDS (LAN Distribution System) as a NETBIOS Transport Application for distributing the Requester 1.3 code to other PCs. All the files needed for running Remote Install are installed on a LDS server. Using the preprocessing Presentation Manager interface of the Remote Install, the LAN Administrator can create map files for the various requesters in a domain. A map file defines the hardware and LAN configuration of each requester. (Image Omitted)

Remote Install LAN Requester 1.3 from Extended Edition 1.3

       To install the IBM OS/2* LAN Requester Version 1.3 on the
requesters of a domain, an operator has to sit at each PC with a
package of 12 diskettes for approximately two hours. By using Remote
Install, the LAN Administrator can install LAN Requester 1.3 on all
the requesters in the domain in approximately 30 minutes.  The Remote
Install uses LDS (LAN Distribution System) as a NETBIOS Transport
Application for distributing the Requester 1.3 code to other PCs.
All the files needed for running Remote Install are installed on a
LDS server.  Using the preprocessing Presentation Manager interface
of the Remote Install, the LAN Administrator can create map files for
the various requesters in a domain.  A map file defines the hardware
and LAN configuration of each requester.

      The Remote Install LAN Requester 1.3 from IBM OS/2 Extended
Edition Version 1.3 allows OS/2 Extended Edition customers to
purchase one OS/2 Extended Edition 1.3 package. They may then
purchase several IBM OS/2 1.3 packages and the remote install
requester package to install the requester from Extended Edition 1.3
onto the IBM OS/2 1.3 Base System. This eliminates purchasing
Extended Edition 1.3 for all customer PCs when all that is needed is
the LAN Requester. The Extended Edition 1.3 Requester may also be
installed on OEM software.
