In this step, we will provide the OSCW installer with the download source for the ISO file that contains the IGEL OS Creator.

Two methods are available:

  • Configuring the OSCW Installer in Normal Mode: Each target machine downloads the ISO file from the server (UMS) individually. This increases the amount of outgoing traffic from the UMS.
  • Configuring the OSCW Installer in Buddy Mode: This method is recommended if the connection bandwidth of the download source is limited; it ensures a more balanced use of network bandwidth during the distribution of the ISO file to the target machines. First, a group of target machines downloads the ISO file. Then, these machines serve as the download source ("update buddies") for the remaining target machines. As a requirement, all devices must be joined to a Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and be accessible by the same AD user with reading permissions.
