In this step, we will provide the OSCW installer with the download source for the IGEL OS firmware.

Two methods are available:

  • Configuring the OSCW Installer in Normal Mode: Each target machine downloads the firmware files from the 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 firmware files to the target machines. First, a group of target machines is converted to IGEL OS 11. Then, these machines are configured to serve as buddy update servers for the remaining target machines.
