About Plan Scripts

A Plan Script is one of the building blocks of the Image Streamer appliance and plays an important role in the Deploy and Capture processes. Plan Scripts are guestfish scripts that perform personalization (deployment) or generalization (capture).

Plan Scripts are of three Types:
  • Deploy — Plan Scripts that are used for deployment

  • Capture — Plan Scripts that are used for capture

  • General — Plan Scripts that are used for deployment or capture

Plan Scripts of Type Deploy contain custom attributes that are used to specify server-specific configuration information. A Plan Script must be referenced by an OS Build Plan to use it in a deployment or capture process. You cannot delete a Plan Script that is in use by an OS Build Plan.

Plan Scripts provided by Hewlett Packard Enterprise are read-only. However, you can make a copy and edit them.
