    Windows Service Pack Integration

    Iain Taylor

      on page 209 of the Version 8.1.02 BladelogicBMCInstallation guide there is a section that talks about integrating a service pack into the data store.



      These instructions apply to Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 operating systems only.

      At a minimum, you must be running the Windows 2000 operating system to integrate

      Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 service pack files into the operating system installation files.


      To integrate a service pack into Windows operating system installation files

      1 Create a directory to temporarily hold the service pack files (for example, C:/


      2 Using the Windows service pack CD, extract the files from the service pack. For


      D:/W2ksp2.exe /x

      Where D: is the drive where the service pack CD is mounted.

      3 When prompted for a directory to place the extracted files, enter the directory you

      created in step 1.

      4 After the service pack files are extracted, run the update by using the following


      C:/ExtractedFiles/i386/Update/Update.exe -s:”C:/Program Files/BMC Software/


      Where C:/Program Files/BMC Software/BladeLogic/8.1/PXE/pxestore/win2k is the

      data store directory you created to hold the operating system installation files.



      Is there only a reason that this can only be done for windows 2000 and 2003? would it be possible to do this for a W2K8 build also?



      Thank you in advance
