    |                                                              |

    |Step 3: Add scripts and configuration to Windows images       |
    | residing in High Scale Low Touch cloud groups.               |
    |                                                              |
    |1. Put the WinImagePreparation.zip file into the Windows      |
    | operating system. You obtain this zip file when uncompressing|
    | IBM SmartCloud Provisioning fixpack 1 tar file.              |
    |2. Extract the content of the WinImagePreparation.zip file    |
    | into a directory of your choice, for example c:\scripts. The |
    | scripts contained into the zip file are used to change       |
    | various registry settings and install scp-cloud-init and     |
    | change_hostname scripts on Windows 2008, Windows 2008 R2 and |
    | Windows 7. If you are using a diffent Windows flavour, see   |
    | the section Manually configuring Windows images.             |
    |3. After you installed IBM SmartCloud Provisioning fixpack 1, |
    | download the following files:                                |
    |http://<workload_deployer_machine>/downloads/cloud-init/      |
    | scp-cloud-init.vbs                                           |
    |http://<workload_deployer_machine>/downloads/cloud-init/      |
    | scp-cloud-init.cmd                                           |
    | and copy them into c:\scripts\Internals                      |
    |4. In Windows Explorer, right-click                           |
    | c:\scripts\Prepare_Windows_Image.cmd file and select Run as  |
    | Administrator. You are prompted to supply the following      |
    | information:                                                 |
    | i. Specify the NTP server host name that these images        |
    |  should use.                                                 |
    | ii. Specify whether the Windows image should use the         |
    |                                                              |
    |  scp_sysprep_manager script, which automates the invocation  |
    |  of the sysprep command when the image is deployed onto a new|
    |  virtual machine. The scp_sysprep_manager script enables you |
    |  to capture a Windows image in the high scale low touch cloud|
    |  provider environment without running the sysprep generalize |
    |  command first.                                              |
    | iii. Specify the default Administrator password, which is    |
    |  stored in the unattend.xml file. This file is later         |
    |  overwritten when the virtual machine is deployed (for       |
    |  example, by the -a parameter to the iaas-deploy-vms command)|
    | iv.   The version number for this image                      |
    |5. After the virtual machine reboots, install any other       |
    | software in this image.                                      |
    |6. Review the contents of the                                 |
    | C:\Windows\System32\sysprep\unattend.xml file.               |
    |7. When you are ready to finalize this image and shut down    |
    | the virtual machine, run the Sysprep_and_Shutdown.cmd script |
    | provided in the WinImagePreparation.zip file.                |
    |                                                              |

    |If you are configuring a Windows image different from         |
    |Windows 2008, Windows 2008R2 or Windows 7, the configuration  |
    |can be done following processing provided at link:            |
