Altiris scripts VMware ESX Server guest OS installations

Quoting from VNUnet:

Altiris has launched version 6.5 of its Deployment Solution, a tool for deploying operating systems and software across the network.

Deployment Solution, which is available separately or as a component of Altiris’ Client and Server management suites, now offers role- and scope-based security rights through Active Directory groups and key-based client/server authentication.

On the server side, Deployment Solution supports scripted guest operating system installs for VMware ESX; while Deployment Solution for Clients now supports Wise Package Studio technologies for custom installation of applications.

Support has been enhanced for HP thin clients, and there is new support for Neoware’s XP Embedded, Windows CE and Linux thin client terminals.
