I am interested to install SLM on a bare-metal via SLM Software
Appliance(self-installing DVD ISO image)
Problem here is that unlike the other Appliances(Xen and VMware based)
this self-installing DVD ISO image does not install on the Machines Hard
Disk, i.e every time a machine reboots we have to configure every thing
again(Appliance IP Address, setting password of root, admin, dbauser,
and have to add and configure all the collectors/connectors required).

Question: is this appliance is suppose to work like as I explained, or
am I missing some thing, i,e this appliance(self-installing DVD ISO
image) could be installed onto machine's hard disk like other
appliances(Xen and VMware)

Any help on this would be highly appreciated as I have to order the
product for our customer.
