Introduction

From Configuration Management you can schedule a computer to be reinstalled using OS Deployment settings. These settings are required in order to set up a computer to be reinstalled.
A new name for the computer can be specified, and it can be scheduled to occur at a time where it isn’t being used after work hours. If it is more urgent it can be configured to reinstall the computer the next time the CapaInstaller Agent runs.
