Variables in the Transport Profile

Enter these variables in the following format: $(xyz). You can mask the brackets with the “\” character, if required.

The following variables are available:

·        $(cpu)

The CPU name (alphaosf, hp, rm600, rs6000, sun, wnt, as4) This can be important for operating systems in heterogeneous networks.

·        $(cpu2)

This variable contains an acronym for the name of the operating system. The same acronyms as those used for specifying operating-system-specific parameters are used: aix, hp-ux, osf1, sinix, sunos, and wnt.
