    AI_FAVORITEHOSTADDRESS and AI_FAVORITEHOSTNAME would add the company server and name to the launch center for users on install. Especially useful for any FMS that is not auto discoverable on the same LAN. If a company has any sort of cloud deployment or complex local deployment, having this for assisted installs would be a great asset. No need to provide users with instructions to add the host. No need to support users who somehow cannot follow the instructions. No need for admin/IT to manage the add of the host to each machine manually.

     

    Possibly an option for allowing the addition of multiple favorite hosts, but at least one would be great.

     

    Security of the connection would be handled and verified as usual.
