CSCUCX: Configure systems before 1st boot

The Question is:

How can I configure Digital TCP/IP service on all the
client workstations from the boot servers before bringing
the client workstation up?

What I want to do is preconfigured all client workstations
beforehand such as IP address, netmask, broadcast address, etc.
When I booted up the client workstations, they'll be
started with TCP/IP service enable. The reason I want to
do is that I have 50 workstations that I want to convert
from a third party TCP/IP software to Digital TCP/IP. I
know for the fact that the third party software could do
the preconfiguration, but I have not figured out how on UCX.

Any idea would be appreciated. Otherwise I would have to
log-in to each of 50 workstations and run UCX$CONFIG to
configure each one of them.

The Answer is:

   See the command parameters that can be passed into the UCX$CONFIG
   command procedure, and consider using a batch job submitted to each
   of the target workstations.  I do not know if this capability is
   documented and supported, nor if it will solve your entire problem.
