Aug 30, 2010

I was wondering if in RHEL5_3 if you can add netgroups to your kickstart file like when you are jumpstarting Solaris boxes? Trying to see if I can have a group of machines use a certain DHCP or DNS server during my kickstart.

General :: Kickstart Red Hat From DVD?

Feb 9, 2011

I learnt that there is a way where we can automate the installation of Red Hat using a kickstart script. However, everywhere they talk about doing that from bootable floppy image. I have a single DVD of Red Hat (RHEL5). Can anyone tell how can I kickstart the installation using the kickstart script, i.e., where do I place the ks.cfg file on the disk and what command should be given at the boot prompt? (Kickstart from DVD and not from any network.)

General :: Use A Kickstart File For Red Hat With No Dhcp Server?

Apr 6, 2009

I'm trying to do a red hat Advanced server 4 update 7 install using a kick start file on the network. The server with the kickstart file and dvd contents is on the same subnet as the server receiving the install. We have done it before in the past just fine using:linux nofb text ks=http://serverip/path at the boot/install screen. After that the ip address info is entered manually and the kickstart does its thing. When doing this with update 7, the install acts like a regular install. When i check the http access logs on the other server, it shows no access from the server receiving the install.I have tried adding an ip address to the install command. Such as:

General :: Unable To Create Boot CD With Kickstart File

Mar 18, 2010

I'm unable to create a linux boot cd with a kickstart file. I have a working kickstart file and a working boot image (tested by booting using the network for the kickstart file), but I can't seem to put them both on the DVD.

Here are the steps I took
1. mount the *.iso file to /mnt/isosetups
2. Recursively copy all the files from /mnt/isosetups to /mnt/bootcd
3. removing /mnt/bootcd/isolinux/
4. running the mkisofx command (used -c to recreate
5. put the new image on a windows box and burned to a dvd using roxio

The result was that I could enter the red hat boot menu but the server couldn't find the boot image on the cd. I could go into more detail about what commands I entered, my environment, what I tested, etc.

General :: Kickstart Installation Fails With Error Failed To Read Rpm Header?

Dec 16, 2010

I am running into a strange problem where kickstart installation fails with Error failed to read Rpm header, This happens when installation starts formatting of disk is also completed some of the rpms installed and then suddenly installer stalls with failed to read rpm header.

I have kept kickstart and install media on same host. I have changed the install media from http/nfs/ftp just to check is there any problem with the media but no luck.

However same installation with the same kickstart file works fine when both install media and ks file is kept on another linux host.

I am using RHEL 4 ,I do checked /var/log/messages it does not give any information on the failure and this started happening recently till that i was using the same server for my linux deployment.

Note: pxe setup, boot server ,install media and ks file all are in same server.
