Red Hat :: Kickstart Iso Not Booting - RHEL 6

Mar 11, 2011

I'm trying to create an iso to use for a kickstart installation.

I mounted the Rhel6 boot DVD, copied the files(recursively cp -r /mnt/dvd/ ~/myiso) to a directory ~/myiso

I then placed the ks.cfg on ~/myiso and ~/myiso/isolinux for good measure, as the documentation is not 100% clear on this.

I then try to make an iso out of ~/myiso but no luck in booting so far.

I've tried the following:

mkisofs -o ks.iso -b images/install.img -c isolinux/ -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table isolinux .

Red Hat :: Duplicating A RHEL 5.1 32bit Server On RHEL 5.4 64 Bit

Dec 9, 2009

I have a database server running RHEL 5.1 32 bit that suffered some catastrophic failures about 6 months ago. We were able to patch it back together and keep it running, but now the manufacturing site it supports is going to shut down for two weeks and I would like to replace it permenantly. Does anyone have any guidance for that sort of thing? I'd like to have the new server up and running before hand, basically changing the hostname/ip and restoring the databases only on conversion day. I've done this in the past with HP UX - Red Hat conversions, but this is my first red hat to red hat move. Any advice or shortcuts?I forgot to add the other wrinkle. The new server will be running 64bit linux.

CentOS 5 :: Pirut/yum: RHEL 5.1 - Maintain An Unregistered RHEL Box?

Feb 16, 2010

A client has sent me an RHEL 5.1 box for me to do some work on, but it's not registered with Red Hat. This is causing me problems, because it's a minimal installation, and I need some more dev software.My immediate reaction was to install various bits (emacs, and so on) from my Centos 5(.0) DVD.The base RHEL system only had one (disabled) repo entry,so I added a yum DVD repo entry in yum.conf.d.

This looked good to start with, but it doesn't work. Something in RHEL's pirut/yum/rpm/whatever is getting confused, and can't work out what is/isn't installed.

Question - how do you maintain an unregistered RHEL box? Has RH done something to make life difficult? Is my problem simply that I'm using a Centos 5.0 DVD, instead of Centos 5.1? Am I stuck with downloading lots of rpms from the net and doing everything manually? I really don't want to do that.

Security :: Grub.conf File Has Been Cleared On RHEL V4.7 Server

Mar 26, 2010

I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 7). The server was recently rebooted and wouldn't come up. After some investigation we found that the system would not boot because several files had been zero'd out (not deleted):

* All of these files had a date of March 11, 2010 with a time 03:46
* A zero byte file called /halt was also found with a date of 08:46

We could manually boot to the latest kernel, but none of the startup scripts would run. We analyzed the system looking for any file created on March 11 that were also 0 bytes. Once we had a list, we were able to determine that the system could be recovered without a full blown reinstallation of the OS.

We did a rescue boot from the installation CD, mounted the system volume privately, and edited the grub.conf file. We then brought up the network and copied the needed files from another RHEL v4.7 system. Rebooted the server and check the OS, databases, and apps.

My question is - Has anyone seen this behavior before? I seems like we may have been cracked or at the very least someone has cleared the files needed to recover the system smoothly.

General :: RHEL 5.3 Server - Building Customized Install DVD

Mar 13, 2010

I have 50 identical workstations that are being dropped shipped from the vendor directly to the remote locations. I need to install a identical configuration, including installed packages, scripts and customize configuration onto each of this workstations. I cannot set up a kickstart server to install from remotely because of my organizations security policies. Not to mention that it would be painfully slow. I thought about DD-ing my "Master" build and sending it to the remote sites, but some of the admins are not very Linux savvy. I would really like to build a bootable DVD that would install the cloned Master build from my server to theirs. I was looking for something that would look like Anaconda to the person installing the image. If I could get them through this base install I think it would be easy to document how to change the workstation unique parameters or value. How to accomplished this? BTW, this will be a RHEL 5.3 server install.

Server :: Sunray Install RHEL 5.5 - Wouldn't The Path To The Jre

I've tried a zillion paths. Does java perhaps have to be in a specific location? Wouldn't the path to the jre normally be the ~/jre/bin the utinstall looks like: Enter Java v1.6 (or later) location [/usr/java]: No JRE found at /usr/java

Red Hat / Fedora :: RHEL 6 Change Default Desktop?

Feb 27, 2011

I'm trying to change the desktop to KDE so that it's persistent across boots. I did the usual thing of adding /etc/sysconfig/desktop and adding the appropriate parameters, but for whatever reason, whenever I reboot, it still loads Gnome. Now here's where it gets annoying: I can switch to runlevel 3, type startx, and then it will read /etc/sysconfig/desktop and load KDE properly. I've been banging my head against a wall over this one. Where is the call made to start gdm? I think I'll probably wind up changing the default runlevel to 3, but I'm still curious as to why those scripts are not executed on boot.
