no i do not have the 'os' filed set to 'image' in the nodetype table.
also i do not have the 'arch' field set to 'x86', instead i have it set to
this probably explains why it is not progressing.
just so i understand this correctly, this has been my approach, can you
confirm if i am following the right trial of path.
- first i got my xcat to work, so that i can install an os on baremetal
using pxe boot with kickstart templates.
- second i got the vcl code setup with unoffical-partimage-setup
- third i followed the instructions at
https://cwiki.apache.org/VCL/create-a-linux-base-image.html to capture the
baremetal install of the 'os' on a blade.
back to the partimage plugin:
i read around line number 142:
unless (-r "$installroot/image/$arch/$profile.img" or
-r "$installroot/image/$arch/$profile.gz" or
does the above imply that if my 'profile' in nodetype table is set to
'vcl_rhel_node_template' then i need to have the following file
