but what if the Disk is brand-new? Or if the disk was partitioned with a different way? Then I have to wipe the complete disk to get my partitioning on that disk.
So, I have only to reformat my disk if the partitioning is not as I want it....
Ok, I misunderstood your initial mail. What you are trying to do isn't easily possible AFAIK.
- The brand-new case is pretty simple. In that case, you don't have
to worry about keeping the partition, you just create a complete layout. 2. The case where you have a known layout and just want to keep that one partition is our case, I have attached the relevant snippets of our profile. (You can even decide during install if /scratch should be kept; the machines get the profile snippets via rules.xml.) A similar case is the one where in your known partition layout you resize your existing partitions and then add your permanently-kept partition (I've never done it, but IIRC it's one of the examples in the docs). 3. The hard case is the whatever-existing layout. - I would assume this doesn't work automatically with non-interactive AutoYAST, because the partitioning is only easy to keep if the layout is already known (see attached files). - So if you only have one or a few existing layouts (f.e. they were all created from the same AutoYAST profile(s)) then you should be fine, this is the "easy" (it is a bit of work…) case #2 above. - If you have a large number of existing layouts, this becomes unmanageable and I would assume reinstalling them as case #1 would be easier. But I might be wrong, this is just how I would try to do it. Merging/streamlining/converging the different cases might be beneficial in the long run, if reinstalling and possible downtime is an option. - Another option might be to use the y2confirm boot parameter during AutoYAST install and then resize and add manually (or to do that from the installed system).
we only have two cases:
1. Disk is completley empty or a system without rescue-partition is installed......simply erease the whole disk an prepare it, but now with rescue-partition
2. Disk already has a rescue partition: leave the rescue partition untouched, with the other partitions do what you have to do
But I thin you are right...that couldn't be done by autoyast....
