I have to install Suse 8.1 on 4 identical Servers. Yesterday I tried the autoinstallation from yast. I installed one machine, and selected the "Clone this machine" from yast/autoinstallation.
But the installation failed, because it was not able to partition the Harddisks correctly. FYI. The machines have two 18GB SCSI-Harddisks, which are also identical (same manufacturer, same series). Hard disk layout should be: fdisk -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 2231 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 1 131 1052226 fd Linux raid autodetect /dev/sda2 * 132 140 72292+ 83 Linux /dev/sda3 141 2231 16795957+ f Win95 Ext'd (LBA) /dev/sda5 141 663 4200966 fd Linux raid autodetect /dev/sda6 664 1186 4200966 fd Linux raid autodetect /dev/sda7 1187 2231 8393931 fd Linux raid autodetect
RAID layout should be four RAID1. md0: sda1/sdb1 md1: sda5/sdb5 md2: sda6/sdb6 md3: sda7/sdb7
I attached three files. clone.xml is the one, yast auto install created. autoinst.xml and autoinst2.xml are changed copies from clone.xml where I tried to fix the partition problem but failed.
Can you help?
