First question :
I want to install 16 identical clients with PXE boot and autoyast.
I installed one with DVD and tried to clone its setup with autoyast and 'Create Reference Profile'. I expected to get the complete setup including Software, Partitions, Graphics Card, Monitor, Network Devices, Sound etc.
Not so :(
I'm missing Partitioning (says Total of 0 drives), Sound (not configured yet), Network Card (not configured yet) as well as Graphics Card and Monitor.
Parts working are Software, Boot Loader and General Options. Am I missing something ? Note that I did NOT check the Basic Resources checkboxes for Partitioning, Boot Loader and Software so I expected to get an exact copy of settings.
Second question :
Regardless of the problem mentioned above I tried to see wether the network PXE install will work. I successfully managed to setup DHCP, TFTP and NFS and the client is starting to install. Problem is yast in auto install mode asked for manual acception of the setup to start installation. How can I skip this to get a fully automated install without user intervention ?
Thanks for a great setup tool. Hope I can manage to overcome these hurdles to do complete auto installs in the future.
Third question :
Will future versions of SuSE break compatibility of 9.1 configurations for PXE autoinstall ? What are the steps to configure a 9.1 client for autoinstall of 9.2 with the same setup as used for 9.1 ? Is it just adopting config.xml to suit new/different software packages ?
