I have to admit that the cloning interface is a little bit confusing. If
you want to have partitioning/software/bootloader the same as on the
machine you are trying to clone, then you should not check any
checkboxes. (Read the text on the left side carefully, it explains why).

I'm trying to create an autoyast configuration with SLES9 RC1. I've
done some searching and found that the clone function is now refered
to as creating a reference profile.
I've done this, but I'm a bit concerned by the outcome. I selected
Partitioning, Boot Loader and Software under basic resources, but none
of this appears to have taken.
The machine I am doing this on has a minimal install. Yet when I check
Package selection after creating my reference profile it is set to
default, not minimal.
Under partitioning, all I see is
Total of 1 drive
* No specific device configured
I'm also not seeing any configuration information under Network
Ideally, I'm just trying to get to the point where I can do an
auto-deploy, then I'll fiddle with the control file to do things like
LVM, etc. Can anyone advise me on the best way to do this please?
I'm currently trialing SLES against Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3, and
the one thing that RHAS has going for it is that when you install a
machine, a kickstart file is created in the /root directory as part of
the install. So to create a profile for each machine, all you have to
do is install one machine manually, and it's all there for you. Are
there any plans for this in SLES ?
