Hi Kurt,

I suggest you do two things:

1- in your info file change :

where XX.XX.XX.XX stands for the ftp server ip address.

2- You can either check dierctly by adding
AutoYaST=ftp://XX.XX.XX.XX/autoinst.xml in your current command line .

if your command line is; for example

kernel (nd)/linux install=nfs:// ip=

change it to :

kernel (nd)/linux autoyast=ftp://XX.XX.XX.XX/autoinst.xml
install=nfs:// ip=

where XX.XX.XX.XX stands for the ftp server ip address.

It works on my system.

Best regards,

Damien Selles

[suse-autoinstall] Placing autoinst.xml onto the nfs-server?

Hi all,

normally autoinst.xml resides on the floppy.

In the autoyast docu I found the description of the info file. There is
an entry which seems to describe the location of autoinst.xml file.

I tried to put a line in "info" (which resides in the root on the floppy):


A ftp deamon (vsftpd) is running on the server which allows an anonymous
login. autoinst.xml will be presented in the ftp ano-root directory. I
assume that the same IP-Adress will be used as for the nfs-Server
because there is no field in the info file which allows me to provide a
separate ftp IP-Adresss.

When yast2 tried to locate the autoinst.xml file I get an interactive
dialog which offers me to choose several.

I can type in what I want (nfs, tftp) autoinst.xml will not be found.
nfs is running ok, otherwise yast2 will not go so far.

Who can help me please?

Regards, Kurt
