Adding a Non-Windows OS Image in Bare Metal Agent
This procedure creates a Non-Windows OS image template in Bare Metal Agent. You must add the OS image template before you can request a PXE boot for the OS image.
You cannot use this procedure to create supported Windows operating systems images. For more information about how to set up Windows OS images, see Adding Windows OS Images.
Before you begin
You must have all resources and requirements in place for each operating system image that you want to install through a Bare Metal Agent PXE boot request.
Copy the OS image(s) to one of the following locations:
Navigate to /opt/infra and run isoExtractor.sh .
The following sample isoExtractor.sh file shows a scenario for an OS image in the Bare Metal Agent directory structure. The image path field contains the location of the VMware image in the /opt/image/ folder.
If you have added an NFS mount point, the image path field would contain the location of the image in the /mnt/external folder. For example, if you want to create a CentOS image that is located in a CentOS folder in an NFS mount point, the image path field would contain /mnt/external/CentOS/image.iso.
When prompted, choose the image category and provide the image location and catalog name.
After the script execution is completed, navigate to /opt/cnsaroot/images/catalogname and confirm that the image is available in that location.
Navigate to /opt/cnsaroot/templates/catalogname and confirm that the PXE configuration templates are available in that location.
To verify that the OS image is created, do the following:
