The Reuse Sequence
from Previous Task feature uses a previously defined task sequence in the task
you are currently creating. This feature is useful for upgrade, restart, switch
version, migration, and readdress tasks.
It allows you to reuse a previously configured task sequence as opposed to having to rescript the sequence from scratch.
creation, the task wizard progresses to the sequence pane where a user can
configure the ordering and pause characteristics. If there is a task in the
type, the sequence from that task is presented as the default sequence.
this case, a check box labeled
Configured Run Sequence is visible just above the sequence
table. You can check the check box to use the sequence from the previous task
or leave the check box unchecked to use the default sequence that the system generates.
To be considered a
type, the selected cluster, task type, and nodes in the task must match
exactly. If multiple tasks meet the
criteria, the most recently created task is used and its sequence is presented
as the default to the user.
In the case of an
upgrade task, there is an additional requirement. The type of installation must
be either ISO based or COP based. The COP and ISO installations can be
performed with different sequencing.
