Looks like you've had a fun week.
I'm not sure what you mean by "adding systems using variables".
Anyhow, it looks like you've added some junk to your cobbler data
files somehow, and now they aren't formatted correctly. I'm not sure
if you hand edited them or just managed to trick the CLI into adding
things to them, but the easiest way to fix things is...
This will erase your current cobbler configuration and allow you to
start over. You might want to consider keeping backups of
If you think this is something you've managed to do with the CLI and
not by hand-editing the files, you may want to send me a copy of those
files off list and maybe I can figure out what happened to them.
Yes - end of last week was interesting for sure!! Thanks for the many
replies that you sent. To cut a long story short i have pretty much got
things going now so that i can do something along the lines of a
# ./buildbox.sh 00:0C:29:71
7:4D 192.168.10.25 getting-there
on the cobbler box and this will do its magic on the target machines -
So builds, and rebuilds using koan, are so far working great.
I am not sure how i managed to get something into the cobbler config but
it was not hand generated as such, i definately introduced it using the
cobbler system add command however it was part of the --ksmeta that
caused it grief. In the end i hand edited /var/lib/cobbler/systems and
figured out the broken bit enough to be able to remove the system cleanly.
I am still getting to grips but i have the system running and the gui
functional and so far so good -
