Default koan patch: reinstall from kickstart file without a cobbler server

Gavin Romig-Koch wrote:

koan patch: reinstall from kickstart file without a cobbler server

This is my first crack at a koan patch to do this, please review it
and consider it for inclusion in koan, I'm happy to make whatever
changes are needed, and fix whatever mistakes I've made.


This patch alters koan to allow it reinstall a machine from a
kickstart file, without the need for a cobbler server. It's a rather
large patch given what it does. Most of the changes are updating koan
not to assume that it is connected to a cobbler server.


If you specify the --kickstart=URL option instead of a --server
option, it will load the kickstart file from the given URL. From the
kickstart file it determines the URL of the install tree, and gets the
install kernel and initrd from within the install tree.


I've applied this with just some very minor modifications. This is in
git now and will be part of 0.6.5, which will likely be released at the
same time we do cobbler 0.8 (the culmination of the development branch
work on 0.7.x)
which should be coming very shortly, after there's a final round of
0.7.X testing*. (Just to avoid confusion I'll probably just bump koan
to 0.8 then as well.)


I've basically changed --kickstart to --no-cobbler to reduce some
confusion, changed some of the output text a bit, and added a section
describing the usage to the manpage.


This is a very neat patch because there are a lot of times people would
want the equivalent of "reinstall this system" and for whatever reason
don't have a Cobbler server, so I expect this will get

a lot of use as people find out about it.

Thanks,

--Michael

* = the two final things I want to explore for Cobbler 0.7.X are VMware
and support for recursive syncs (effectively eliminating most needs of
running "cobbler sync") and deletes.

Hello,

Just for the record, I appreciate that he has been banned.


It is very sad one some gets banned, presumably for the lack of
quality/patient on his effort to collaborate.
It is very sad that someone cares to "record" it, without presenting
anything positive about such record.
It is very sad when other people translate a council advice "ask Marco
Rodrigues to refrain" into a "ban him everywhere", certainly we are getting
back some centuries on the "social being" conscience.


This would lead to the question, what effect a council decision has, if

there are no means to enforce it.
You could propose some methods [1] to the Council, they may be compatible on
your interpretation of the Council's decision.

I just hope collaboration groups do not turn into "gangs" and that the
pressure of the numbers does not change the ethic on the methods.

Ubuntu is "Linux for human beings".

Best regards,

are no means to enforce it.
