Stocking a data store with a SUSE 9.x operating system

To stock a data store for SUSE Linux 9.x, copy the operating system for SUSE Linux 9.x from installation media to the data store.

To stock a data store with SUSE Linux 9.x

  1. Create a directory in the data store to hold the SUSE operating system installation files. For example, if the root directory of the data store is C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore, enter the following command:
    mkdir "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore\suse90"
  2. Create five subdirectories under the suse90 directory. Name the directories CD1, CD2, CD3, CD4, and CD5.
  3. Copy the contents the SUSE product CDs to those directories as shown in the following table:

    Source

    Destination

    Disk 2

    CD1

    Disk 3

    CD2

    Disk 4

    CD3

    Disk 5

    CD4

    Disk 6

    CD5

    Note

    The source disk number and destination directory number are different.

  4. Copy the boot directory from disc 1 to the same location in the CD1 directory, choosing to overwrite all files.
  5. Copy the yast directory from disc 1 to the same location in the CD1 directory, choosing to overwrite all files.
  6. Copy the suse/i586 directory from disc 1 to the same location in the CD1 directory, choosing to overwrite all files.
  7. Copy the suse/setup/descr directory from disc 1 to the same location in the CD1 directory, choosing to overwrite all files.

    Note

    When you use the Configurations window to identify the location of operating system installer packages, ensure you enter a path relative to the base directory of the data store. The path should include the CD1 directory. For example, if the CD directories are located in C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore\suse90, and the base directory of the data store is C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore, you would enter suse90\CD1.
