Stocking a data store with a SUSE Linux operating system

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

To stock a data store with SUSE Linux

  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, and you want to stock a data store for SUSE Linux 11, enter the following command:
    mkdir "C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore\suse11_1"
  2. The SUSE installation media can be either a DVD or a set of CDs. Perform the appropriate task for your installation media:
  3. If you are using IIS, you must delete the package.cs file:
    1. In the BMC Server Automation Console, from the Tools menu, choose Property Dictionary.
    2. In the Property Class Navigation panel at left, open the Built-in Property Classes folder, then open the DataStore subfolder.

To copy the SUSE installation files from a DVD

  1. If you have a DVD, create one subdirectory under the directory that you prepared (in this example, suse11_1).
    Name this subdirectory DVD.
  2. Copy the contents of the SUSE product DVD into the newly created DVD directory.

    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 DVD directory. For example, if the DVD directory is located in C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore\suse11_1, and the base directory of the data store is C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore, you would enter suse11_1\DVD.

To copy the SUSE installation files from CDs

  1. If you have a set of CDs, create one subdirectory for each CD under the directory that you prepared (in this example, suse11_1).
    Name the directories CD1, CD2, CD3, and so on.
  2. Change (cd) to the directory that you prepared (in this example, suse11_1).
  3. Copy the entire contents of each SUSE product CD to its corresponding subdirectory.

    Note

    When you use the Configurations window to identify the location of operating system installer packages, ensure that 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 directory is located in C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore\suse11_1, and the base directory of the data store is C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\pxestore, you would enter suse11_1\CD1.
