Stocking a data store with an Ubuntu operating system

To stock a data store for an Ubuntu operating system, you must store local copies of cerstain Ubuntu files:

  • Copy installer files from the Ubuntu installation media to the data store
  • Copy boot image files from the Ubuntu installation media to the TFTP server

To copy the installation files to the data store

  1. Create a directory in the data store to hold the Ubuntu operating system installation files. For example, Ubuntu12 or Ubuntu14.
  2. Copy the extracted ISO directories from the installation DVD into the <UbuntuRelease> folder. This creates a directory structure similar to the following example:

    Example

    /<UbuntuRelease>/.disk/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/EFI/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/[BOOT]/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/boot/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/dists/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/doc/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/install/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/isolinux/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/pics/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/pool/
    /<UbuntuRelease>/preseed/

To copy the boot image files to the TFTP server

  1. Create an <UbuntuRelease> directory within the X86PC\pxelinux on the TFTP server to hold the boot image files.
    For example, in C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\PXE\tftproot\X86PC\pxelinux\, create an Ubuntu12 or Ubuntu14 directory.
  2. From the install\netboot\ubuntu-installer\amd64 directory in the Ubuntu installation DVD, copy the initrd.gz image file and linux kernel file to the <UbuntuRelease> directory that you created on the TFTP server.
