I’m trying to provision new device by autoinstallation in AutoYaST XML profile with github SUSE/manager-build-profiles/AutoYaST on SUMA4.2,
I can boot bare-metal on KVN/QEMU from bios in init ramdisk, but shows no filesystem could mount root and kernel panic in VM console, can you please kindly help to solve this issue.? or another template for reference in detail?
to do an Installation with PXE you need follow thinks configure on SUMA:
DHCP with correct entry e.g. “nextserver” (I think its working allready)
An clone of the SUSE original channel (original SUSE Channel is possible but not recomended, if you want to administrate you patch level) Which one you want to use? How is you channel name?
an distribution for SLES15SP3 , GUI → System → autoinstallation → distribution (I think you have one)
the customized Autoyast Profile (this create for you an cobbler profile)
did you use the autoyast template in an exact copy?
You have to change some thinks like the addons section? with correkt SUMA domain name and you configure disto?
I think your error is may regarding your missing porile and autoyast file. So did you add your system, with the cobler command “cobbler system add …” ?
Remember, that this is an profile on github, not the final autoyast file for you client.
you have to generate it by using the “cobbler system add…” command
I explain it a little bit in the old post here:
Did you have done all these steps? If not which one is missing or unclear?
Thank you for your sharing, I ran your command and output as below.
Well, the key of our question is on the XML file by autoyast. Yes, I copied the exact clone XML to modify the add-on items and save, and load the profile before the installer show, so, I have no idea what is going on for now ?
can you provide me you autoyast file? may your addon links are incorrect. Be carefull with capital letters, all names are lowercase. You have to wrote the “description” in of the subchannels, not the names. So klick on the subchannel to view the description or entrer follow command for a better overview
nice to hear, that it looks better now. So your Installation works fine now?
May you are a beginner with SUMA, you may find this explaniation usefull on youtube, its about content lifecycle. It is allready a good idea to make development, test - and production channels.
