I’d rather avoid creating a DVD and CD drive in the VM if
When you have a Paravirtual DomU, you should remove the CD/DVD drive
after you have installed the system. For ongoing maintenance, especially
if you have several DomUs, this is the easiest way:
Set up an installation server on your DomO.
Setup a software repository on (each of) your DomU(s).
Since you are running OES, you would create one repository for SLES and
one for OES. I have provided links to SLESll documentation but the
procedure is the same for SLES10.
You really should upgrade to the current software releases. OES2 and
SLES10 are no longer supported. An installation server will certainly
help with the upgrades.

We’ll be migrating this server to a chassis sometime this year, but I’m aware it’s getting long in the tooth.
I set up the NFS repo installation server on the phys host, but I seem to have issues getting to the VM to connect. Firewall is off on the VM, and the ports are open on the phys, so it can’t be FW. nfsserver is definitely running on phys host.
I’m going over my syntax again.
The ISOs I’m using are under /Install/ISO, and that’s the directory I pointed to when the repos were created; it created subfolders for each ISO (SLES and OES). Not sure if I have to point to the exact subdir or not, but basically, neither option seemed to work.
I’m getting permissions errors. I have the host wildcard set to simply *, I would think that would allow all servers to connect, but maybe that’s too vague?
