NAME

osinfo-install-script - generate a script for automated installation  

SYNOPSIS

osinfo-install-script [OPTIONS...] MEDIA-FILE|OS-ID  

DESCRIPTION

Generate a script suitable for performing an automated installation of "MEDIA_FILE" or "OS-ID". "MEDIA_FILE" should be a path to an installer or live media (typically an ISO file). "OS-ID" should be a URI identifying the operating system, or its short ID.

By default a script will be generated for a "JEOS" style install.  

OPTIONS

--profile=NAME
Choose the installation script profile. Defaults to "jeos", but can also be "desktop", or a site specific profile name
--installation-source=NAME
Set the installation source to be used with the installation script. Defaults to "media", but can also be "network".
--config=key=value
Set the configuration parameter "key" to "value".
--config-file=config-file
Set the configurations parameters according to the config-file passed.

Note that use of --config-file is strongly recommended if the user or admin passwords need to be set. Providing passwords directly using --config= is insecure as the password is visible to all processes and users on the same host.
