Letting Ignite/UX gain control of a system

This can be done by either entering:

  bootsys hostname on the Ignite/UX server

OR

   boot lan.server_ip_address install on the client

This process copies a memory only file system (INSTALLFS) and a kernel (INSTALL). If the contents of INSTALLFS need changing (e.g. the IP address of the Ignite/UX server changes), use install_adm to update it. e.g.

 1. instl_adm -d > /tmp/cfg
 2. vi /tmp/cfg
 3. instl_adm -f /tmp/cfg
 4. instl_adm -T checks the syntax
 5. instl_adm -c updates the LIF file

INSTALL and INSTALLFS are in /opt/ignite/boot .

Configuration Files

/var/opt/ignite/INDEX contains the different install configurations that are available for installs. These entries are normally made up of several configuration files, including the default setting for that release of the O/S, custom configurations that override the default and extra software/packages that should also be installed.

Creating Configuration Files

The make_config and manage_index commands can be used to create new configuration files,e.g.

make_config -s /depot_location -c /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_Brelease/location

will take the SD/UX depot at /depot_location from the local server and use it to create a configuration file in /var/opt/ignite/data/etc

manage_index -a -f /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.release/location -c "Title of INDEX entry"

will add an entry for the newly created configuration file to clause “Title of INDEX entry” in /var/opt/ignite/INDEX. Alternatively, the INDEX file can be manually edited.
