To trigger automated installations of UEC components, preseed configuration files must be generated which detail all of the installation parameters, and signal must be sent to the target hosts.
- a preseed template
- configuration information about target systems
- a cgi-bin web service for initiating installs
Install the Code
NOTE: This packaging is currently a work in progress, in ppa:uec-provisioning/ppa...
sudo apt-get install uec-provisioning-webui
Customize the Configuration
Add your MAC and IP addresses to the configuration file, /etc/uec-provisioning/hosts.cfg.
sudo vi /etc/uec-provisioning/hosts.cfg
Poweroff the Target Host
Make sure the the target host is configured for WakeOnLan, and then power the host down.
Start the Installation
Point a web browser at the host running the uec-provisioning-webui, such as http://localhost/cgi-bin/uec.py.
Select the host to install. If your desired host is missing in this list, you should configure it properly in /etc/uec-provisioning/hosts.cfg.
Choose the components you want to install on this host. Refer to UEC/Topologies if necessary.
