Okay, I’m skipping around through the documentation trying to
get a quick read on how foreman works.
What precisely does “Installation Media” mean? Let me explain.
My kickstart server serves up centos 8 from this directory:
That is to say, that’s where I unpacked the .iso file.
It’s real nice and everybody likes it.
But does foreman expect me to rename that to something like this:
or, does foreman mean that a directory with a name like
the above contains the still packed .iso file itself?
Is kickstart still going to work the way I’m used to? That is,
in the past I’ve always unpacked the .iso file. Does foreman/kickstart
somehow know to unpack the .iso on the fly? I’d rather it didn’t.
I’d rather unpack it myself (just once). Or am I worried about
nothing? I expect I don’t have to have both the .iso and the unpacked
.iso – thus using twice as much space.
