smart start scripting toolkit for linux

According to the manual at ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/c-products/servers/management/smartstart/LinuxUserGuide(415597-401).pdf it should be possible to boot the CD that contains the Linux Toolkit image (page 8); but where is this located? The bootable SS only come with a GUI, and the ss-scripting-toolkit-linux-8.50.tar.gz file contains no iso images ???

Bottom of page 9 in the manual you listed explains how to create a toolkit bootable ISO image

Re: smart start scripting toolkit for linux

Thanks Jimmy, but I don't think this is what I need; infact I found that ss-scripting-toolkit-linux-8.50.tar.gz contains a shell script that creates an iso image, the latter ought to contain the SS commands like conrep etc, while the image created per page 9 of the manual appears to me as a generic linux image, right?

Re: smart start scripting toolkit for linux

Looks like they dropped a section from the user guide. Do this before running the makiso command. Copy the contents of the tar file into the linuxbootCD directory




Creating a Toolkit bootable CD requires the following general steps:
1. Create a CD build directory.
2. Create an ISO image to be written to CD.

Creating a CD build directory
1. Create a directory on the Linux workstation:
mkdir ./linuxbootCD

2. Create a subdirectory in which to store boot files:
mkdir ./linuxbootCD/isolinux

3. Copy the necessary boot files to the ./linuxbootCD/isolinux directory:
isolinux.bin (the SYSLINUX binary used for ISO media)
isolinux.cfg (the boot configuration used by isolinux.bin)
initrd.img (the Linux file system)
vmlinuz (the Linux kernel)


If needed, copy additional files to ./linuxbootCD. These files might include Toolkit utilities or scripts, configuration files, or third-party tools.

Re: smart start scripting toolkit for linux

I just ran the mkiso.sh script and it indeed creates the proper bootable ISO image of the toolkit.
