Info file does not get picked up when installing Xen VM
This document (7007294) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Although the autoinst.xml file in the same directory is picked up and processed by the DomU, the info file is not. It is not even searched for by linuxrc.
The fix for this is included in vm-install-0.4.29-0.3.1, which was released as part of the update for Xen on the 24th of March 2011.
The problem can be worked around by specifying the info file as additional argument in the GUI version of vm-install :
--extra"info=disk:/info" if using the command-line version of vm-install.
An example for a command-line initiated installation that works :
vm-install --name sles11sp1-vm1 --background --para-virt -m 512 -M 1024 --os-type sles11 --source
http://192.168.0.8/sle/sles11sp1x8664/CD1 --nic bridge=br0 --os-settings
/tmp/vm-settings --extra "info=disk:/info"
