Thread: full-virtualization create and install with autoyast

    Question full-virtualization create and install with autoyast

    I am using SLES 11 plus Xen to create VM. previously, I created para-virtualization VM with autoyast to install SLES 11 in guest os automatically. configuration file is as below.

    extra=" install=hd:/dev/xvdb autoyast=device://xvdp/autoinst.xml "
    disk=[ 'phy:/dev/sda3,xvda,w', 'file:/opt/nsmbuild/linux/3_19089-CNA10802_2_Ux_C.iso,xvdb,r', 'file:/opt/HA/tmp/autoyast.sles11_sp2,xvdp,r', 'file:/opt/HA/patch/fixorg,xvdc,r', ]

    in extra field, autoinst.xml is specified and installation can be executed automatically.

    now, our feature need to use full-virtualization VM. but I check that full-virtualization VM can not support autoyast in installation. configuration file as below
    disk=[ 'phy:/dev/sda3,hda,w', 'file:/var/nsmbuild/linux/3_19089-CNA10802_2_Ux_C.iso,hdb:cdrom,r', 'file:/opt/HA/tmp/autoyast.sles11_sp2,hdp,r']

    if a add extra field like para one. VM can not be created.

    please help to solve this problem. my requirement is let full-virtualization VM creation supports autoyast in installation.
