Thanks,

I sort of knew this but wasn't sure completely sure when one can add the
kopts/kmeta options (profile/system/??).
Any time. Should you hack the files in /var/lib/cobbler manually (not recommended now that "edit" exists) versus using the edit commands, you'd have to run "cobbler sync" to make updates.

As it standards, "cobbler sync" still needs to be run after editing the kickstart files or changing /var/lib/cobbler/settings, but otherwise the needs for running that command have been greatly reduced.
The addition of the edit
command is a nice touch btw.

Thanks!

the best way to do the following:
1. Add serial console settings to this file in order to have them

2. Have the serial console setting only apply to server
installations,
not workstation installations?
(1) To do this across the board, you just edit
/var/lib/cobbler/settings ... though it sounds like you have something
better in mind by (2).

(2)   To do this to just some machines, it looks something like
this...
When adding a cobbler profile, do something like this:

        cobbler profile add --name=serverprofilename
--distro=distroname
--kopts="console=ttyS0,57600"

And for the workstation profile, don't add the same "--kopts"...

        cobbler profile add --name=workstationprofilename
--distro=distroname

If you already have profiles you like defined, cobbler allows for
editing now, so you can tweak an existing profile to add the serial
console magic...

        cobbler profile edit --name=serverprofilename
--kopts="console=ttyS0,57600"

So, any time you provision based on the "serverprofilename" profile,
you'll get the serial console, and in other cases, you won't...

Hope that helps...

Marc,

  You can have separate "workstation" and "server" profiles and, for
each,
you can specify different --kopts settings.  For instance, to enable
serial
console redirection on server profile:

cobbler profile add --name=servers ... --kopts="<other options>
console=ttyS0,9600n8" ...

--A.
