remote vnc-installs



Here's the steps I took to reinstall the serverbeach servers:

0. make sure the hosts ip is allowed to access the repos on
infrastructure. and make sure puppet allows the host to connect to its
fileserver - in the fileserver.conf file in cvs

1. login to existing system as root
2. run:
 urlgrabber \
http://infrastructure.fedoraproject.org/rhel/RHEL5-x86_64/images/pxeboot/vmlinuz \ /boot/vmlinuz-install

urlgrabber \
http://infrastructure.fedoraproject.org/rhel/RHEL5-x86_64/images/pxeboot/initrd.img \ /boot/initrd-install.img


3. run this command +/- ip address changes and path changes for the
kickstart config

 grubby --add-kernel=/boot/vmlinuz-install \
--args="ks=http://skvidal.fedorapeople.org/hidden/sb1.ks lang= \
devfs=nomount ksdevice=link selinux=0 ip=64.34.163.94 \
gateway=64.34.163.65 netmask=255.255.255.192 \
dns=64.34.160.92,64.34.160.76" --title="install el5" \
--initrd=/boot/initrd-install.img 

4. run 'grub' and type:
  savedefault --default=0 --once
  quit

5. reboot the system. Watch it via ping, when it starts pinging again
after the install run:

vncview hostip:1

type in the vnc password - in this case 'vncinstall'


That's it.
