installing extra packages in xcat kickstart #pxe #openhpc


Jesse Stacey
 

Has anyone had any luck adding extra rpm's to the xcat kickstart install? I was able to add kernel-devel without an issue by adding it to /opt/xcat/share/xcat/install/centos/compute.centos7.pkglist  but if I add other packages outside the base repo, it breaks kickstart. Here is an lsdef of my osimage attributes:



Notice how xcat has a "otherpkgdir=" that doesn't exist? Anyways, I thought I'd try this yumdownload with resolving dependencies to put the packages I need in place:
yum install --downloadonly --downloaddir=/install/centos7.6/x86_64/Packages nano screen gdisk ipa-client htop mdadm
Then I can just add the package name to :

vi /opt/xcat/share/xcat/install/centos/compute.centos7.pkglist
Can I get away with doing this without adding epel-release.repo to the installer, or is there a more official way of going about this?

Thanks for your suggestions :)

Jesse I’m looking forward at this topic, because I’m interested too.

In the past this thread happened in this list:

I think it may be related, if not sorry for messing things up.

You have to create the other packagedir and otherpkglist if you want to use them.

Also, with RPMs that are within the base distro, you don't need to use that mechanism.

You can just edit the template file that's being used, and add the package there.

I do that with many RPMs like mlocate, lsof, etc.

I use the otherpkg function for things like CUDA and the OpenHPC packages and Dell OpenManage that are NOT in the base distro.

Hope that helps.

I think you replied just as I found the solution in the xcat docs. Thanks!

Also,

one note I forgot to mention about that....

If you use the template and install packages from the base distro, that happens during the initial kickstart of the machine.

If you use the otherpkg method, that installs them AFTER install, during the first boot.

It has made the post scripting a little interesting.

I wrote a script that configures openhpc things, but the first thing it does is sleep until those RPMs are installed.

Oh I'm going to have to try doing some post install scripting too then, this all sounds very similar to what I had to for my older Rocks clusters. I'm actually running alot of bash "psh compute" post install scripts on my nodes after they kickstart, mostly for setting up ipa-client-install, hpe-intel-opa.repo (omnipath repository) also ZFS BeeGFS install scripts / fstab, systemctl enable slurmd, mdadm raid0 swap, etc.

Will be a complex post install script, especially if ipa-client-install asks for password authentication.

Take a look on my thread about FreeIPA. It’s the removing BIND from xCAT. This question is there.
