Using Cobbler on Ubuntu

As I mentioned in a previous post, the server team has been working on getting cobbler into shape and usuable in the Ubuntu archive. Well that day has finally happened and cobbler has been accepted into the Ubuntu Archive. if you want to use cobbler in your data center its pretty easy to do:

Install cobbler

sudo apt-get install cobbler cobbler-common python-cobbler cobbler-web

Grab an Ubuntu server Iso

sudo mount -o loop natty-server-amd64.iso /mnt

Configure cobbler

sudo cobbler check

And follow the instructions it gives you. This makes sure that cobbler is configured properly on your server.

Import the ISO

sudo cobbler import --name=profile_name --path=/mnt --breed=ubuntu

And essentially you are ready to deploy Ubuntu Server via netboot. Since it is brand new we users to use this software and would to hear about bugs that you may have encounter. You can file them here.
