Creating a local install template from scratch¶
Note: This method is now deprecated, please use the new
metalcloud-cli os-template registercommand. For more information visit Adding OS Templates.
In general lines the process is as follows:
- Create os template
- Associate assets (dynamic config files) and other binary files that cannot be pulled from a repo directly (such as grubx86.efi)
- Use variables and secrets and the built-in variables to customize the configuration files.
We provide templates for multiple operating system types as well as metalcloud-cli based scripts which automate their ‘registration’ into the system.
