DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the mkautoinstallcd command.

       mkautoinstallcd creates an iso image which  can  be  used  to  boot  an
       autoinstall client and initiate an autoinstall.

OPTIONS

       A summary of options is included below.

       -help  Show summary of options

       -version
              Display version and copyright information.

       -arch ARCH
              Create  a  CD image for autoinstallclients of this architecture.
              Defaults  to   the   architecture   of   the   host   on   which
              mkautoinstallcd is being run.

       -out-file PATH
              Name  of  the file that will hold the resulting ISO image.  (Not
              to worry, this will only be about 3 MB in size.)

       -flavor FLAVOR
              The flavor of the boot package to use.  If this  option  is  not
              specified,  you  will  be  asked  to  choose  a  flavor from the
              available list interactively.

       -initrd PATH
              Specify an alternate initial ramdisk to  use.   This  is  rarely
              useful,  but may be necessary in some cases (e.g. needing to add
              more special files in /dev).  See the  SystemImager  manual  for
              instructions on creating a custom initial ramdisk.

       -append STRING
              This  option  allows  you  to  pass  options  to the autoinstall
              kernel.  For example, to tell the kernel to  use  ttyS3  as  the
              serial console:

              -append "console=ttyS3"

       -quiet Don’t print any output, just provide an appropriate exit code.
