NAME

       systemimager-rsyncd.conf - the rsyncd.conf file associated with
       SystemImager

DESCRIPTION

       SystemImager uses rsync running as a daemon on the Image Server in
       order to function.  The rsyncd.conf file is very similar to a vanilla
       rsyncd.conf file, however certain modules are required for SystemImager
       to properly function.

       This file is automatically generated by the mkrsyncd_conf command from
       stub files in /etc/systemimager/rsync_stubs.  Do not make any changes
       to this file directly.  Instead, create an appropriate file in
       /etc/systemimager/rsync_stubs, as described by the mkrsyncd_conf man
       page.

REQUIRED STANZAS

       The following stanzas are required in this file for it to function
       properly.

         list = yes
         timeout = 600
         dont compress = *.gz *.tgz *.zip *.Z *.ZIP *.bz2 *.deb *.rpm *.dbf
         uid = root
         gid = root
         use chroot = yes
         log file = /var/log/systemimager/rsyncd

       The ’dont compress’ stanza may include other types of files as well.
       If you have a list of file extensions that you believe should be
       included please send them to systemimager-devel@lists.sourceforge.net.

REQUIRED MODULES

       SystemImager uses the concept of rsync modules very heavily for image
       propagation.  The following modules are required for SystemImager to
       function properly.

       [scripts]
           The scripts module must be defined so that the autoinstall clients
           can fetch their autoinstall scripts during install.  The path for
           scripts should be set to the same value as AUTOINSTALL_SCRIPT_DIR
           is set to in systemimager.conf.

       [boot]
           The boot module, must be setup for the autoinstall process to work
           properly.  The path for boot should be AUTOINSTALL_BOOT_DIR
           followed by the specific boot directory.  For example:

             [boot]
             path = /usr/local/share/systemimager/boot

       [$IMAGENAME]
           In addition to the two required modules specified about, there also
           needs to be a module for every image that you want available for
           installation from your Image Server.  The path entry for the image
           should be DEFAULT_IMAGE_DIR from the systemimager.conf file, with
           the image’s directory appended to the end.  For example:

             [rh71image]
             path = /var/lib/systemimager/images/rh71image

             [deb22image]
             path = /var/lib/systemimager/images/deb22image

             [mdk81image]
             path = /var/lib/systemimager/images/mdk81image

BUGS

       When this file is autogenerated, it should take into account
       customizations to systemimager.conf, and the autoinstallscripts, so
       that there is no unique information in this file.
