orchestra-import-isos - sync and import Ubuntu isos into cobbler
orchestra-import-isos is a utility useful to automatically download and import Ubuntu ISOs into cobbler(1). It reads a configuration file /etc/orchestra/import_isos in order to determine: - ARCHIVE - RELEASES - ARCHES - CACHE - KSMIRROR - KSDIR - LOCALE - PRIORITY For each release in RELEASES, and each arch in ARCHES, it will use wget(1) to download the Ubuntu mini.iso for each. The mini.iso is used because it is a small download, and the rest of the installation is performed over the network and packages are cached using squid(8). A loop mount(8) is performed, and "cobbler(1) import" is then executed with the appropriate parameters, in order to update cobbler's knowledge of its available distributions and releases. A cron(8) job typically runs this import-and-sync at 4am on Sundays.
