how to install optional bundle on mksysb restore
Question on bosinst.data as used by mksysb during restore. Have
created 'master' machine with standard products installed.
Created a 'bundle' customization file, listing additional
filesets to be installed for specific machine. Now created
a mksysb. The bundle file is listed in bosinst.data prior to
creating the mksysb. Would like the mksysb restoration to
install the additional bundles as listed in bosinst.data
Explained that my understanding of the bosinst.data file is that
it provides 'answers' to the questions during an installation
(bos install of mksysb install), and allows for no-prompt
According to documentation in the installation guide, it
appears that the bosinst.data can be used when restoring a
system and it should 'install' the additional bundles listed
in the 'bundles=' line.
Tested and determined that by specifying a script for BOSINST_FILE
in image.date (which is created by mkszfile), it is possible to
run a script that will perform installation of a bundle file as
well as other customization.
To install the bundle, the script should perform the following:
mount the filesystem containing the installation images
execute installp command:
installp -Xacgq -d\ -f\
