Using ISO files on shared drive rather than CDs
I'm trying to build a redhat linux server via VMWware. We have ISO files for RHEL5 disks 1-6 in a shared directory on a server. We also have kickstart files available via http on another server. However, some networking issues are preventing us from accessing the kickstart server.
The VM server can get to the server that has the ISO files and is using the ISO files from disk 1 to boot the system. But then as it tries to build the OS, it wants the additional CDs. Is there a way to specify that I want it to use the iso files on the server, rather than CDs? The VMWare client gives me an option before I power on the server for the boot iso in the CD drive. But I think the only way that I can modify this is to power down the server and power it back up again.
