How to create a customized or modified Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6/7/8/9 ISO with kickstart file included in the ISO?
How to include a kickstart file in ISO image and create customized ISO?
In this blog post I will show you how VMware users can automate the installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL 8) using the vmware.vmware_rest.vcenter_vm module and a valid Kickstart file.
For this scenario, we will assume following requirements:
vCenter 7.0.1 or latest with at least one ESXi
RHEL 8 installation DVD
vmware.vmware_rest collection installed with latest version
You cannot configure any advanced storage methods because text mode uses automatic partitioning.
NOTE: The mount point assignments are new for RHEL 8. This allows the user to create their own partitioning before installation, and then to simply assign the mount points.
