EU tenho o nim instalado no AIX-5.3 e preciso instalar mey linux suse 10 e o RHEL4) no spot ou lpp_aix resource.
Veja não seria o NIMOL pois o NIMOL é o AIX sendo instalado no LINUX NIM server o que quero fazer é o contrário.
O os_install não está funcional pois quando inserimos a media de DVD ele segue sem problemas , mas durante a instalação ele pede o cd3 ! Sendo que a media do SUSE são apenas 2 DVDs.
Alguém ja instalou o Linux dentro do Nim server com AIX-5.3 ??

Re: Install Linux on NIM with AIX server2007-10-16T22:28:42Z in response to carloseduardo.unixIt is possible to use a NIM Server to install Linux. 1) copy the inst64 (SLES) or the netboot.img (RedHat) in the tftpboot directory. Add a line to /etc/booptab to call the file in tftpboot. make sure that the directory thagt holds the Linux images is exported to the network.
