#597 closed System Defect (fixed)

Documentation bug regarding use of netSaveDev in pc-sysinstall.cfg

Reported by: glarkin Owned by: kris
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Installer Version: 8.1
Keywords: documentation Cc: trac-bugs@…

Description

The wiki page that describes how to create an automated installation (http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/Creating_an_Automated_Installation_with_pc-sysinstall#Determine_Which_Variables_you_Wish_to_Customize) states:

netSaveDev= AUTO-DHCP or FreeBSD interface name type of network configuration to enable on the installed system; can set multiple interfaces

As far as I can tell, the phrase "can set multiple interfaces" only applies when the value of netSaveDev (or netDev) is AUTO-DHCP. Looking through the installer scripts, I don't think there's a way to do this when setting static IPs on multiple interfaces.

Did http://trac.pcbsd.org/ticket/598 resolve this or is this a separate issue that still needs fixing?

This bug still needs to be fixed, and some new syntax needs to be documented, based on the changes in #598. I'll submit a patch to the wiki page for review this week.

I didn't see a way to mark a wiki update as pending or a way to extract a diff for posting here before changing the page, so I updated the page with the new documentation. You can review my change here: http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php?title=Creating_an_Automated_Installation_with_pc-sysinstall&action=historysubmit&diff=11504&oldid=11281

The only thing I had a problem with was how to indicate that "netSaveIP_interface name=" should be replaced with an actual interface name like "netSaveIP_em0=". I italicized the "interface name" portion to indicate that it's not a literal, but do you have a different convention for that?

Thanks for the edits! They look good.

In the future, it is safe to make edits directly to the wiki as the editors receive an email containing the edits and can contact the writer if clarification is needed.
