Thread: Inline run autoyast config

    Default Inline run autoyast config

    Hi,

    I'm trying to run a small part of an autoyast install that failed in Leap 15.0, this just consist in creating a directory, as found in documentation here: https://doc.opensuse.org/projects/au...39966594078832:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE files>
    <files xmlns="http://www.suse.com/1.0/yast2ns" xmlns:config="http://www.suse.com/1.0/configns" config:type="list">
        <file>
            <file_owner>root</file_owner>
            <file_path>/tftpboot</file_path> <!-- create directory -->
            <file_permissions>777</file_permissions>
        </file>
    </files>
    Putting above code in /path/to/files.xml for example and running
    Code:
    sudo yast2 ayast_setup setup filename=/path/to/files.xml dopackages="yes"
    command in a terminal, I first tried with just file_path element as it is in documentation then added/removed file_permissions and/or file_owner but I always have following warning and the folder is never created:
    These sections of AutoYaST profile cannot be processed on this system:

    <file/>
    kate
    Maybe they were misspelled or your profile does not contain all the needed YaST packages in <software/> section.
    I then tried it in Leap 15.1 since 15.0 is no more supported, but directory is still not created. Any one knows if there is another way to create "smoothly" a directory with autoyast ? I can do a script but this is ugly if autoyast should be able to do it from its configuration files.

    Thanks

    Question Re: Inline run autoyast config

    @antoinep:

    Does “xmllint” indicate any errors in your AutoYaST control file?

    Does “jing” indicate any errors in your AutoYaST control file? – “jing /usr/share/YaST2/schema/autoyast/rng/profile.rng <control file>”

    @dcurtisfra:

    Thanks a lot for your answer, jing was very helpful.

    For xmllint I did not think to try but opened it with Firefox that usually points out issues, I'll think about xmllint next time, anyway, there was no xml error neither in Firefox not with xmllint.

    As for jing, as previously said it was very helpful, it pointed out that I had forgotten the profile element that must be root, here is the proper file:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE profile>
    <profile xmlns="http://www.suse.com/1.0/yast2ns" xmlns:config="http://www.suse.com/1.0/configns">
        <files config:type="list">
            <file>
                <file_path>/tftpboot</file_path> <!-- create directory -->
                <file_owner>root</file_owner>
                <file_permissions>777</file_permissions>
            </file>
        </files>
    </profile>
    This was because the way our autoyast profile is made is having a main profile.xml with this profile element and other xml files for each relevant elements included, for example:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE profile>
    <profile xmlns="http://www.suse.com/1.0/yast2ns" xmlns:config="http://www.suse.com/1.0/configns" xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude">
        <xi:include href="http://server/autoyast/files.xml"/>
        <xi:include href="http://server/autoyast/services-manager.xml"/>
        <!-- ... -->
    </profile>
    Anyway, even if with proper syntax I have no more error or warning with jing or at yast2 ayast_setup run, it is still not creating the directory.

    With no errors written to the systemd Journal?
    What happens if you run the AutoYaST profile manually? – <https://doc.opensuse.org/projects/au...nstalledSystem>.
    • You may have to get some help from “yast2 ayast_setup longhelp” to setup some debug/trace options on the manual execution.

    I didn't look at systemd Journal, I'll do so, an in fact I am running the profile manually to debug, it, I'll then try again with “yast2 ayast_setup longhelp”.
    Thanks.

    So after some tries:
    • Nothing found in journalctl,
    • There is something in yast2log but I can't see if trying to create a directory, just it cannot change owner and rights (cannot attach file then I put the interesting part here):

    • I also tried giving it a file_location to a folder on the server:
      Code:
      <?xml version="1.0"?>
      <!DOCTYPE profile>
      <profile xmlns="http://www.suse.com/1.0/yast2ns" xmlns:config="http://www.suse.com/1.0/configns">
      <files config:type="list">
          <file>
            <file_location>http://myserver/autoyast/LEAP15_CONF/tftpboot</file_location>
            <file_path>/tftpboot</file_path>
            <file_owner>root</file_owner>
            <file_permissions>777</file_permissions>
          </file>
        </files>
      </profile>
      But it results not in a folder creation but in a html file creation with folder content (empty here).

    I then finally create the folder with a script since the "create directory" thing from autoyast files seems not working.
