    This system package is for SuSE 11 SP2 x64 on VMware (bare-metal).


    Instructions for importing the package:

    1. Download the attached zip file
    2. Extract the content to a location accessible by the BSA Console
    3. From the BSA Console, select Depot, right-click and select Import
    4. Browse to the location of the un-zipped folder (example: SUSE 11.2 x64)
    5. Check the box for "Automatically map or create export group"
    6. Click Next twice
    7. Select a location where to place this new package in BSA (default will keep structure of the package as it was exported)
    8. Click Finish


    Once the import has completed, browse to the location of the package in the Depot to confirm the configuration and settings.



    • There are commands defined in the Post-Install Script window which are needed to get the agent to register correctly to the BSA Appserver. Example:

              echo "??HOST_NAME??.??DOMAIN??" > /etc/HOSTNAME

              echo "??IP_ADDRESS?? ??HOST_NAME??.??DOMAIN?? ??HOST_NAME??" >> /etc/hosts

    • It creates an entry in the Provisioning Manager Configuration for SuSE 11.2 x64 with paths defined for the OS installer and agent installers. This can be modified for your environment.
