NAME

fai-setup − Setup script for Fully Automatic Installation (FAI)

SYNOPSIS

fai-setup

DESCRIPTION

Fully Automatic Installation (FAI) is used to provide unattended installation of Debian GNU/Linux operating systems with a very flexible class-based system. fai-setup is a shell script written for FAI to create the initial NFSROOT directory, add that directory to the NFS exports configuration file (/etc/exports), prepare the files as necessary to create the network boot floppy disk, and create the initial fai user that is used for copying over the installation logs to a centralized directory on the server. fai-make-nfsroot(8) is called to create the initial NFS root directory.

fai-setup should be called after each change to /etc/fai/fai.conf.

OPTIONS

All options are also passed to fai-make-nfsroot.
−C CFDIR

Use CFDIR as configuration directory. Default is /etc/fai. You can also set the environment variable FAI_ETC_DIR.

−e

Expert mode. Do not add entries to /etc/export and do not restart the nfs nserver.
