RFE -- add a useable post install partitioning image backup
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:25:14 EST
Presently Anaconda emits a record of that it initially installs, and the ks.cfg
which it used.
It would be useful to extend this a tiny bit, to help an admin who is careful to
snap a backup post install of the fresh machine, at minimal space cost, by
adding to the end of installation files laid down, something like this:
for f in $installDeviceList
dd if=/dev/$f bs=512 count=1 of=/root/partitioning-$f.img
It then becomes possible to recover more effectively with rescue image.
Is any further information needed to advance this bug? I see it is still in NEW
Someone to do the work. Seriously. (:
Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.
This is easily added to the kickstart file by the local admin who will know the specific hardware and location to back these files up to.
