Added More Profiles

The default kickstart configuration file could found under:
/var/lib/cobbler/kickstarts/sample_end.ks, copy it to your own.

$ cp /var/lib/cobbler/kickstarts/sample_end.ks CentOS65Desktop.cfg
$ vim CentOS65Desktop.cfg
# Allow anaconda to partition the system as needed
# autopart
# 1G Swap and remains others to be ext4
part swap --fstype="swap" --size=1024
part / --asprimary --fstype="ext4" --grow --size=1
# Added from here
# End of added

More configurations could be customized.

Fixed IP Address Via DHCP

By adding the configuration in dhcp configuration:

$ sudo vim /etc/cobbler/dhcp.template
     max-lease-time             43200;      
     next-server                $next_server; 

     host ns111 {
         next-server $next_server;
         hardware ethernet 52:54:00:e0:cc:18;

     class "pxeclients" {
$ sudo cobbler sync

Now restart the deployed node, you will easily see the node.

Specify Fixed IP For Host

Add the configration of the node112, then this machine will start with our specified parameters:

# cobbler system add --name=node112 --profile=CentOS6.5-Desktop --mac=52:54:00:92:8c:4d --interface=eth0 --ip-address= --hostname=node112 --gateway= --dns-name=node112

Now bootup the machine, then this computer will have the fixed IP address.


Use Ansible For Administrate The Added Nodes

Install ansible via:

# yum install -y ansible sshpass
# vim /etc/hosts    node112

# mkdir -p ~/Code/Ansible
# cd ~/Code/Ansible
# vim ansible.cfg

# vim hosts

# vim ssh-addkey.yml
    - hosts: all
      sudo: yes
      gather_facts: no
      remote_user: root
      - name: install ssh key
        authorized_key: user=root
                        key="{{ lookup('file', '/root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub') }}" 

# ssh-keyscan>>/root/.ssh/known_hosts
# ansible-playbook ssh-addkey.yml --ask-pass

Now the node112 is under controlled by you.
Take refers to:

Test via:

[root@z_WHServer Ansible]# ansible all -m shell -a "uptime" | success | rc=0 >>
 06:18:59 up  1:32,  2 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

In following parts we will try to deploy Cloudstack using playbook.
