The following procedure describes how to copy a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 9 Service Pack (SP) OS distribution to the management server. To copy an SLES SP distribution, you must first copy the base distribution, then add the SP to it. Although the specific example below illustrates SP1, the same process applies to all SLES 9 SP numbers.
Move any file systems off the /mnt mount point.
Copy the SLES 9 distribution.
Use a command similar to the following.
# n1sh create os sles9u1 file /directory/SLES-9-i386-RC5-CD1.iso,/directory/SLES-9-i386-RC5-CD2.iso, /directory/SLES-9-i386-RC5-CD3.iso,/directory/SLES-9-i386-RC5-CD4.iso, /directory/SLES-9-i386-RC5-CD5.iso,/directory/SLES-9-i386-RC5-CD6.iso
Wait for the Create OS command to complete before going to the next step.
Copy the SLES 9 SP distribution:
When you add the update, use the same OS profile name as you used in the previous step.
Type a command similar to the following. This example uses SLES 9 SP1. Replace file names as appropriate for other service packs, such as SP2 and SP3.
# n1sh create os sles9u1 file /directory/SLES-9-SP-1-i386-RC5-CD1.iso,/directory/SLES9/SLES-9-SP-1-i386-RC5-CD2.iso, /directory/SLES-9-SP-1-i386-RC5-CD3.iso
Verify that the OS distribution was copied.
N1-ok> show os all
The OS distribution appears in the output.
