Specifying Security and Configuration
Information in the /etc/netboot Directory
You specify the security and configuration information by creating
the following files and storing the files in the /etc/netboot directory.
wanboot.conf – This file specifies
the client configuration information for a WAN boot installation.
System configuration file
(system.conf) – This system configuration file
specifies the location of the client's sysidcfg file
and custom JumpStart files.
keystore – This file contains the client's
HMAC SHA1 hashing key, 3DES or AES encryption key, and SSL private key.
truststore – This file contains the
digital certificates of certificate signing authorities that the client should
trust. These trusted certificates instruct the client to trust the server
during the installation.
certstore – This file contains the
client's digital certificate.
The certstore file must be located in the
client ID directory. See Customizing the Scope of the WAN Boot Installation for more information about
subdirectories of the /etc/netboot directory.
For detailed instructions on how to create and store these files, see
the following procedures.
