1.2.3 Extracting the Contents of the Full Installation ISO Image

To extract the contents of the full Oracle Linux 7 installation ISO image:

  1. Mount the full installation ISO image on a suitable mount point, for example /mnt:

    # mount -t iso9660 -o loop full_image.iso /mnt

  2. Extract the contents of the full installation ISO image.

    Ensure that the command you use extracts the .treeinfo file at the root of the ISO image, for example:

    # cp -a -T mount_dir output_dir

    For example, to extract the ISO image mounted on /mnt to an NFS share at /var/OSimage/OL7:

    # cp -a -T /mnt /var/OSimage/OL7

    For example, to extract the ISO image mounted on /mnt to a web server directory at /var/www/html/OSimage/OL7:

    # cp -a -T /mnt /var/www/html/OSimage/OL7

  3. Unmount the DVD image:

    # umount mount_dir
