We have been Kickstart building systems in our environment for some time now but are transitioning to use Satellite 6 for provisioning.
We are currently doing lots of custom directory creation, permissions, and file copies in the %post section of our existing Kickstart builds.
There does not appear to be a way to just point at an existing Kickstart file and import or build with it like there appeared to be in Satellite 5 documentation I've seen.
I see that I need to create a partition table and then use the PXELinux, provision, finish, and user_data provisioning templates. It looks like I need to split my Kickstart file between these four provisioning templates and the partition table. There doesn't appear to be a way to just extract content from a Kickstart file to populate the templates and partition table.
Everything I am seeing in the documentation talks about using these templates to build but there is nothing I can find on creating custom templates themselves. The provision template has the most code in it and is essentially useless to me.
I have almost no experience with Puppet.
What I am looking for and having absolutely no success finding are very fleshed out practical examples of each of these templates and the partition table so I can figure out what should go in which template and how it should be written.
Unless, of course, there really is some simple way to provision with existing Kickstart files.
