Kickstart provides a way for users to automate a Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation. Using kickstart, a system administrator can create a single file containing the answers to all the questions that would normally be asked during a typical installation. Once a kickstart file has been generated it can either be included with boot media or made available on the network for easy and consistent configuration of new systems.
This app walks you through the process of creating optimal kickstart files for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, 7 or 8 that are tailored to meet your specific deployment goals. The app gives you options to create very advanced kickstart files with custom filesystem layouts, package selections, network configurations, and installation scripts. A new security option now also allows to deploy systems that are compliant with a security profile, such as OSPP or PCI-DSS. Alternatively, for less advanced configurations, the app will preselect intelligent defaults.
Once you are satisfied with your configuration simply click the Download button and bundle the kickstart file with boot media or deploy it on your network for easy and consistent configuration of new systems.
