Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0, 14.1.0.1, 14.1.0.2, 14.1.0.3

Opened: Mar 06, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Image2disk command does not automatically detect repository. As a result, installation with image2disk command may not work. Here is an example of the affected image2disk command syntax. switch_root:/# image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense

Impact

Installer cannot start unless you explicitly specify the repository.

Conditions

14.1.0 clean install.

Workaround

Manually specify repository while running image2disk command. For example, following command will start installation with DVD-ROM or USB thumb drive. switch_root:/# image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense /cdserver switch_root:/# image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense /mnt/thumb/<ISO> Or alternatively, simply type 'start', and then interactive software installation will start.
