Severity: 4-Minor


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


Installer cannot start unless you explicitly specify the repository.


14.1.0 clean install.


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.
