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 using DVD-ROM or USB thumb drive. -- Using a command that does not specify a repository.


You can use either of the following workarounds: -- Manually specify repository while running image2disk command. For example, the following command successfully starts installation with DVD-ROM (/cdserver) or USB thumb drive (/mnt/thumb/<ISO>): switch_root:/# image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense /cdserver switch_root:/# image2disk --format=volumes --nosaveconfig --nosavelicense /mnt/thumb/<ISO> -- At the command line, type 'start', and the interactive software installation starts.
