@InterceptorF: We are using Angular and thus you need the Angular CLI available. The package.json however should be just a normal npm file. I am using npm on a regular basis with that file. The project is kind of very very early but I am working on implementing the XMLRPC API currently: cobbler/cobbler-web#14
9d0cd7d2: Tat sounds like a lot of trouble. Sorry to hear that Cobbler broke. Do you have an idea what broke it? Maybe a package upgrade or a custom script?

not a problem at all, I had all the configs tracked on a git repo, so it was quite easy to recover the environment

I see its trying to find a signature and coming up with a suse signature. Any ideas on how to remedy this import ?

For this we are currently trying to establish libcobblersignatures. It is not perfect but at least that part of the project should be documented enough so you achieve what you are trying to achieve

I'm looking at doing some provisioning with Cent 9 stream, is there a plan to add the signatures for Cent 9 stream into Cobbler so I can import an ISO?

So I am getting a "[!] Installation Source (Error setting up software source) when I try to install rh8.3 on a new. and it was working a month ago,. Question is; where does cobbler tell me what the valid software source is? Is it in the profile report? If not there where does cobbler expect to get the 'software source' which I assume is the .iso file? I do use http://x.x.x.x/cblr/ and have tried http://x.x.x.x/cobbler as well to BaseOS, AppStream, isolinux... The install lost its way to the "software source".

Can't I edit the signature file and just manually add my information somehow? and if so 'what' is cobbler seeking/ what do I need to add?

So I just upgraded my old Cobbler installation to Fedora 35, and I added some new distros and removed some folders from /var/www/cobbler/distro_mirror/. After removing the folders I reran cobbler sync, it just removed ALL the /var/www/cobbler/* folders. Basically borking my cobbler install.

@andrewm659
I filed a bug report on github.

@InterceptorF
So instead of trying to import the the custom debian kernel I used 'cobbler distro add' instead and it took it. It still is not completing the install but at leaset it gets to a message stating "No root device specified. Boot arguments must include a root= parameter". Not sure where I would add that .

I have a question regarding the use of mkgrub.sh.

I am establishing an AlmaLinux 8.5 Cobbler server to auto install CentOS 7 machines - legacy boot, EFI boot and EFI with Secure Boot enabled each on bare metal and on HyperV.

I can't get grub.0 or grubx64.efi to get past loading the NBP , they just load it and bomb out to the grub> prompt.

I've installed the grub2 modules for the legacy and EFI scenarios - grub2-pc-modules and grub2-efi-x64-modules (efibootmgr is already present and I havent got to shim yet so forget that right now)

mkgrub does make the necessary -o output files (I don't care about other architectures)

My questions are

Should I be running it on a centos7 machine (target) or on the AlmaLinux server? Presently I am running on the AlmaLinux server as I figured that were probably close enough and it appears to be trying to work.

Secondly while the $SYSLINUX dir in the script default is fine , the $GRUB2_MOD_DIR default is not present in AlmaLinux (usr/share/grub2) only /usr/share/grub , however strangely the script as I said does work even so. Should I install some other modules?

Pardon my ignorance. Not a developer, a sysadmin (grey line these days)

Cobbler 3.2.2 from epel-release vanilla btw, with all dnf updates

HI there, I've been pestering devs with more or less correct PRs in the last few days, in the hope to get my own itches scratched in the upcoming 3.3.1 release. So far, so good, they're getting merged or are going to, so they should not be all that bad ;-)
However, since then, I discovered 3.3 lacks a web interface, which is likely a show stopper for me.
and this is also a showstopper for the EPEL maintainer of cobbler
so I have 2 questions:
  • Does the web interface removal impacts the use of the cobbler ansible module ? it makes use of the web API I think
  • is the 3.2 branch going to have more releases ? I would consider backporting some stuff from master to 3.2 if that is the case
Xavier Bachelot
@xavierba
oh, and one last, is there a status on the state of the new web interface for 3.3 somewhere ? I noticed there was no release for it yet.

Sooo regarding the Web Interface... It turns out Cobbler can do more then I can handle on my own. I have put a lot of time in starting to create the XMLRPC API and the API Client in Angular but so far I am not there to present something usable. However feel free to look at the Draft PR I created...
In regard to 3.2.x releases... No I haven't planned anything there because of the huge changes I made on master I personally believe that it is not reasonable to try doing a port. I would love to see more activity in fixing bugs on master so we can finally push out the next 3.3.x release.
Xavier Bachelot
@xavierba
@egotthold:matrix.org So I guess 3.3 is definitely a nogo for me and probably others, until at least http://cobbler_host/cobbler_api is usable. And if 3.2 is frozen and won't see a new release, then I'll have to lobby the EPEL maintainer to include patches, which is less likely to happen if it's not coming from upstream SCM. I do need cobbler to be able to install CentOS 6, 7, 8 and 9 and also to be able to pilot it from ansible. None of the cobbler releases matches both criterion.

"XMLRPC...so far I am not there to present something usable" - am I right to assume this means Terraform won't work with >=v3.3.0
