[rear-users] recovery scenario

Hello Jeroen,

as we use cobbler (redhat provisioning server) with pxe, the kernel command line was overriden by cobbler.
But now it works after configuration of cobbler.

COPY_AS_IS also works now, I think i had a typo in that, sorry.

There is just one problem left at the moment: I need to run the sed command with a few parameters
before recovering. There is the PRE_RECOVERY_SCRIPT option, but is it also possible to define a command + parameters
in rear that will be run instead of defining a script that then would have to exist on every server?


Best regards

KERNEL_CMDLINE="ip= nm=24"

That should work, although I didn't test it that way. My use case for
it boots in QEMU from kernel and initrd.

COPY_AS_IS should work for this. The problem might be that it's not in
your $PATH in the rescue system.

Otherwise, github issues with -D logfiles are needed to debug this...
