I am trying to automate Ubuntu installations using Cobbler and preseed.
I referred to this officical sample seed file for Ubuntu: https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/installation-guide/example-preseed.txt
I only edited the network related part in this file and now this is my
sample.seed file: http://paste.ubuntu.com/7793361/
I did not edit anything else. My target machine has two NICs:
eth1 is connected to cobbler server through a private network.
After booting the Ubuntu Mini ISO it asks me to manually select between
eth1 and also ask to manually configure ip, netmask and other details as shown here: http://imgur.com/L2IrAmV
However, I have already set all these settings in that preseed file.
I have set my seed file location correctly as
For testing purpose I disabled the second NIC, and only enabled one NIC. Then I manually set the network information. Still Ubuntu tries to use DHCP and says "can not configure network" and halts. Same issue if I use kickstart instead of preseed.
Kindly help to troubleshoot this issue. How can I make Ubuntu to autoselect
eth1 and apply all other networking settings such as IP address, network mask, etc. automatically?
