6.5 Enabling Remote Configuration in a Kickstart File

Note

The procedure in this section applies if you upload a Kickstart file into a profile.

If you want to be able to deploy configuration files and run commands remotely from the Spacewalk web interface:

  • Include the rhncfg, rhncfg-actions, and rhncfg-client packages for installation.

  • Configure rhn-actions-control to run on the client system in the post-installation shell, for example:

    %post --nochroot
    rhn-actions-control --enable-all
    %end

    For more information, see the rhn-actions-control(8) manual page.
