  • Linux 1-touch - how to attach response file?
    Posted: 05-06-2019, 6:54 AM


    we are running 1-touch restore with non-interactive option. I'm trying to attach xml file locally but cannot. ISO is mounted correctly, I can see xml file from the command line.

    Response File for Non-Interactive Recovery
    From an ISO File

    Use a program such as ImgBurn to create an ISO file from the exported response file.
    Attach the ISO file as the second CD-ROM device. (Verify that the DVD is attached to the first CD-ROM device as seen by the guest Virtual Machine (VM)).
    When the VM boots up and prompts for the response file, press Alt+F2 to open an alternate terminal.
    Type the command to mount the ISO file:
    #mkdir /iso; mount -oro /dev/sr1 /iso

    Press Alt+F1 to go back to the first terminal.
    Select the local file option and choose the path as "/iso/xml_file_name".


    What should proper local path look like? File is named 1.xml, non of these could be applied.







    Best regards,

    Hi Lukas,

    Can you run the following command and confirm the xml file is identified properly?

    # file /iso/1.xml

    If that looks good, I'd suggest a support case be opened as we'd need to review the logs to determine why this isn't working.

    We could open this file from console so it was good. We switched to NFS share to add xml file and it worked.
