Automated Installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux

using kickstart, a system administrator can create a single file (.cfg file) which contains the answers to all the
questions typically asked during an installation. this file can be accessed to the installer (for example RHEL cd/dvd or
rhcectg file in our LAB) to automate installation of RedHat Enterprise Linux.
Steps for kickstart installation

01. Create a kickstart file
- Using system-config-kickstart
- using /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file from a alrady insalled RHEL box


02. Make the Kickstart file available to the Installer
Network servers: FTP, HTTP, NFS
DHCP/TFTP server
USB Disk or CD-ROM
Local hard disk

03. Boot the installer

04. Point the installer to the kickstart file
ks=http://server/dir/file
