Automating FreeBSD Installations

PXE Booting and install.cfg Demystified

This paper will provide an explanation of the tools involved in performing an automated FreeBSD install and a live demonstration of the process.

FreeBSD's sysinstall provides a powerful and flexible mechanism for automated installs but doesn't get used very often because of a lack of documentation.

Topics covered include:

  • Installation and configuration of isc-dhcpd
  • Setting up a TFTP server
  • Creating a PXE boot installation source
  • Configuration of installation options with install.cfg
