C.3. Mirroring a Network Location

If you do not have discs or ISO images for a distribution, you can use cobbler to create an installation server. The cobbler command can fetch the distribution over the network as part of the import process.

Locate the distribution on the network. The location may be on the local network or reached at a remote site via FTP, HTTP, or rsync protocols. Note the URI, which will be in one of the following forms:

  • arch /os

  • arch /os

  • rsync:// arch /os
