Environment

NLPOS9 SSP3

Situation

The images Disknetboot and Minimal are normally delivered by NLPOS9 within the following RPMs:

POS_Image-DiskNetboot-Binary2
POS_Image-Minimal-Binary2

Sometimes it is not required to include these images in a PTF or Bugfix.

Resolution

If you need the files for any reason, you can easily create them from scratch with the following commands:

# xscr --prepare --build --image minimal-version --destdir /opt/SLES/POS/image/
# xscr --prepare --build --image disknetboot-version --destdir /opt/SLES/POS/image/

# gzip /opt/SLES/POS/image/initrd-disknetboot-version-date

Additional Information

Please see caption 9.4 Building Images with xscr in the Administration Guide for more information on how to build images.
