I remember in the jumpstarts AJ talked about taking a scripted install and putting it on a disc for my remote offices that didn't have a full time connection or had really low bandwidth. Does anyone have any clues on how to do this? I've been looking through the peinst directory, I see most of my post install tasks and source cd's there. Some pointers would be very appreciated though.

You could easily copy those folders to the remote box manually. The folder numbers are not important, they just have to be unique. So if a folder "13" exists on both boxes rename the new one to "113" or something so you don't overwrite another script.

You can also export from the Maintenance tab>Export (KBOX Settings: Package Export/Import). The KBOX’s export facility allows for the automatic packaging of various KBOX objects:

DB: Database Backup
BE: Boot Environment
PR: Preinstallation Task
PO: Postinstallation Task
SI: Scripted Installation
IM: Linux-based System Image
KI: K-image System Image
US: User State

The KBOX will package the selected item into a compressed file format and place the “export package” in the RESTORE file share directory of the KBOX accessible at:


This share will hold exported packages with the file extension .PKG and as an example an SI would have the following file name convention:


Each .PKG file will have an associated .XML file by default of the same base file name. The .XML file holds metadata about the package and should be stored/moved together with its complementary .PKG file.

The contents of the restore share will be automatically displayed under the “Import KBOX Packages” section. By selecting an item in the Import list and hitting the ‘Import Selected Items’ button, a new copy of the package will be installed to the KBOX.
