Best Practice to consolidate the add-on and RPM files installation into one Package
Sometimes customer have multiple add-ons and RPM files to be installed on the thin client. They maybe feature enhancements, Engineering Specials from development. In addition to use wlx.ini method to install add-ons, we can also use VXCM package to push multiple add-ons and rpms to the thin client and have them installed one shot. Using VXCM package to install add-on can also leverage VXCM DDC (Default Device Configuration) to automatically apply the add-ons to all relevant devices.
Using VXCM package to deploy add-ons are also tracked under VXCM deployed packages record, and doing this way, DDC is able to track what packages have been installed and what are missing.
1. Create the RSP script as the example shown below:
Description=Install SLETC addons
SF "<regroot>/*" "/tmp/"
EX "dos2unix /tmp/update-addons-list"
EX "dos2unix /tmp/install-sletc-addons.sh"
EX "/bin/bash /tmp/install-sletc-addons.sh &"
2. Create the directory and file structure as the example shown below, and place all the required rpm files into the folder:
3. Create the 'update-addons-list' file without any file extension as below in the same folder as the rpm files, and the file looks like below, changing the UPDATEADDONSLIST+= line as you need.
# Specify list of addons to be updated preferably in order in which you wish to install
# Do not modify below line
# Specify each addon full name in separate line, with leading one space enclosed inside quotes, as shown in below example
# Lets say you wan't to install following two addons
# abcd-xyz-1.1.1.sletc11sp1.rpm and aaaa-xxxx-2.2.2.sletc11sp1.rpm
