Kickstart installations let us easily script and replicate unattended or semi-unattended installations of Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS. The instructions needed to install the operating system are specified, with a dedicated syntax, inside a Kickstart file which is passed to the Anaconda installer. In this tutorial we will see how to reuse an already existing
LUKS (Linux Unified Keys Setup) container when performing a Kickstart installation: this is something that cannot be achieved just with Kickstart instructions and requires some extra steps.
In this tutorial you will learn:
- How to use an existing LUKS container when performing a Kickstart installation of Fedora, RHEL or CentOS
- How to create and use an updates.img file to be used with the Anaconda installer.
