    Need to Deploy the image except /U partition…How?



  • @Wayne-Workman : I will try as per your suggestion and update it



  • @Avaryan :Right if it’s possible to exclude from uploading Or exclude during Deploying.

    /U is the individual user DATA partition…it is available in all system… if we need to reloading the image on end user computer, I need to deploy except /U partition.

    There are more elaborate ways of doing this with postinitscripts and postdownloadscripts. It would involve mounting the base directory and modifying /etc/fstab to remove /dev/sda3 and then at the end of imaging, delete all the d3* files and rename all d4* files to d3* files, then rename the d5* files to d4* files. This could all be done during the capture phase.

    I’m not sure what @Avaryan posted would work - there’s the d3* files to attend to, and renaming the other files, and then there’s /etc/fstab to fix. Then there’s the issue of where FOS will put the image files during deploy if a disk is missing.



  • @Satheesh Upload all partitions. Pull back down on another HDD. Delete unwanted partitions, resize, etc… Capture the new image.

    I have no idea if it’s possible to exclude a specific partition from uploading.
