Description

It would be great if we could define multiple kickstart/preseed files, and assign them to different hosts and/or operating systems.

No.
Preseed files change a little bit for each release. For example, karmic preseed is slightly different than intrepid or debian.
But currently there is no way to change the preseed for each release.

#3 Updated by Ohad Levy almost 9 years ago

But it is a template after all, I've made a similar solution for RedHat e.g.:

if OSType== "debian" add this line etc

Can you think of use cases where it wont work?

I would really like to keep it simple with one template that works for everyone :)

I find that it would be easier to just input one preseed on the interface, instead of messing with the templates on the filesystem.
Either way, I was not aware I could make it like that. Sounds like a reasonable solution.

while you might be right that multiple templates might be useful, I aim to have as much plug and play as possible, allowing people to start deploying without the need to change the templates at all.

hence - if you have any improvements to the current preseed template, it would be welcomed :)
