fai-setup - Setup script for Fully Automatic Installation (FAI)
Fully Automatic Installation (FAI) is used to provide unattended installation of
Debian GNU/Linux operating systems with a very flexible class-based system.
fai-setup is a shell script written for FAI to create the initial NFSROOT
directory, add that directory to the NFS exports configuration file
(/etc/exports), prepare the files as necessary to create the network boot floppy
disk, and create the initial fai user that is used for copying over the installation
logs to a centralized directory on the server. make-fai-nfsroot(8) is called
to create the initial NFS root directory.
fai-setup should be called after each change to /etc/fai/fai.conf.
All options are also passed to make-fai-nfsroot.
Use CFDIR as configuration directory. Default is /etc/fai. You can
also set the environment variable FAI_ETC_DIR.
Expert mode. Do not add entries to /etc/export and do not restart the nfs nserver.
This program is part of FAI (Fully Automatic Installation). See the FAI manual
for more information on how to use fai-setup. The FAI homepage is
