System Role

A new step during the installation of SUSE Linux allows to quickly adjust several settings proposed for the installation:

  • Default System - Nothing is modified compared to plain installation
  • KVM Virtualization Host - A system with KVM pattern, /home does not get a separate partition
  • Xen Virtualization Host - A system with Xen pattern, /home does not get a separate partition

Defining Roles

System Roles are defined in the control.xml file present in the root of the installation medium. See the control file documentation.

Availability and References

System Roles are implemented in yast2-installation-3.1.174, which will land in the upcoming SLES12-SP2. They were requested in FATE#317481.

Screenshots

In the installation workflow, after the Registration and optional Add-ons, we come to selecting the System Role: system-role-mar14 Then in the next step we can see the effect. It is either the Default System: system-role-mar14-default-red or the KVM Virtualization Host: system-role-mar14-kvm-red
