{{Person
<p>I have multiple machines that I maintain but I want to use a central system to manage them.</p>
+
|Geoloc=35.9940329, -78.898619
<p>I also maintain several systems in separate partitions on some machines.</p>

<p>The multiple machine problem is managad by building a 'thumb' drive with complete installation scripts:
+
}}
#Boot a standard distribution disk
+
#Mount the 'thumb' drive
+
#Run a script from the 'thumb' drive for that machine and partition to set up the system.<br/>Problems:
+
#*Configuring the network
+
#*Assuring the correct partitions exist
+
#**Some of the partitions will be for 'foreign' systems by microsoft, apple, red hat and so on...
+
#*Creating/Cleaning up the file system on selected partions
+
#**External identification
+
#***Partition labels
+
#***UUIDs
+
#**Internal identification - special files in 'root', starting with 'blank'
+
#***' LABEL=...'
+
#***' UUID=...'
+
#***' DEVICE=...' (must be verified/reset during 'boot')
+
#*Standard mount points and build 'fstab' entries
+
#**from a machine configuration file on the thumb drive
+
#**include an 'own root' symbolic link for consistancy of reference
+
#**an 'onboot' directory tree to maintain access to directories under mount points
+
#*Initial file population - copy selected files from the 'thumb' drive
+
#*'sync' the system to current levels
+
#'chroot' to the newly installed system partition and run more scripts from the 'thumb' drive
+
#*incomplete at this time
+
#NOTE: This process may be interupted/aborted by errors at different points and has to allow for correction/restart.

<p>Multiple system partitions use pieces from the multiple machine solution using 'chroot'.</p>

=== Help building tools ===
+
<p>Can you guys/gals identify hook points where the above outline could make use of the profile system?</p>
+
<p>'''Could the profile system be extended to allow easy configuration for multiple system?'''</p>
