creating and using a dedicated (centos+cpanel+firewall etc...) template
Posted on 2010-11-29
I know the commands to create vps openvz centos+cpanel+firewall etc... templates, But i didn't know if I could do something similar with dedicated boxes. is it possible to use the same process of creating a vps template and untar/apply the same template to a clean centos 5.5 dedicated machine install and get the same effect?
I spend several hours manually setting up a clean centos+cpanel+firewall+mailscanner etc... dedicated box, where if I could just untar a template after a clean centos install, that would save me so much time. Let me know if it's possible and if so, what commands I would use to tar up the fully configured box correctly for future unconfigured boxes.
