    Description

      Goal

      Numerous partners are asking for ways to pre-image servers in some central location before shipping them to an edge site where they can be configured as an OpenShift cluster: OpenShift-based Appliance.

      A number of these cases are a good fit for a solution based on writing an image equivalent to the agent ISO, but without the cluster configuration, to disk at the central location and then configuring and running the installation when the servers reach their final location. (Notably, some others are not a good fit, and will require OpenShift to be fully installed, using the Agent-based installer or another, at the central location.)

      While each partner will require a different image, usually incorporating some of their own software to drive the process as well, some basic building blocks of the image pipeline will be widely shared across partners.

      Interactive Workflow work (OCPBU-132)

      This work must "avoid conflict with the requirements for any future interactive workflow (see Interactive Agent Installer), and build towards it where the requirements coincide. This includes a graphical user interface (future assisted installer consistency).
