NAME

uic_attach - attaches a partition or directory to the specified installation environment

SYNOPSIS

uic_attach [−hv] [ −p <mount params> ] <device|dir> [ <environment_path> ]

DESCRIPTION

uic_attach attaches a partition or directory to the specified unified installation environment so that all subsequent creation and customization operations occur in the attached partition or directory.

<device>|<dir> is the device name of the partition containing a valid filesystem to attach to the specified installation environment. It can be also a valid subdirectory in an mounted filesystem if −p "−o bind" is passed to the mount command.

<environment_path> can be omitted if the command is launched from within the environment directory. Otherwise it can be:

-

an absolute path to the environment directory (e.g.: /home/leo/netpoldo-1404-32)

-

a path to the environment directory relative to the current directory

-

a path to the environment directory relative to the default working path (usually /usr/src)

OPTIONS

−h, −−help

shows the help for the command.

−v, −−verbose

increases the verbosity level of the command. If specified more than once, the verbosity level will be increased.

−p, −−mount-params

full set of parameters to pass to the mount command. The set must be quoted in order to be recognized.

EXAMPLES

uic_attach −v −p "−t ext3" /dev/sdc1

attaches the filesystem on /dev/sdc1 to the unified intallation environment in the current directory by passing the parameters -t ext to the mount command and shows verbose output.

uic_attach −vv −p "−o bind" /mnt/disk/testarea
/root/netpoldo/netpoldo-1404-32

attaches the subdirectory /mnt/disk/testarea to the unified installation environemnt in /root/netpoldo/netpoldo-1404-32 by passing the parameters −o bind to the mount command and shows very verbose output.
