Resolution:

NFS server must be active as per OSIM Administrator's Guide list of prerequisites mentioned in page 184:

Requirements for RedHat, SUSE, and Oracle Enterprise Linux OS Images

The requirements for RedHat, SuSE, and Oracle Enterprise Linux OS Images are as follows:

  • An OSIM Image Prepare System (IPS)
  • A Boot Server with an embedded NFS server or an additional external NFS server
  • CDs or DVDs of the operating system (RedHat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server)
  • OSIM boot images such as osinstal.2, osinstal.3, or Linux-based boot image (CentOS 6.3 x64) based on OS Installation version.
    Note: The OSIM IPS does not create new LINUX kernels to include special LINUX drivers. If the installation of the LINUX distribution requires a modified LINUX boot kernel, you must build the kernel outside OSIM, on a LINUX system and then add it to the OSIM image.
