Description Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2014-08-20 09:42:59 CEST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #35495 +++
Has already been chosen in d-i
UMC should skip asking for it.
Comment 1 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2014-08-21 18:57:02 CEST
During a fresh installation certain settings are already queries by d-i:
 root-Password: /var/lib/univention-ldap/root-secret
 locale: UCRV locale & locale/default
 location: keyboard-layout in UCRVs xorg/keyboard/options/Xkb{Model,Layout,Variant,Options}
 network: UCRV interfaces/*/*

They should not be queried again by USS when USS is directly invoked by d-i (system/setup/boot/start=false & server/role="" in this case).

In appliance mode (system/setup/boot/start=true) some or all settings may be disabled by the vendor preparing the appliance image, e.g. a cloud-provider may pre-configure and hard-code the network settings; or an app-appliance may want to disable installing additional components.

If a setting is not disabled, the current value should be shown as the current default (as when USS is invoked through the normal UMC and not in USS-boot mode).

Currently we already have (or had with UCS-3) the UCRV system/setup/boot/pages/{black,white}list to disable full pages. With the UCS-4 re-design some previously separate settings appear now on the same page. Therefor we need
1. a possibility to disable certain settings,
2. add new or rename the old UCRVs to reflect the change from page to individual setting.

After that the (new) UCRVs need to be either set by d-i or USS should automatically assume them set when in d-i mode.

Should USS still ask if the setting is disabled but not yet provided?

I think d-i should set the variables and system setup should only check the blacklist UCR variables, see Bug #35685
