Hi Hugh,

Thanks for your input.  I will toy with your idea in my environment.

Thanks again!

Hi Hugh,

Thanks for your feedback.  Our reporting is hoping to be a percentage and
the load time would probably be around 10 mins or so.  I like your idea
about monitoring both anaconda.log and install.log.

Would putting something like "I'm done" in the last line of %post would
ensure that's the last thing that is being executed by anaconda? or that's
just close enough to being the last thing?

Thanks for your valuable opinions.

The scripts that are run from %post are effectively the last thing that happens (that we have any control over).  So you could put another python script or shell script in %post that would contact your monitoring server to indicate completion.

For example, in looking at a machine that just loaded, the last line in anaconda.log is time stamped 12:07:18.  The log files that I create from scripts within %post are timestamped from 12:07 to 12:14.

The next available time to indicate completion would be to drop a "firstboot" style script into the newly installed machine and have it report after the reboot.  After it reports, it could remove/disable itself.
