OSD Bare Metal installation of RHEL server


We have installed RHEL 7.3 server using bare metal OS deployment server. The installation completed successfully but it installed the server in Command Line mode instead of Graphical.

Is there any configuration that I’m missing which will install the server for Graphical use?


@JasonWalker, have you ever gone through this? What can be the work-around for this?

Sorry, never encountered that one.

Any possiblity of installing RHEL server with GUI instead of CLI with BigFix OSD?

Yes, you need to add the gui package to the default Bare Metal profile.
Go to the Manual tab of the profile. Here in the section %packages add the packages you would like to install with @ followed by the package name.
This is the doc reference: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SS63NW_9.5.0/com.ibm.bigfix.lifecycle.doc/Lifecycle/OSD_Users_Guide/c_creating_linux_bm_profiles.html
