Hello, first apologies if the question has already been answered, I was not able to find anything after searching.
I am in the process of finding an alternative to our CoreOS servers and I am naturally investigating the Fedora CoreOS route.
So far, everything seems to work fine and I appreciate the improvements over CoreOS Ignition . However, I am facing a problem as many of my configurations write files in the
files: section, based on local files. Some of those files are shared in a number of configurations and duplicating the content is not an option.
After reading the documentation Content Moved :: Fedora Docs carefully, I cannot seem to achieve a similar behaviour.
Could you please advise what is the best alternative if this feature has been removed completely ?
Thanks in advance
This is a missing feature we are tracking at https://github.com/coreos/fcct/issues/83 and https://github.com/coreos/fedora-coreos-tracker/issues/375.
I don’t think there is any real blocker stopping it, but so far we haven’t done the design/scoping bits to eventually implement that.
What are the odds that this gets implemented before the deadline of 26th of may ?
That’s a very specific question to which I don’t have an answer, sorry.
In general, if anybody provide any PR for an uncontested feature request, we try to review+merge+release+package within a sane amount of time.
I am not aware of anybody who has started working on it at the moment though. Which also means, it is up for grabbing
Good news. This was merged upstream recently so the next release of fcct should include it: https://github.com/coreos/fcct/pull/99
FCCT 0.6.0 was just released, including support for a
local directive in FCC spec 1.1.0. This spec version requires Ignition 2.3.0 and above, which is available in FCOS
testing and will be in the next FCOS
