4. Creating a Kickstart File

If you plan to perform an unattended installation of Acronis Storage, you can use a kickstart file. A kickstart file is a simple text file containing the information used by the Acronis Storage installer to install and configure your physical server. The format of kickstart files used in Acronis Storage installations is similar to that used to perform unattended installations of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
