(1) To do this across the board, you just edit
/var/lib/cobbler/settings ... though it sounds like you have something
better in mind by (2).
(2) To do this to just some machines, it looks something like this...
When adding a cobbler profile, do something like this:
cobbler profile add --name=serverprofilename --distro=distroname
And for the workstation profile, don't add the same "--kopts"...
cobbler profile add --name=workstationprofilename
If you already have profiles you like defined, cobbler allows for
editing now, so you can tweak an existing profile to add the serial
cobbler profile edit --name=serverprofilename
So, any time you provision based on the "serverprofilename" profile,
you'll get the serial console, and in other cases, you won't...
Hope that helps...
