This article documents the remote installation of the FreeBSD operating system when the console of the remote system is unavailable. The main idea behind this article is the result of a collaboration with Martin Matuska <email>mm@FreeBSD.org</email> with valuable input provided by Paweł Jakub Dawidek <email>pjd@FreeBSD.org</email>.
Background
There are many server hosting providers in the world, but very few of them are officially supporting FreeBSD. They usually provide support for a <trademark class="registered">Linux</trademark> distribution to be installed on the servers they offer.
In some cases, these companies will install your preferred <trademark class="registered">Linux</trademark> distribution if you request it. Using this option, we will attempt to install FreeBSD. In other cases, they may offer a rescue system which would be used in an emergency. It is possible to use this for our purposes as well.
This article covers the basic installation and configuration steps required to bootstrap a remote installation of FreeBSD with RAID-1 and <application>ZFS</application> capabilities.
Introduction
This section will summarize the purpose of this article and better explain what is covered herein. The instructions included in this article will benefit those using services provided by colocation facilities not supporting FreeBSD.
As we have mentioned in the <link linkend="background">Background</link> section, many of the reputable server hosting companies provide some kind of rescue system, which is booted from their <acronym>LAN</acronym> and accessible over <application>SSH</application>. They usually provide this support in order to help their customers fix broken operating systems. As this article will explain, it is possible to install FreeBSD with the help of these rescue systems.
The next section of this article will describe how to configure, and build minimalistic FreeBSD on the local machine. That version will eventually be running on the remote machine from a ramdisk, which will allow us to install a complete FreeBSD operating system from an <acronym>FTP</acronym> mirror using the <application>sysinstall</application> utility.
The rest of this article will describe the installation procedure itself, as well as the configuration of the <application>ZFS</application> file system.
