I have a question regarding what should (or can) be run in the post section in a build configuration.
We've been trying to build a Centos appliance that has certain custom apps installed (from zips) which are then set up via some custom scripts and some ant tasks.
We've not been able to get these to complete from the post section (run ok using shell scripts on the produced appliance.
The question is therefore, is there a limit to what types of tasks you should do in the post section - based on their complexity or the amount of processing they require?
In general - there is no limit, but you need to be aware of a few things.
I advice to execute only required things. If you have some very heavy tasks, consider doing it a first boot or preapre the tasks to be executed faster. Another advice: don't let grow the post section too much - better use the files section, inject scripts and execute them in post section.
