Streamlining Provisioning Process

We are currently in the process of incorporating a XavierNX into a production system. This system tends to be closed with good reason, but on occasion we’ll need to re-provision the computers. To that end, the current process of loading up an SD card or having to have a separate host computer dedicated to the install is a bit cumbersome. Have any folks used a standard Ubuntu 18.04 starting point and successfully set up the L4T and Jetpack on top of that? Or are there some well documented provisioning processes out there folks are using “in the field”? Note that we use ansible to provision all other computers in our system so it would be preferred to be also be able to ansible-ize this process.

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.
Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one.


Do you mean you want to install the jetpack without any host?

Yes, I guess I’m just curious if we could follow a more standardized Ubuntu 18.04 install and then install the Jetpack on top of it. We use ansible to provision computers on a robot and swapping SD cards on this robot is going to be less than ideal.
