I cannot create a SRT on the BMR Boot server.

I am trying to setup a Bare Metal Restore boot server SRT.  My environment is:

NetBackup master server/master BMR server version 6.5.5 running on a Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 server.  The BMR boot server is the same OS version and BMR version.

When I try to install the OS into the SRT I keep on getting the follow issue:

Select one of the following options:

    1.  Create a new Shared Resource Tree.
    2.  Create a new CD image based Shared Resource Tree.
    3.  Copy an existing Shared Resource Tree to a new location.
    4.  Import a Shared Resource Tree.
    5.  Modify an existing Shared Resource Tree.
    6.  Delete an existing Shared Resource Tree.
    7.  List Shared Resource Trees available on this server.
    8.  Quit.

Enter your selection (1-8) [1] : 1
Enter the name of the SRT to create : OEL5
Enter the description of the new SRT : Base OEL Install 
Enter the desired RedHat level (3/3.0 or 4/4.0 or 5/5.0) [5.0] :
Enter the desired architecture (i686 or x86_64) [x86_64] :
Enter the directory in which to place the new SRT [/export/srt] : /usr/openv/srt
Creating repository to stow files from distribution media.

The following media is required:

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.0 (x86_64) - disc 1 of 5

Please load the media now.

Load media from (? for help) [/dev/cdrom] : /tmp/OEL5    
Extracting files ............................................................... ok.

The following media is required:

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.0 (x86_64) - disc 2 of 5

Please load the media now.

Load media from (? for help) [/tmp/OEL5] :
V-125-380 /tmp/OEL5/.discinfo(4): expected "2", got "1"
The loaded media is not correct ... please try again.


The OS media is on a single DVD and not on a 5 CD set.

I did modify the .discinfo file on the OS DVD to reflect that there is only 1 disk and not 5.  But I am still getting this error.

Here is the what the .discinfo file looks like:

1212029600.609673
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5
x86_64
1
Server/base
Server/RPMS
Server/pixmaps

Do you have any idea now to correct this problem?

Not had a thorough look through it

& the error message displayed is somewhat different, but is this relevant:

Creation of RedHat Enterprise Linux Shared Resource Tree (SRT) using DVD media.
