Diskless_***.sh & PXE
« on: March 20, 2012, 09:07:19 am »
Hi all,

Firstly thanks for all for there hard work. I'm up and running!

Secondly, just a quick one. Is it standard practice to have to break out of the GUI and run the Diskless scripts (default/TBZ) or are they meant to run automatically when you run the install script first time around?

I spent ages without any PXE working because there were no images in  /tftpboot/

I eventually got it kind of working having manually added the MD/Orbitor and run the TBZ script. It wasn't untill I deleted that MD/Orbiter (as recommend a number of times) and ran the default diskless script that I got the 'announced to core message' and things ran smoothly.

So is this normal or is my system just out of whack?

Core - IBM X345 server
MD - Dell GX620

Once again, thanks TEAM!

There are wiki's for almost everything.

The new dvd snapshots aim to have everything in place, but until that happens the first step for creating MDs has always been to run /usr/pluto/bin/

That takes a long time. When finished, just plug something in and netboot. Everything is created automagically.
I never quit... I just ping out.
