0710b3 MD with HDD install
« on: January 24, 2008, 12:26:54 am »
Hi everyone

Has anyone been able to perform a CD install of 0710b3 on the MD with HDD (i.e. not diskless install, boot from HDD not PXE). When I try this I am not asked if I need core install or MD only - only "setup new core" is available which I don't want..
My MD did receive an IP from the core's DHCP and diskless setup goes on this same machine perfectly, so everything seems to be ok on the network side...

Thank you!

Looks like this has something to do with 0710b3 version of MCE itself. Just checked - 0704 when installed from CD asks if I want an MD or core..
Is this a defect or the feature just got dismissed?

for beta3 the disked md's don't work, the matter fact the installer doesn't even promp anymore about it.

I'll add a note on wiki page known issues and maybe it will be available for 0710 Release.
