Alternate PXE boot images.
« on: October 25, 2008, 01:54:18 pm »
I use other windows and linux systems on my linuxmce network.  Linuxmce monopolizes DHCP and PXE boot functions.  I would like the ability to use imaged backups from these systems using something like Clonezilla.  The way I envision doing this would be to utilize the PXE boot setup to boot any system I want to backup or restore with a Clonezilla image.  Maybe something in the admin webpage that allow you to select a system and specify a image to boot too.  This would have other applications like remote deploying or the like.

Does anyone else see this as a valuable feature or utility?

yes. But if you're going to add it, please add it so that it integrates with what we have.. i.e. it must be a page accessible on the web admin... don't duplicate dhcp and pxe image handling functions, etc.
