  • Default configs for each boot mode are required - set up in resources, or ...
  • allow pxeserver.boot_mode_entry to be multivalued and generate config files for each boot mode.
  • How about extending the component to download and mount ISO images, then be able to use the paths in its config files? Or at least loopback mount from a local path - maybe a method to download the ISOs?
  • Add valid IP address to pxeclient.mac resource https://bugs.lcfg.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1105
 

Engineering

In engineering we're using PXELINUX to network boot machines in order to build the OS. It turns out that the version of PXELINUX we're using (TODO replace this with the version from the syslinux rpm and see if it still works) supports booting from http targets. This reduces the loading time from about 60s to under 10s.
