Hello, Am new to FreeBSD and relatively new to linux; I have a CentOS 5.1 PXE/tftpd/dhcpd server; I'd like it to be the build/PXE server where a bunch of 1U clients could PXE boot and run:
1. diskless over NFS-Root In googling, seems like there is a clone script that preps and lets you generate a root file system structure and let your clients boot off the network. I checked the Free BSD Handbook (Chapter 29) where extensive documentation on setup is outlined, but it assumes that the PXE/TFTP/NFS/DHCPd servers are FreeBSD; mine is a CentOS; just want to support diskless PXE boot for my clients. Section 126.96.36.199.2 9Usning a Non-FreeBSD server - just indicates that do a tar/cpio of root; but ensure that special files in /dev are taken care of ... my question - - does anyone have this type of scenario setup? if so, can you please share with me your insights/cheat-sheet-how to? - i'd be interested in understanding the setup of how you handled copying the /dev files into your exported ROOT directorty ... Are there any other recommendations ? thanks in advance! -- best, Vince _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
