zero-touch provisioned mythfrontend appliance

Post by warpme » Mon Jul 03, 2017 2:42 pm

Hi,

Just FYI:

Recently I was working on zero-touch provisioning aspect of MiniMyth2 and achieve state where adding frontend appliance requires ONLY PXE boot enabling in BIOS
(assuming You have properly prepared PXE server).

So whole procedure of adding frontend can be more-or-less following:

1.enter BIOS/EFI
2.enable PXE Boot
3.connect Ethernet cable; power ON
4.you should have fully functional frontend

Also I enriched MiniMyth2 site with set of PXE setup automation scripts for vanilla UBUNTU/FEDORA installations.
Interested ppl may look at "Download" tab on http://minimyth2.homenet.org

or get them from following links:

http://warped.homenet.org/install-on-vanilla-ubuntu.sh

http://warped.homenet.org/install-on-vanilla-fedora.sh

Just download script, launch in terminal and follow the white rabbit….err instructions on terminal :-)

PS: If You have any questions or want to discuss - pls go to MiniMyth2 dedicated sub-forum...

happy watching!
