@Tom-Elliott Perhaps @StefanTS does not want to set this testing software as the default item for all the systems in his environment? Perhaps he only wants to set it for a specific group of computers. That’s what I was asking.
@george1421 In fact, this one part of the installer has had a lot of issues in the past.
instead of trying once and just giving up if it doesn’t work the first time - I think it should try again… at least 3 tries, just for problems like below where someone is trying to download the file over a crappy connection half the world away… @Tom-Elliott
Report bugs, request features, or get the latest progress.
@Wayne-Workman That’s what I thought. There is no need to do extra stuff (again, trying to stay out of the OS as much as possible) for the non-technical / wiki following FOG installers. Its a simple change (in my mind) to the installer script that would make the storage nodes a bit more versatile with little to no expense in time or effort. I’m not seeing a performance or security issue by installing the pxe boot files or tftp service (other than every service that is installed is a potential attack vector). Everything we do out of band (i.e. doing a full install then hacking it later) risks brining in errors and extra work to maintain: IMO)
