A Couple of Issue with Full Host Registration

  • I’ve noticed that, when you create a new host through the Full Registration in iPXE, by default, the service settings section of said host is empty (as in, no options are selected).

    I’ve also noticed that no snapins deploy by default. I’ve been having to add them once the host is created. Is there a way to add a snapin selection option to the Full Host Registration?

    By the way… Thanks for all the hard work Tom!
    I know from experience, almost all jobs related to IT are fairly thankless.

  • What do you mean by, the snapins are host related by design? I don’t mind that I have to select them, but could you add a selection option in the Full Host Registration menu, through iPXE? I just want to be able to take a new machine out of the box, plug it in, boot to the FOG menu, go through Full Host Registration, add hostname, image ID, domain add option, and snapin option, then let it go on it’s merry way.

    Right now, the only way I can achieve zero touch, is to manually create the host through the web interface. It would be nice to be able to select all the same settings though iPXE.

  • I like your signature.

    The snapins are host related by design.

    The service settings are also, kind of, by design. The idea is individualized configuration for each host as I understand it. The reason it’s deselected right off is because there’s no settings set to the host. I did, however, add a select/deselect all option to help make setting these things easier.
