Multiple PXE boot servers



  • Hi,
    is it possible to have multiple different PXE boot servers on the same network? Or is it possible to have FOG as PXE server and let it forward to the FAI server if I choose Ubuntu installation?
    I want to use both FOG, for windows installations, and FAI for Ubuntu installations and updates.

    Thanks,
    Pelle

    No… so I am not familiar with what a FAI server does. Does it behave like FOG where it will replace its standard menu with a chainload if you give a task for a workstation that is registered to it? Or does it only supply a menu during its PXE boot every time no matter what?

    I don’t know, yet. Do you mean if I have reserved the MAC address in FAI server?

    iirc on my dhcp server I can set a different PXE server/file if I use a reservation.

    check your DHCP server.
