Fog Server iPXE Boot for Blancco Software



  • Hi.

    I am trying to get the Blancco Software to run from the iPXE boot advanced menu.

    menu
    item --gap – -------------- Advanced Menu ---------------
    item BLANCCO Boot to Blancco
    item RETURN Return to the Top Menu
    choose --default RETURN --timeout 30000 target && goto ${target}

    :BLANCCO
    imgfetch http://192.168.1.114/fog/service/ipxe/Blancco/Blancco5Custom1.iso
    chain memdisk iso raw | |
    goto MENU

    :RETURN
    boot [URL]http://${fog-ip}/${fog-webroot}/service/ipxe/boot.php?mac=${net0/mac[/URL]} | |
    prompt
    goto MENU
    [/CODE]

    What happens: I select the item Boot to Blancco, then it goes straight to the main menu.

    I have tried numerous iPXE scripts - imgfetch/ boot / kernal, nothing seems to work.
    When I have more than one iso to boot from in the advanced menu after selecting the Blancco I am unable to load the other iso because the memdisk bootstrap is too large.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    From my experience, when the menu reverts back to the main menu, it’s something to do with the boot file or the chain loading.

    There are lots of threads and WiKi articles about chain loading. Past that, someone with more experience in this area would need to chime in. Check back here to see if others post.
