RAID Config Before Image?



  • Hi All,
    I’d like to use FOG for some remote server deployments, but I’d like it to be as lite-touch as possible. What I’m wondering is if it’s possible to run a script on a machine before the image. My hope would be that my remote user PXE boots and FOG configures the RAID (via command line tools/scripts) and then puts down the image. Is this possible?

    Thanks in advanced.

    You might be able to do this by creating a custom PXE boot menu option that loads the bootable CD/DVD image that came with your server. A bit beyond my scope, but people are booting to all kinds of things from the Fog boot menu these days. You’d want to boot the the setup utility, then create a image deployment task though. I don’t know how you can chain them together.
