BSDPy - Apple NetBoot server
I think it would be amazing to be able to get rid of a mac and deploy studio and have FOG do it all. How hard would it be to get BSDP implemented within fog? It seems like it uses many of the same services and runs on the same Linux OS’s. This link provides a pretty good process using Linux for imaging Macs…:
@larosejm If you don’t want to bother about DHCP at all you can even go and
blessyour Mac clients (see in the wiki article). We use it and it’s working great. But this needs to be done on every machine as the setting is saved in NVRAM.
Or you can go use the DHCP settings provided in the wiki and press ‘n’ on your clients (use stones if you want to multicast many) while booting. The DHCP config in section ‘fancy’ is working for most current devices I find. Don’t bother about the other config snippets.
Thanks. I remember trying that about a year ago and couldn’t seem to get it to work for the iml13 I was using. The problem was likey because I was using dnsmasq. I’m using Fog on an internal network and using FOG for dhcp now so I will give it another go. We image all models of macs and Yosemite and up for OS X and Windows 7 64-Bit and up for Windows.
@larosejm I’ve been doing Mac OS X cloning for about a year now. Working great with FOG trunk. Except you need to modify your DHCP config for Mac netbooting. See here: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/FOG_on_a_MAC
Which Mac OS clients (and OS) are you using? Which DHCP server is in use?
