iPXE Menu Customization Questions on Fog Trunk

  • Hi, everyone.

    I’ve used the previous Advanced Configuration Options in the fog menu to Password protect some basic network tools, and noticed the new options available in the Trunk to have my own menu Items.

    My question is:
    is it possible to have these new menu Items listed in their own iPXE submenu or the existing “Advanced Menu” in Fog? so I can password protect them? or just have them off the default menu?

    I’ve worked out how to password protect an Item (not exactly sure that all this is need) but as an example:

    param mac0 ${net0/mac}
    param arch ${arch}
    param username ${username}
    param password ${password}
    param advLog 1
    echo This computer :
    echo MAC address....${net0/mac}
    echo IP address.....${ip}
    echo Netmask........${netmask}
    echo Serial.........${serial}
    echo Asset number...${asset}
    echo Manufacturer...${manufacturer}
    echo Product........${product}
    echo BIOS platform..${platform}
    echo press any key to return to Menu
    goto MENU

    I have this listed as “Advanced Login required” and it seems to work fine, but I was wanting to avoid filling the default menu screen with boot options and the ability to have these in their own menu would be great.
    Is this possible or should I just continue using the fog inbuilt advanced menu with password protect?

    Thanks again.

  • Thanks, Tom.

    Yep I have the Trunk version running.
    I was hoping to have the ability to Add items to the ‘Advanced Menu’ with the new option in FOG Trunk of creating menu items. Is this possible at all?
    or if not would it be possible to create another Sub Menu instead using this feature? (Similar to Advanced Menu) that way I can have network tools/Additional PXE options in a sub menu instead of on the Main IPXE menu.

    Hopefully I am making sense 🙂

    Thanks again.

  • I’m confused. What’s being needed?

    Are you running on trunk? You can create your own menus in trunk versions.
