Fog Management in PXE Menu

  • Is it possible to be able to have a PXE menu entry to access the management gui? That way changes could be while at the machine instead of relying on a mobile device, or using another machine to make changes?

    If this is currently doable, how could I go about it? If not is this a possibility for 2.0?

    Basically this would allow us to change OS types, or snapins if a machine moves to a different location. Would allow to do on the fly.

  • @Tom-Elliott O ok. Well I will wake up from my dream then lol.

    iPXE is a very limited environment, there’s basically no “web” interface accessible in the sense that you’re talking about.

    It’d be as simple to do what you need by going to “Boot to local disk”, wait for it to boot, login, open browser.

    I don’t know that what you’re trying to define is even possible within a very simple pxe environment.

  • @Wayne-Workman If this is a thing in 2.0, thats awesome. I was just throwing it out there. I wasn’t sure if I could do that now, or not. And if I couldn’t I was just inquiring about it being a part of 2.0.

  • This is a big feature request, therefore I’m against it.

    FOG 2.0 already will have a beautiful interface fully capable of everything at the target host.

    If you want to change stuff about a host at the current boot menu, you can delete the host and re-do a full registration.
