I am on V0.32. I tried 1.2, but it had major issues, most likely do to the upgrade process, and had to rollback.
My question is that we just have started using nodes at our remote site, so we can image on site, and not pull the image over the small MPLS connection. I have setup the node and everything seems to be working fine.
However, I have run across instances where computers I am imaging are pulling from the remote site.
Reading through the wiki and forums, there is no logic I can find that specifies how a specific imaging job selects which storage node it pulls the data from.
As far as I can tell, its random. If I image 2 computers at the same time, the first images off the HQ Node, the second images off the remote Node.
Shouldn’t it be looking for the closest node, and select that? Is there a way I can specify the node per task or by editing the PXE boot menu?
For now I am disabling the remote node until we need to image a computer at the remote site. Then I enable the remote node and disable all others. This seems to be a bit of administrative overkill…
Network topography is as follows:
FogServer (main node), vlan 1 (server vlan)
HQ Node (Secondary Node) Vlan 10 (PC Vlan)
–Gigabit Switches –
Worksation Imaging Area VLAN 24
Remote Site Note - VLAN 45 (remote site PC VLan)
Remote Site Workstation - VLAN 45
Any advice is appreciated!
