@K.Hays When booting into FOS this way we only need to ensure that the FOS kernel is updated to support new hardware.
So as the developers release new version of the FOS engine all you need to do is download these files and move them to the previously created usb flash drive into the boot folder replacing the existing files.
In regards to the usb network adapters. When you pxe boot uefi devices you MUST use network adapters recommended by the manufacturer to support pxe booting. When you usb boot into FOS you will have better luck with older USB 2.0 network adapters since those are most likely supported by the linux developers.
That’s awesome actually i didn’t know that. How many computers can fog do max in this way, do you think?
As many as you wish. I limit mine to 2 to keep things moving along quickly - that way no computer takes hours, but each one takes about 5 minutes and they take turns. This is also easier on the server’s HDD as well.
For image deployment to many hosts at once using unicast, the server’s HDD speed is critical, along with it’s network speed. The switch’s internal throughput is also important.
