Yes – look at building a iso image that contains the boot image and boot from that.
This means that the PXE will redirect the bare-metal server directly to the data store?
Does this apply also to Unix provisioning?
I mean, for AIX provisioning, can we still get rid of the TFTP server?
I understand we can use DHCP or BOOTP for system boot. What happens then?
Can we directly load ISO image from NIM, or do we still need TFTP for boot image?
this works only for windows and linux (and probably esx).
no idea for aix, jumpstart or ignite. for those 3, we require the customer have a working environment setup that we integrate with. we do not provide those services.
