Setting up a PXE boot server

Remote Starter


Once the PXE server is up and running on the LAN, you can set up new machines and VMs quite easily with a network-based install. Both the Windows and Linux installation programs support various options for unattended setup. All you then have to do for a new system on the LAN is boot through the LAN and select the appropriate PXE entry for automatic installation. Do not forget the diskless client-server and disaster recovery use cases. If you run a small cluster with virtualization servers that use shared iSCSI or NFS SAN storage for the VMs, you can run them without hard disks and boot over the LAN.
