DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2004-12
looking for diskless advice
My little side project using DFly as a platform to do some of our system
validation tasks has snow-balled into something real, and now I need to
replicate my environment to ~30 machines and keep the OS image on each
current. There was a thread a while back that described how to setup a
PXE/bootp environment that made me think setting up a diskless
environment would be the way to go. I've never setup/maintained an
environment this big before and am looking for some advice. From other
1) is diskless a good approach or is it better to re-image the machines
each time the OS changes (a.k.a. keeping up with _Stable on a regular
2) if diskless is a the way to go, is DFly going to use the same
approach as FreeBSD? i.e. is reading the FreeBSD diskless HOWTO's going
to help me get this setup or is there a different reference.
Thanks in advance.
