I'm interested in setting up a generic system image that can be deployed to machines through a netboot. I'm wondering if there is a relatively painless (and if there's not, that's fine too!) way to getting this accomplished.
Overall, I'm interested in getting tips on:
- Creating a generic OS image that all machines will utilize.
- Maintaining a list of static IPs, machine names and OS images mapped to MAC addresses.
- Configuring a machine to deliver the assigned boot images to the correct machines.
- Later on, updating boot images with the latest versions of software (security patches, etc).
Thanks for any help and advice!
