One of the challenges for any Enterprise Management software product is making sure that it’s secure and, perhaps even more importantly, making sure that existing security levels are not compromised in any way. In this world of black hatted hackers, sniffers and lurkers secure communications are of primary concern to any Enterprise Admin and any software that is intended for […]
What can be achieved in two days? Quite a lot…
On the way back from London after spending some time with lead iPXE developer Michael Brown in Cambridge and then meeting up with people at the 2Pint London Office. In Cambridge we did some amazing work at troubleshooting some issues that we have been dealing with. […]
New servers that support Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) 2.5 and above are now shipping. UEFI is an industry standard that is a set of interfaces between the system firmware, the operating system, and various components of the system firmware that deliver enhanced benefits.HTTP Boot is a client-server communication […]
Had a thought the other day, why do I have to keep PXE booting these devices just to see what file name and other options, if any, I would get from my DHCP, proxyDHCP or IP Relay/Forwarding devices. Surely there must be a PowerShell script that lets you do that? Well there wasn’t. I did find […]
This is a simple Little script used to demonstrate how easy it is to script and play around with advanced feature in the iPXE Anywhere web service.
Basically we have two separate primary servers, but we want to be able to PXE boot from both of them, and choose at deployment time which one to boot […]
Had a few questions lately about iPXE’s HTTP(S) support and what’s supported and not. First of I saw a customer who had set up a new HTTP only DP and distributed ALL his packages to that in order to use our 2PXE Server. As I pointed out to him, that aint needed, only the boot […]
Long time without any news, AGAIN! But we promise, we have been doing “stuff”, promise. We just cant talk about it, just yet.
We have been busy indeed coding some new things, and busy dealing with replacing some old crap out. Some of the things it’s too early to talk about, but some we will release […]
A long time has passed since we started talking about iPXE Anywhere, so where are we with things?
Well basically the entire HTTP core of iPXE had to be ripped out and be re-designed, so things took a little longer than expected… [/major understatement] One of the benefit of this work though is that iPXE now […]
One of the key concepts of iPXE Anywhere is to keep WAN traffic to a minimum while making the boot process as fast as a very fast thing. This means that you can maintain a single WDS and PXE Boot server to service many tens of thousands of clients. Want to know how many bits […]
