I have a couple of questions.
- Do you deploy this system to operate a k8s cluster ?
- If so, I imagine you disable the swap (?). But why are you deploying this
stack over bare-metal, with no VM ?
- Why not using kickstart, which is the redhat standard tftp system ? (I
mean, I am a big of FAI and its powerful class system, but anyway that
choice seems a bit odd to me),
- btw, why not using k3s, rancherOS or whatever other k8s ready distro ?
I have my opinion about these last questions, but I would also like to hear
Finally, I also had to deal with httpd/tftp issues. It depends on your
booting system (I am using syslinux 6.0.4 + lighttpd for UEFI booting
systems while I am using basic tftp for legacy boot clients).
