I’ll describe it more later, but this will be showing up in our siCluster units in short order. Some experiments we did on this over the past week have met with a resounding success, and give us a level of flexibility that I hadn’t anticipated before.
Now, if I can figure out how to integrate Tiburon and Jumpstart (launch Jumpstart from Tiburon), or figure out how to provision OpenSolaris systems over PXE boot. Last I heard, OpenSolaris wasn’t getting JumpStart. Which is fine if there are alternative methods that we can make work. Even if we can’t run installs over the net, we can always run it via iSCSI/diskless, which also solves the problem (and Tiburon can handle this easily).
