ISO USB Generate - Confused

  1. 2 years ago

    Hey guys.
    Just finished installing CloneDeploy on my Freenas server and as far as i can tell it has installed correctly.

    Using the GUI, I am trying to generate a client boot USB image but i can't for the life of me work out where to find it after it is generated ( assuming it is infact generated ).

    I know the instructions says to do this on a windows machine, but does that mean CloneDeploy must also be installed on the windows machine ?

    I'm confused....

    When you generate the iso, it only generates the config files, you need to copy those to the actual iso. Download the iso here.
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/clonedeploy/files/Client%20Isos/client-1.0.1.iso/download

    Then copy the config files according to the guide. On FreeNAS the files are located at /usr/pbi/clonedeploy-amd64/www/private/client_iso

    Thank you for trying to help.
    I have downloaded the ISO.. thank you for the link.

    But i can't for the life of me find the config files.
    ***EDIT*** 26/5/2016

    I'll be more specific - How do i navigate to /usr/pbi/clonedeploy-amd64/www/private/client_iso ?

    All i can see from withing Win7 Network is a share named "cd_share"
    Within that i have 2 folders . One named "images" and the other " resources".
    Both are empty.

    Please help.

    Thank you

    FreeNAS is the most difficult OS to use with CloneDeploy. The config files are on the FreeNAS server in your CloneDeploy jail. You would need to use something like WinSCP to ssh to your FreeNAS server and grab those files. Is it not possible for you to use PXE? I guess in a future release I could change it so the config files are downloadable from the web interface.

  7. Or make a new folder under /mnt/storage/clonedeploy called configfiles. Map storage from /usr/pbi/clonedeploy-amd64/www/private/client_iso to /mnt/storage/clonedeploy/configfiles.

    (Simplest way I can think of it.)

  8. Awesome stuff guys... Thanks for your help.

    WinSCP did the trick :)

    Cheers

  9. Never mind.... Getting rid of it.
    Too hard to setup.

    Thx anyway.

    I agree with this entirely. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a generally good idea of how to use FreeNAS. What I ended up doing is exactly what @xurious suggested.

    I would also would suggest using PXE as @clonedeploy says! It's great an works super well. Albeit you need to know how to configure a DHCP server... not sure your comfort level with that, but there are tons of resources on google for that!
