Got this working on Fedora 25

  1. last year

    Hi everyone. I got this working on fedora 25 with dnsmasq as the proxy dhcp server. I think should be working with EFI boot but I haven't tested that yet (dnsmasq added efi proxy boot support a few months ago). Anyway the long and short of it is that it's pretty awesome. Thanks to the devel(s) and keep up the good work.

    Thanks for sharing, were there any unexpected hurdles that may be helpful for others?
    I just wanted to point out to other users to avoid confusion. Dnsmasq is not needed for proxy efi support. CloneDeploy Proxy DHCP will provide the same functionality and more, while working with any existing DHCP server. But yes dnsmasq is also an option.

    Setting up the dnsmasq.conf file was a bit of a hurdle for me, and if anyone want to see the config for that, I would be happy to share.

    I may be completely wrong but I thought that CloneDeploy DHCP was for windows only. Also dnsmasq does work with existing dhcp servers (that's how i'm using it now). BTW I think that clonedeploy is possibly the best deployment system there is right now, but it's hard for me to believe that the ClondeDeploy proxy dhcp system has advantages over dnsmasq (given that dnsmasq has a high volume mailing list and very active development), but I'm keeping an open mind and I'm interested to hear about CloneDeploy Proxy DHCP.

    Thanks for the compliment. There is still a lot of work to be done though. CloneDeploy Proxy DHCP does run on Linux but also needs mono. I can see how my point may not have been clear. I'm not saying it offers more than dnsmasq but offers more for use with CloneDeploy. It is also very basic and was only about a week of development. It provides simultaneous pxe booting for legacy bios, efi, winpe, and apple netboot, and with it's integration into CloneDeploy each computer can be set to boot to a specific boot loader such as pxelinux,ipxe,grub,winpe without effecting other computers, all simply from the web interface. Here is a video if you haven't seen it.

    I'm sure dnsmasq is a proven product that overall offers more services than CloneDeploy Proxy DHCP. I was just stating that cd proxy dhcp was designed specifically for CloneDeploy which in itself offers benefits over other options.

    OK, I need to look more deeply into this before commenting further.
