Hrmmm I will need to read into this!
Ultimately my goal is to load up Macrium Reflect rescue environment, and back up a computer, store the backup in FreeNAS, reboot and image the system using CloneDeploy, then once the system is at a "default" state restore wanted files from backup.
Once I figure that out, next I'd like to figure out how I can get EuroSoft's PC Check to work as well :)
I see huge potential to turn my FreeNAS box into a total swiss army knife for IT, CloneDeploy works so well... I love it!!!
@clonedeploy 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.
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!
Hey guys I was wondering if anyone has had any sort of success adding a WinPE boot option that boots from an ISO (or otherwise), if so how do I go about editing the boot menu to do this?
I can't seem to figure it out on my own, I think I may just have an issue with the syntax. Even if someone can point me in the right direction, that would be greatly appreciated!
