On demand option on boot menu

  • hi,

    when the client boots and i see the boot menu from clone deploy. i only see 3 options.

    1. boot to local machine.
    2. Clone deploy
    3. client console

    where are the other options like "on demand"? i select clone deploy and then next thing i see is

    "this computer is not registered . no active web tasks were found for this computer. starting registration. ip address 192.168.. . you must be logged in to continue." below that i see "username: ". how do i get to the "on demand" option?

  • After you login you will get an option to use on demand.

  • For ondemand, why it's asking me to login. I just want the client to do network boot and it should automatically contact the clonedeploy server and then start loading the image on the client.

    For my security settings I have
    On Demand Mode: Enabled
    Debug Requires Login: Yes
    On Demand Requires Login: No
    Add Computer Requires Login: Yes
    Web Tasks Require Login: No
    Clobber Mode Requires Login: Yes


  • On demand mode means you pick an image from a list after the client boots. If you want imaging to start automatically, you need to register the machine, then assign it an image in the webui and start a task from the webui.

    You need to also set add computer requires login to no. Remember to regenerate your boot menu after making the change.

  • hi thanks for your help so far.

    What if i want to for network boot and load image without adding the client. i don't want to add every computer to clone deploy. Some computers i just want to network boot and load the image.

    FYI, I did not regenerate the boot menu after making the changes. I will try this.
