fog

i made this change to dhcpd.conf…



subnet 172.20.157.96 netmask 255.255.255.224
{
  #filename “undionly.kpxe” ;
  next-server 172.20.157.100 ; # server running tftpboot
  range 172.20.157.98 172.20.157.126 ;
  option broadcast-address 172.20.157.127 ;
  option routers 172.20.157.97 ;
    class “UEFI-32-1” {
    match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 20) = “PXEClient:Arch:00006”;
    filename “i386-efi/ipxe.efi”;
    }

    class “UEFI-32-2” {
    match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 20) = “PXEClient:Arch:00002”;
     filename “i386-efi/ipxe.efi”;
    }

    class “UEFI-64-1” {
    match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 20) = “PXEClient:Arch:00007”;
     filename “ipxe.efi”;
    }

    class “UEFI-64-2” {
    match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 20) = “PXEClient:Arch:00008”;
    filename “ipxe.efi”;
    }

    class “UEFI-64-3” {
    match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 20) = “PXEClient:Arch:00009”;
     filename “ipxe.efi”;
    }

    class “Legacy” {
    match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 20) = “PXEClient:Arch:00000”;
    filename “undionly.kkpxe”;
    }

}


also, despite the so many uefi options..i think only Legacy works..nuc dont work…win10 dell laptop dont work…etcetc

on the same dumb switch as my fog server, 172.20.157.100, this worked..

1. change pc to pxe boot. ipv4 not ipv6. legacy not uefi. it boots first hdd after 5 seconds i think…adjustable from webui…

2. answer some questions that are info collection…

3. important thing is ? to list the images available..now only have ub20, id is 1. this associates this pc(mac i think) with that image..

4. would you like to deploy now, credentials are default fog project

5. it will reboot and do this

6. when its done it will reboot….

within the web interface at 172.20.157.100, after your host is registered..you can “capture” an image…the ub20 image is captured previously from another pc.

during install, sda1 was 40gb. during capture it decided to shrink the partition down to ~9-10gb before imaging…

i store it on zfs with compression. the image is partclone-gzip compressed. i picked partclone-zstd previously and it will not restore…

it eventually took up 2-2.1gb disk space..

i dunno any other functions yet!

as usual ask the insurers

That’s what happened in Florida. Hurricane Andrew reduced parts of cities to landfill and cost insurers nearly $16 billion in payouts. Many insurance companies, recognizing the likelihood that it would happen again, declined to renew policies and left the state. So the Florida Legislature created a state-run company to insure properties itself, preventing both an exodus and an economic collapse by essentially pretending that the climate vulnerabilities didn’t exist.

As a result, Florida’s taxpayers by 2012 had assumed liabilities worth some $511 billion — more than seven times the state’s total budget — as the value of coastal property topped $2.8 trillion. Another direct hurricane risked bankrupting the state. Florida, concerned that it had taken on too much risk, has since scaled back its self-insurance plan. But the development that resulted is still in place.
