Description Rick Dixon 2016-12-01 14:15:03 UTC
Some of my subnets and some of my locations require linkdelay or nicsleep to install correctly. I have a workaround in place which must be applied to specific subnets and specific network segments, however it would be nice to see this functionality bundled with Foreman.

My most problematic systems are in a "lights out" data center several hours away.  This results in remote reinstalls hanging, or all my installs needing the delay settings (which slows them down a bit).

Can the subnet and location settings be altered to allow for setting a value here?

Can the PXE templates then be altered to optionally utilize this value if set?
