Description Jeff Burke 2010-01-27 19:19:43 UTC
Description of problem:
  Currently if I provision a system the only way to remove the kickstart/pxe entry is to return the machine then take it again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version - 0.4.80

In the same tab as Power or even on the default screen a button to Clear PXE would be convenient.

I'll have a look at this once the Scheduler release is done.

Comment 2 Raymond Mancy 2012-04-10 00:22:36 UTC
The 0.9 release will change how we would implement this. Let's look at it again after that.

Comment 3 Jeff Burke 2013-02-06 13:39:00 UTC
 Would it be possible to schedule this RFE?


Comment 4 Raymond Mancy 2013-02-13 04:22:15 UTC
Hi Jeff,

Do I understand right that you want the pxe to be cleared after provisioning? 
This should no longer be a problem. The pxe should be cleared in the %post of the KS. Can you confirm this is not happening? 


Comment 5 Jeff Burke 2013-02-13 13:26:44 UTC
Hi Ray,
 Thanks for looking int this. I think my use case is different then your scenario in Comment #4. Currently if you manually provision and the install fails (it maybe a bad nightly tree) you have to schedule another provision with a know good tree so it gets to the %post section to clear the record. But if you want to try to investigate the failure during the install you have to return the machine then take it again to clear the pxe record so you now get the pxe menu during boot.

Oh ok, yes that makes sense.

Verified with beaker-0.11.3-1.git.210.bda2c22.
"Clear Netboot" works well as expected. During provision manual clicking the button can clear all pxe entries for that system on lab controller.

Beaker 0.12 has been released.
