Diskless Remote Boot in Linux

V. DRBL system administration

    • Some useful scripts come with DRBL. Please take a look at them. Usage will appear by running them without parameters.
    • The most useful command is dcs which sets the client's default boot mode. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like:

    • Another useful command is drbl-sl, it can load Small GNU/Linux (DSL, PuppyLinux, INSERT, PLD, Debian Live, GeeXbox, PUD-Linux...) into DRBL environment. By doing this, the client can use that Small GNU/Linu after booting via PXE. The client still can work even if the network cable is unplugged. It's fire and forget. For more info, check here.
