PXE/netboot on Pi3

Postby Gnome » Fri Nov 04, 2016 2:34 pm

Hello!
Pi3 can generally boot over Network without SD-Card. Has anyone tried this for WT-Ware?
Description on the RasPi website didn't help me to get PXE-boot to work.

Any hints or experience on how to configure a Pi3 for netboot to WT-Ware without SD-Card?

Really? Give me an instruction. As far as I know, Pi3 can not start without SD.

Prepared the Pi3 as described and it seems to access the network for boot information (LAN-leds flashing) but nothing more happens. Screen is black. Any ideas how to get further?

Did you update the RPi firmware with the net boot settings from Raspbian?

Yes. Updated next_branch firmware and activated netboot option. Had the WTware netboot active before, starting from SD card, and it worked. RPi's netboot may not be working the same way as WTwares netboot...
Think this is more or less a question to the technicians at WTware...
Did anyone try to boot from blank RPi to WTware before?

I cracked the nut !!!

Managed to netboot WTware client without SD card.

There may be certain restrictions...
Let me have some tests done before I tell you more.

:D
