Dedicated API


Recommended Posts



The "Reboot" button is going to be difficult. What kind of servers are you offering to your clients? Do they have IPMI (or something brand specific, such as Dell's DRAC or Sun's ILOM/ELOM)? Do you have no out of band management? What about power rails, can you turn the power off and on again with an API?


Reinstall will also depend on reboots, but it will also depend on having a PXE server. You can have a Deployment Server, such as NOC-PS or Altiris PXE Server (http://www.symantec.com/Altiris), but you will also need to have a network that is PXE enabled (read: DHCP) and the servers should have boot from PXE enabled...


either that or you would need code to mount a virtual ISO.


It's a difficult subject.
