@pvl1-58e7de89d73408ce4f56d82a:gitter.impvl1 (pvl1)
In reply to @justenius_gitlab:gitter.im
is there a way to maybe just have that changed to ipmilan when adding the system?
grep: /etc/cobbler/settings.d: Is a directory
/etc/cobbler/settings.yaml:# ipmilan ipmilanplus lpar rsa virsh wti
/etc/cobbler/settings.yaml:power_management_default_type: 'ipmilanplus'

@pvl1-58e7de89d73408ce4f56d82a:gitter.impvl1 (pvl1)according to my research, it does this for the ip address, inhex, not mac 17:36:46
@pvl1-58e7de89d73408ce4f56d82a:gitter.impvl1 (pvl1)but i kept thinking it is mac17:36:54

@algirdas-z:gitter.imalgirdas-zdouble checked today, FYI i'm using grub so it might be a bit diferent, yet mac can be still partially matched 07:44:57

@algirdas-z:gitter.imalgirdas-zas you can see it downloads bootloader, then searches for config using full mac and then if not found - partial. Would it fit your idea?07:45:42

@pvl1-58e7de89d73408ce4f56d82a:gitter.impvl1 (pvl1) algirdas-z: i for a long time thought that it was partial mac matching.
The first line, is a full mac match (except for the 01-)
The other lines, are partial IP matches
15:35:55
@pvl1-58e7de89d73408ce4f56d82a:gitter.impvl1 (pvl1)the IP is represented by taking each octet, as hex (iirc), and each match is one less digit in the last octet 15:36:27
@pvl1-58e7de89d73408ce4f56d82a:gitter.impvl1 (pvl1)for example, 192.168.123.231, then 192.168.123.23 then 192.168.123.215:36:56
@pvl1-58e7de89d73408ce4f56d82a:gitter.impvl1 (pvl1)i thought they were mac addr for years lol15:37:08

Ok, that is new to me too :) now, what are you trying to achieve? Would it be okay for you to load "specific" config but use same bootloader? Because when using grub, it has ability to do that, if you would look to templates, you would see following

set mac=${net_default_mac}
export mac

if [ -s "$prefix/system/$mac" ]; then
  source "$prefix/system/$mac"
  echo "Machine specific grub config file $prefix/system/$mac for $system loaded"
else
  echo "Could not find machine specific grub config file $prefix/system/$mac"
fi

While not sure, but I think you should be able to do that with pxelinux also

@nicolasmelot:gitter.imnicolasmelotHi! Is there any way to pass secrets to machines being provisioned by cobbler? Something that should only be possible to obtain from the machine being provisioned, maybe based on requestor's MAC or IP address15:34:41

@nicolasmelot:gitter.imnicolasmelotI might have an idea to my problem: I can add metadata to the cobbler system to be installed, that the host can find without having them transmitted from cobbler to the new machine. This can be the motherboard's serial number, that the host can find using dmidecode09:54:32

@interceptorf-612d2d316da0373984845de9:gitter.imInterceptorF (InterceptorF)Cobbler 2.8.3 (old but the GUI works) threw an exception. I tried to install a rh9_3-x86_64 iso and I not amd seeing the following error: 17:27:00

@interceptorf-612d2d316da0373984845de9:gitter.imInterceptorF (InterceptorF)Never mind -- I figured it out. I removed that redhat 9_3 json file and now the GUI starts correctly. 17:33:36
@interceptorf-612d2d316da0373984845de9:gitter.imInterceptorF (InterceptorF)A new question. Can I run two versions of Cobbler in parallel? I run 2.8.3 as that is what the developers like due to the GUI availability, the newer versions do not have a GUI. I am not sure how I would implement a newer version because the of the need of the dhcp and tftp servers. Has anyone ever done that? 17:38:41

@robhuggy_twitter:gitter.imRob HughesHi, I have built cobbler on OEL8 VM in vSphere 8.0. I am using DHCP on the cobbler server for provisioning. I created a test VM and am trying to PXE boot this with OEL8. I can see that DHCP offers an IP to the test VM but nothing else happens. I can't see anything in the cobbler logs. I am wondering if I need to use koan for provisioning VM's on VMware vSphere?11:49:36
