PXE/Reimaging

These machines are configured in DHCP to receive /var/lib/tftpboot/aarch64/grubaa64.efi from the Cobbler host when PXE booting. This brings up the menu I manually created in /var/lib/tftpboot/aarch64/grub.cfg.

I think I manually edited a menu entry to load the files at http://172.21.0.11/cobbler/ks_mirror/CentOS-8.0-aarch64-x86_64/images/pxeboot/ and just installed these using the Anaconda GUI.

Remote Access

The BMCs have a decent java console. Login as sulcata##.ipmi.sepia.ceph.com using admin:admin
