Red Hat Linux Kickstart/Jumpstart server - Boot from SAN with HP Virtual Connect Flex 10

Rino had a RedHat question:

 

***********************

 

Excuse my lack of knowledge when it comes to Red Hat Linux.  I have a partner that has a few questions around Red Hat Linux Kickstart/Jumpstart (see below email).  I assume if this process works with traditional Rack and Tower servers that they should be able to use that same process on our HP blades and VC Flex-10 technology, but need your expert opinion to confirm.  Also, does HP Insight Control for Linux provide what the customer is trying to accomplish with Kickstart/Jumpstart? 

 

Thank you for your guidance.

It can be done and will work. Insight Control will also deploy RedHat and SUSE Linux. Insight Control uses Kickstart to accomplish its installations. A deployment network will be required along with other network planning for the customer.

Are you using this method for Boot from SAN? Let us know?
