Schedule for the Day[edit]

11:00am - Business Meeting starts

12:30pm - Meeting ends, everyone out. We are likely to go to D's 6pack or Square Cafe for lunch.


Ted Rodgers will discuss using Linux and Free Software High Performance Computing, focusing on using network booting (PXE) tools and utilities for system cloning.

In environments both large and small, there are numerous tools that allow an admin to get the job done. Booting systems over the network, or PXE booting, and system cloning are two such tools used in larger environments for analysis, deployment, and patching. Ted will be talking about backend requirements for PXE booting a Linux environment, what can be done from within PXE environments, and discuss a couple methods for automating system cloning over the network. Included will be a demonstration of both PXE booting and a network based system install. Shiny trinkets will not be included.
