PXE Boot Backend

Post by gollywog » Mon Jun 28, 2010 7:23 am

Could minimyth be used as a backend only? I was thinkg about pxe booting two 1 ru servers I have and use them for grunt work. My plan was to start them with WOL and shut them down once the job was completed? Would this be possible?

Once I get my front ends going I plan to try it but just wondering if I am barking up the wrong tree?

Cheers

While MiniMyth supports slave backend functionality, it does not support master backend functionality (e.g., MiniMyth does not include a MySQL database server).
MiniMyth running on an Acer ApireRevo 3610 and a Zotac ZBOX-ID80-U. Find out more at my MythTV page.
