Description Felix Botner univentionstaff 2013-01-02 14:42:48 CET
-> ucr set ucc/pxe/ldapport=1244

-> grep 1244 /var/lib/univention-client-boot/pxelinux.cfg/*

In tcs we had a ucr module (script) that was bound to the pxe variables and changed to values in the pxe configuration file in place.
Alternatively, we could run 

univention-directory-listener-ctrl resync uccpxeboot

to recreate the configurations.

This simplifies things a lot and the code is already there.

- Typo in module conffiles/uccpxeboot.py: the default path is /var/lib/univention-client-boot

OK: All parameter changes are set correctly and are applied to the pxeconfig
