Maintain all client settings in LDAP and don't rely on PXE boot settings
Last modified: 2023-06-28 10:33:02 CEST
Some options are currently configurable via PXE options; a series of PXE UCR settings allow the configuration of the bootsplash.
Some of these settings are changes based on what we implemented in UCS TCS and which were ported to UCC 1.0. UCC how grown several features and we should streamline the whole boot options approach in a future release.
UCC can also be updated if not booting from PXE (e.g. if the BIOS has been reconfigured to not use PXE or with the new local boot option in UCC 2.0). But in such cases the client potentially behaves differently depending on whether booted per PXE (where the PXE UCR variables are set) and via local boot (where these settings are not present). In that case we would only have a rollout via PXE and everything else (updates, regular boot) would be identical.
We should configure all these settings via the LDAP. That way we have fixed boot behaviour independent of the startup method. It also allows to simplify the boot options available in the UMC and make the configuration of the UCC client more user-friendly (if it's available in the UMC).
