we've 10 cores (8.7 SP4) in different countries and with different numbers of PXE servers (ca. 150).
We've migrated from 8.5 to 8.7 end of last year and switch partly from Win 98 DOS to Windows PE installation mode (the others use a own linux installation mode).
Installation with PE is much more faster than the DOS based version and has more possibilities as the Linux one (Linux has nearly the same performance as PE). So we think about to switch completly to PE but we've 10 cores and need for every core a own PE image. (Before we've only one "installation image" with Linux.)
Is it possible to reduce the number of images to only one? I know we've to include all certs from all cores AND change the all.reg file dynamically during boot. But does it work and how can we change the reg file dynamically?
My idea is to create a file with all core server and their associated ip-ranges, check the IP from the client and change the core server entry in all.reg before the reg import in startnet.cmd runs.
Has someone experiences with this or a idea for a solution?
