Boot Over Ehternet- Linux Server to Raspberry Pis

Mon Aug 03, 2020 12:20 pm

Hi All,

We need some ideas regarding Boot Over Ehternet.

We are attempting Boot Over Ehternet from a Linux Server to a cluster of Raspberry Pis.

For example: We have an image of Raspbian on a Linux Server from where the cluster of RPIs can be booted-up?

The RPIs are Power over Ethernet, PoE hats and have Raspbian pre-installed. The image can be booted-up automatically when a new RPI is introduced into the system?

Please post some ideas.

Thank You.
Best Regards,

This seems quite a good documentation on that topic: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... utorial.md

Hi All,

Thank you for the answer. :D

We have been following the tutorial. It refers to Boot using a Server Rpi to Client Rpi.

We have a Ubuntu (linux) Server with Raspbian image, the desired result is to somehow ''Mount'' the image, so that the Cluster of RPis can be booted-up using Ethernet? The image can be booted-up automatically when a new RPI is introduced into the system? :roll:
