Is there a way to use http istead of tfp to load kbe environnement. On our distant site, it takes 4 minutes instead of one to load a kbexxxx.iso file. As tftp is less efficient and secure than http, is there a way to switch?


Answer Summary:
No tftp is part of the RFC

  • iPXE (formerly gPXE) can do HTTP booting, but the K2000 uses PXE as you have posted the details of above.

Have you considered using a Remote Site Appliance (RSA) for your other site?  This would allow you to PXE boot locally and do your deployments without having to go over a WAN connection.

  • Thank you for all the answers.

    We have a good connection between our two sites (1Gb), but due to the distance (60km) a small latency increase the deployment time, and we don't want to use a RSA.
  • Are your latency issues only with booting to KBE? Or with the deployment as well? Also, are you using K-Images or Native Images?
    • only with booting to KBE? Yes.
      We are using wim image or installation from source media.
