sortof fudged a way to "F12" into RIS by forcing a client to remote
boot to a custom PXE image that pointed to the "n12" startrom.com file
(all our clients default to PXE so it can't be changed globally) which
loads to the RIS OSChooser fine... from there I can remotely using SOL
choose an operating system image to build on the remote PC... whereupon
it gives me the following error -
"The operating system image you selected does not
containt the necessary drivers for your network adapter.
Try selecting a different operating system image..."
Which is the standard "you haven't added the NIC drivers to your image correctly" message...
images build fine when I go into oschooser manually (and indeed are
well tested & used) so it's got to be something to do with the SOL
connection - Either the PXE boot image redirect or the presence of the
active terminal are confusing RIS...
RIS being that it is there's not a lot of useful info it gives me! Has anyone else come across this problem?
Client is DQ35JO motherboard provisioned in SMB mode. I'm
using Radmin viewer 3 on the remote PC (I know this is an Intel forum
& I'm aware it could be something funny it's doing... )
*EDIT* - I'm thinking this may be down to the custom PXE image as there are some problems reported with it & RIS... thanks for looking anyway!
