Installation service projects: cobbler, fai, systemimager, openqrm, theforeman, ubuntu-server-iso-testing. kirkland: See the code at lp:uec-provisioning. We did quite a bit of work in the Maverick cycle to integrate the code we started in Lucid. It's might be a pretty good starting point for this work. Design principle: * bring up a Ubuntu minimal system via a network installation. * options to use existing network services. * integration with cloud-init (use it to start further configuration management tool or whatever) Existing projects: * cobbler: similar projects. * fai, systemimager, openqrm, theforeman, * lp:ubuntu-server-iso-testing: * lp:uec-provisioning: multiple components: apt-cache / apt-proxy / apt-cacher-ng / apt-mirror, dhcp, pxe, power mgmt (wlan), web frontend (choose a physical system and assign a profile to it). * uec-provisioning-server (recommends) * uec-provisioning-common - common files * uec-provisioning-dhcpd - dhcpd server and configuration - this assumes there is no other dhcp server on the subnet. dnsmasq can provide dhcp, dns and tftp services. * uec-provisioning-mirror - local deb mirror (approx) * uec-provisioning-tftpd - tftp/pxe server * uec-provisioning-webui - web user interface and preseed configuration (preseed to be made modular) database freedom is welcome to support cmdbs audio stream lost PDU management through NUTS?
