LinMin Bare Metal Provisioning, a comprehensive and out-of-the-box ready PXE server suite, is delivered both as an OVF Virtual Appliance and as packaged software that you install on an x86-based system or virtual machine running the latest 64-bit version of either RHEL or CentOS 5.x. All required additional software components and network services are either provided or automatically downloaded, installed and configured at product installation time: DHCP, PXE, TFTP, HTTP, NFS, PostgreSQL, Samba, Iptables firewall, Web server, proxy server, etc.
Once you have installed LBMP or imported the LBMP Virtual Appliance, using the provided media management tools, simply upload your operating system or hypervisor ISO files and then start bare metal provisioning of Windows, Linux and ESXi payloads onto servers, blades, PCs, appliances and VMs. You can also perform bare metal imaging: capture (back up) and deploy (restore or clone) disk image payloads simply by entering a client system's network (MAC) address in the GUI and rebooting it. It's that easy!
