I have installed a MaaS node that will act as the parent and I am trying to add additional nodes via the PXE boot. The nodes boot fine and get an image from the MaaS server but they only install the 32-bit version. They are 64-bit machines and I would really like them to use the 64-bit version of Ubuntu Precise. The MaaS server has the
precise_x86_64 image according to the
maas-import-isos and it is an option when its doing a network boot.
However if I do the
maas-precise-x86_64 the node doesn't register with the MaaS parent node. It seems like it just installs a clean version of Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit.
What I want to know is if there is a setting I have to change or something to get it to just boot over network and use the 64 bit instead of the 32-bit version?
I have checked everywhere for this answer and couldn't find anyone even referring to the other options at network boot. Everyone just wants you to wait for the timeout but for me that means it'll install the i386 version instead of the x86_64.
Has anyone experienced this and knows how to make it install with the 64-bit version instead of the 32-bit one?
