I'm trying to set up MAAS with about 8 nodes and I've been doing the automatic install through PXE which works great. Problem is, every time I restart the machines through the MAAS web ui, the node re-installs the OS through PXE. Should I be disabling PXE after the node is up and running so that it doesn't re-install every time?
Reason I ask is, I don't see this listed in the documentation anywhere, so I'm not sure whether it's a good idea to disable PXE on that machine. Am I doing something wrong?
Edit #1 - BTW if I change the boot priority to set the PXE as the second boot, it drops me into the busybox mini shell and fails to start up.
Edit #2 Solution - Ended up having to set the rootdelay=90 on the kernel line of the boot loader and then setting the PXE boot to a lower priority fixes my issues.
