    Hi There! You'll ideally need to setup a PXE Boot Server with an active DHCP to do this. The link itself is self-explained.

  • cobbler.github.io Cobbler is a Linux installation server that allows for rapid setup of network installation environments. It glues together and automates many associated Linux tasks so you do not have to hop between many various commands and applications when deploying new systems, and, in some cases, changing existing ones. Cobbler can help with provisioning, managing DNS and DHCP, package updates, power management, configuration management orchestration, and much more. Jul 19, 2018 at 6:31

If you are looking for a managed/centralized/GUIfied way to do this, take a look at MAAS from Canonical:

https://maas.io/ .

Especially if you want to tether your deployment plan to security policies, or deploy configurations using Puppet or a similar tool.

Also check out Landscape for post-deployment updating, scripting, and health checking.


Otherwise look to the links provided by @muru and @AzkerM in comments for more traditional PXE.

  • I've upvoted this answer as I believe it is the correct information. I'll just add that I prefer a more atomic approach using ipxe.org at the preboot hardware level so I can include wireless devices.
