Problem: I’m very new to Foreman and wanting some guidance as to how to get a basic POC going with bare metal deployment.
I found this 3-year-old guide - https://www.linuxtechi.com/bare-metal-provisioning-through-foreman-server/ - which shows how to do the things I want to do! Unfortunately, it’s 3 years old and nothing from Step3 onwards appears to apply to modern Foreman.
I was able to use the Foreman Installer to spool up a test instance in VirtualBox and am keen to start trying things, but a little scared as I don’t know how to set up provisioning properly. The intent is for this Foreman install to be the “god” of its sandbox - providing DHCP/PXE to a bunch of VMs and thus being a proof-of-concept for later work (I want to use Foreman to stand up a HPC cluster).
I would love some advice and feedback - I’d be happy to turn it into a tutorial once I know what I’m doing so I can help other people in my position!
