So I have a need for a product to be able to provision some bare metal servers with an OS. Just get it on the server and then I have ansible playbooks to configure. I’m evaluating this and another product.
While I was able to get it installed I have no clue on how to set it up for bare metal provisioning. I tried to follow some tutorial and videos I saw online but they all were very old and it appears that there is no longer a provisioning setup section. The manual is all over the place to me and I have no clue what I need to setup and how to do it. Is the foreman installer setting up a smart proxy? Do i need special install options to be able to use it with bare metal.
I would think that this very basic usage case would be explained somewhere. All I want to do is provision these bare metal servers I don’t need Foreman to do anything after that as we will not be managing just preparing the machines.
So does anyone have a more recent guide or tutorial on how to setup and actually do bare metal provisioning. I have a need for both UNIX and windows boxes and rarely anymore than 10 in one batch.
If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated been struggling for two days and still cant do anything basic with it.
