Description

Currently a user has to edit the PXE or provision template to use the static configuration. Maybe having a checkbox in the UI would be more user friendly?

Since we have already Boot mode for network we should use it for determining static or dhcp configuration of primary interface in provisioning templates.

This is fixed in 1.8.0 as community templates now obey subnet dhcp boot mode (with fallback to @static on older versions).

oh that was too early, preseed still relies on @static only

Marek, we have this page:

http://projects.theforeman.org/projects/foreman/wiki/KickstartStatic

Is this still valid? Would you mind documenting this, I see it has more features now. The wiki could have been migrated to our official documentation with futher expansion. I am interested in getting more information about this.

#12 Updated by Marek Hulán about 4 years ago

I updated the wiki page, it's a bit in advance as Foreman 1.8 was not released yet... What is says is actually true now for Kickstart, when this issue is closed (and PR merged and synced) it will be true for all templates.
