I tried to install CoreOS via PXE, first on a VM to test (Hyper-V), goal is to run a few small hardware boxes as a cluster.
After many attempts I finally succeeded, but following are IMHO not nicely documented (e.g. on the coreos installer github page):
coreos.inst=yesneeds to be set.
- Installer complained, that image URL (
coreos.inst.image_url) was not specified, but is optional per documentation.
- Example for target device (
coreos.inst.install_dev) is given as
/dev/sdain the docs, but needs to be specified as
If desired I am willing to create a PR against GitHub docs of coreos installer, but as I am new to CoreOS, I wanted to check first whether my observations are accurate.
