I’ll show you how to create network booting (PXE) with clusterdeploy.

Install Web Application

yum -y install yum-utils
yum -y install epel-release
rpm --import ""
yum-config-manager --add-repo

yum -y install mono-devel apache2-mod_mono httpd udpcast lz4 mkisofs wget
wget " 1.4.0/clonedeploy-1.4.0.tar.gz"
tar xvzf clonedeploy-1.4.0.tar.gz
cd clonedeploy
cp clonedeploy.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d/
mkdir /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r frontend /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r api /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r tftpboot /

ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/bios/images
ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/efi32/images
ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/efi64/images
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/bios/kernels
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/efi32/kernels
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/efi64/kernels

mkdir -p /cd_dp/images
mkdir /cd_dp/resources
mkdir /var/www/.mono
mkdir /usr/share/httpd/.mono
mkdir /etc/mono/registry
chown -R apache:apache /tftpboot /cd_dp /var/www/html/clonedeploy /var/www/.mono /usr/share/httpd/.mono /etc/mono/registry
chmod 1777 /tmp

sysctl fs.inotify.max_user_instances=1024
echo fs.inotify.max_user_instances=1024 >> /etc/sysctl.conf
chkconfig httpd on

Install Database

echo "[mariadb]
name = MariaDB
baseurl =
gpgcheck=1" >> /etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB.repo

yum -y install mariadb-server
service mariadb start
chkconfig mariadb on


create database clonedeploy;
CREATE USER 'cduser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'Password1';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON clonedeploy.* TO 'cduser'@'localhost';

mysql clonedeploy < cd.sql -v

Open /var/www/html/clonedeploy/api/Web.config with a text editor and change the following values: xx_marker1_xx to your cduser database password you created earlier On that same line change Uid=root to Uid=cduser xx_marker2_xx to some random characters(alphanumeric only), probably should be a minimum of 8

service httpd restart

Install Samba Server

yum -y install samba
groupadd cdsharewriters
useradd cd_share_ro
useradd cd_share_rw -G cdsharewriters
usermod -a -G cdsharewriters apache

smbpasswd -a cd_share_ro
smbpasswd -a cd_share_rw

echo "[cd_share]
path = /cd_dp
valid users = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro
create mask = 02775
directory mask = 02775
guest ok = no
writable = yes
browsable = yes
read list = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro
write list = @cdsharewriters
force create mode = 02775
force directory mode = 02775
force group = +cdsharewriters" >> /etc/samba/smb.conf

chown -R apache:cdsharewriters /cd_dp
chmod -R 2775 /cd_dp
service smb restart
chkconfig smb on

Install TFTP Server

yum -y install tftp-server
sed -i 's/\/var\/lib\/tftpboot/\/tftpboot -m \/tftpboot\/remap/g' /usr/lib/systemd/system/tftp.service
systemctl daemon-reload
service tftp restart
chkconfig tftp on

Create Firewall Exceptions

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=http
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=https
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=samba
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=tftp
firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=dhcp
