Re: Remote Rescue - PXE, SSH, and a remote console?

Is there a linux distro (preferably Fedora or one of its variants) that I

grub, pxelinux, etc... (if possible) where it boots into the main OS and on reboot, it will switch back-and-forth to a rescue distro.

suggests that a rescue mode image (initrd) might be setup as a grub target.
Perhaps you should add to that bug, with some ideas from your experience.

And if you are adventuresome you might try this idea from the same thread:

Still seems a bit scary having a machine up on the net with the non protected rescue environment. I hope you get it fixed quickly.


Of course with your situation, it MIGHT be easier to have them express the hard drive to you and work on it locally. :)

I've always thought it would be nice to be able to use the boot options
of "linux rescue vnc vncconnect=host_or_IP" with an install CD or bootable USB drive and end up with at least a framebuffer containing a root xterm in the waiting remote vncviewer. But, those options don't work together.
