Re: [Spacewalk-list] PXE booting a VMWare server



Interesting... this is true but only for the hosts I have kickstarted since upgrading from Spacewalk 0.6 to 1.4.  I wondered why they were showing with the white icon instead of the usual gray/blue one.

Now I have a question... how do I get previously kickstarted/managed hosts (all VMware guest VMs mind you) to show up as virtual systems?  Not that it makes much of a difference but this could prove to be a point of confusion for some folks in my organization.

Note that VMware guests are detected as such by Spacewalk, so they do show up with the while outline icon of a virtual guest, I'm not sure Spacewalk treats them any differently apart from that though.
