Zauto script - Automatically set image-safe data from DNS lookup in the Linux PXE environment.
Trial demo by Stig Sorensen
Contents: .tar containing Linux and readme files
Notes: The zauto script is a fast way for updating image-safe data from the Linux PXE environment, given that workstation hostnames are known to the DNS server. Image-safe data is updated by simply calling the "zauto" script from the bash-prompt or from a scripted image. Default values for image-safe data can be changed by editing the "zauto" script located in the "extra" folder.
