Automating the deployment of FreeBSD & PC-BSDĀ® systems

 

In PC-BSD 9.x every installation is fully-scripted, due to the the pc-sysinstall backend. This backend can also be used to quickly automate the deployment of FreeBSD servers and PC-BSD desktops using a PXE boot environment. In PC-BSD & TrueOS™ 9.1 and higher, this functionality is easy to setup and deploy using the “pc-thinclient” utility. This utility handles the initial setup of PXE on the host system, and provides a framework to manage client installation configurations.
