Installation

Razor requires tftp and dhcp service. Razor does not have to reside on the same system as either service. The DHCP server needs to configure nextserver request to point at the tftp server. The tftp server needs to provide the appropriate ipxe boot configuration to chainboot from razor service.

Puppet Prereqs:

The Puppet razor module is located here:

https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetlabs-razor

The razor module will install Razor for Ubuntu Precise systems. (On Debian wheezy mongodb and nodejs is provided by sid testing repo).

On the Puppet master, add the razor class to the target node:

node razor_system {
  include razor
}

Run puppet apply to apply the test manifests:

puppet apply razor/tests/init.pp

Manual Prereqs:

For other systems, install the following software requirements as appropriate for your platform:

Razor:

Configure dhcpd to retrieve pexlinux.0 from the tftp server:

filename "pxelinux.0";
next-server ${razor_ipaddress};

*note: in MacOS Fusion 4: /Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/vmnet8/dhcpd.conf

Configure tftp server to boot ipxe with appropriate razor ipxe config.
