  • successfully kicked an el7 client via bios and was able to log in with configured user with both password and ssh keys

  • i did have to edit some perms in the tftpboot dir and make some mods to the tftp template to get to work

  • successfully kicked an el7 client via uefi and was able to log in with configured user.

  • besides the perms mentioned in last comment (that we already know about), everything went according to documentation

  • I went back to a snapshot to try to find the modification I had to make and I couldn’t find it. Looking like user error.

  • Looks like I can close this ticket out
