Feedback?Here's how I'm doing testing (netinst ISO image): Case 1: A dedicated Debian Edu gateway is already available on the network (so DHCP isn't available). As soon as DHCP configuration fails, use manual network configuration if installing a system with the 'Main-Server' profile. Set IP: 10.0.2.2, netmask: 255.0.0.0, gateway: 10.0.0.1, name server: 126.96.36.199
So, we could actually do this automatically, after main-server has bee selected, right? That's the thought in mind regarding this bug report.
We techies can configure network setups all fine, but the idea behind Debian Edu D-I is to minimize the manual interactions.
Only issue is that we move the order around a bit.So, one approach could be to move the profile selection dialog to a place before the network setup. Well... if consesus is reached, I could put that on my $LIST.
Case 2: Some NATed network (with DHCP) is available. (1) Set up the Debian Edu gateway using the 'Minimal' profile like outlined in the manual; see https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Documentation/Stretch/Requirements
Holger already suggested yesterday, to add a gateway profile to the Debian Edu profile list. Not seeing the docs, and how simple it is to manipulate the minimal profile, I'd say: let's go for that.
(2) Set up the main server on the network connected to the gateway's eth1 interface just like in case 1.
So, what do we think about this: * add gateway installation profile * move the profile selection dialog before the network setup ?
