Provisioning Templates

The provisioning templates page can be accessed via the hosts menu:

Hosts > Provisioning templates

The provisioning templates page houses several types of templates that form a part of orcharhino’s provisioning setup. Provisioning templates are used to generate scripts required for host provisioning.

Provisioning templates are subdivided into several types:

  • Finish template

  • POAP PXE template

  • PXEGrub2 template

  • PXELinux template

  • PXGrub template

  • Provisioning template

  • Script template

  • User data template

  • ZTP PXE template

  • iPXE template

Ensure to associate the provisioning templates with the operating system entry.

In general, a clean install of orcharhino will come with any required templates and it is neither expected nor recommended that orcharhino users manually edit any templates. Locked templates should not be changed, otherwise they will not be updated any more. Use the clone function instead. Note, however, that cloned or self-created templates are not updated during an orcharhino update.

In case you know what you are doing, and template editing is desirable, the web interface provides extensive tools to do so, including inbuilt documentation on template syntax.
