I am reviewing all the scenarios in which I will be deploying RACHEL.
Some of the nonprofits and schools I am working with have a ethernet-based network already.
The client PCs are desktops with no wifi capability.
I could buy and import a RACHEL+ device, but the costs are prohibitive.
I don’t want to install RACHEL on their primary server, as I may need to bring the RACHEL server back to the city to do bulk updates, load custom data sets etc.
So, I am considering installing RACHEL+ on Ubuntu on a repurposed desktop PC.
I’ll then connect that to the network switch.
I am in the process of trying the following:
- Installed Ubuntu on the PC.
- Downloaded the CAPv2_RACHEL_Recovery_USB_20170517.img.zip file
- Will attempt to use this to turn the PC into a RACHEL+ installation
There is a good chance that I am going in the wrong direction, since my skills in this area are a bit thin.
Please let me know!
Otherwise, I will report back on my progress after the weekend.
