xcat specify alternative initrd using boottarget #openhpc #pxe

Jesse Stacey

Ive defined an alternative initrd to boot from using "tabedit boottarget":

To use it, I need to specify os=boottarget inside "tabedit nodetype" :

The problem is when I try to use nodeset $node osimage= , it always changes the os back to centos7.6  I can do "nodech s10-s15 nodetype.os=boottarget" but the next time I do nodeset it will get changed back again. How can I get nodeset to stop doing this?

Someone else online suggested I must clear my bootparams with nodech $NODE -d bootparams but I don't see any values in there.
