Howdy,

I seem to recall seeing a couple of implementations for managing multiple Pis off of a x86 VM or similar.

Are you all familiar with any of those implementations or have decent suggestions for that?

Ideally I'd like to PXE boot each Pi off of a VM in my R630 server so I can network boot and push a beowulf style cluster image from a centralized pane of glass. Was just looking to run a couple Pis with the PoE hat as an easy MPI cluster so I can gain some knowledge coding against that environment. Tying them together via PXE and a management server seems more streamlined than getting a bunch of SD images and similar.

Thanks!
