|For a reboot, you would have to enter it in again at the boot menu, within the 30 second timeout, or it will use the default options, which does not include "noeject".|
Same thing for an ssh session reboot.
Ok, I seem to be missing something here. Please bear with me if I am being stupid.
If I am at a remote ssh session, perhaps miles away, and I call for a reboot, how do I enter the 'noeject' cheatcode at the local boot menu ?
Or perhaps I didn't make my intent clear from the outset. I want to make this thing come back to life, as configured, un attended in the event of either a local power interruption or a user invoked reboot from an ssh remote session.
So far I can do all this EXCEPT that the cd ejects and waits for someone to put it back in when the system is rebooted remotely.
How can I stop this from happening that does not require local console user intervention?
Aside from remastering like Jason suggested, you can also install to a flash drive, which would get rid of the ejecting problem, allow for easier (imho) changes to the default boot settings, and some extra storage space.
But, as a side note, all my computers have, without fail, forced closed the cd drive if it is open on boot/reboot.
Or is your problem really about the "Remove cd and press enter to finish rebooting/shutting down" message (Which afaik, wasn't required on reboot, only on shutdown, but I've been on a usb boot for so long I've forgotten.)
