This testcase is to run netboot installation on arm64 machines. You need an installed Ubuntu machine in the same network.

Proceed in your native language if you wish. Instructions will remain in English.

RELEASE is the current development codename.
HOST is the IP address of installed Ubuntu machine.
On your installed Ubuntu machine.

sudo apt install -y tftpd-hpa apache2
sudo curl -o /var/www/html/test-live-server-arm64.iso
sudo mkdir /var/lib/tftpboot/grub /var/lib/tftpboot/casper
sudo mount -o loop,ro /var/www/html/test-live-server-arm64.iso /mnt
sudo cp /mnt/casper/initrd /var/lib/tftpboot/casper
sudo cp /mnt/casper/vmlinuz /var/lib/tftpboot/casper
sudo curl -o /var/lib/tftpboot/grubnetaa64.efi.signed
echo "menuentry \"Netboot from Ubuntu Live image\" {" | sudo tee /var/lib/tftpboot/grub/grub.cfg
echo " set gfxpayload=keep | sudo tee -a /var/lib/tftpboot/grub/grub.cfg
echo " linux /casper/vmlinuz url=http://HOST/test-live-server-arm64.iso only-ubiquity ip=dhcp ---" | sudo tee -a /var/lib/tftpboot/grub/grub.cfg
echo " initrd /casper/initrd" | sudo tee -a /var/lib/tftpboot/grub/grub.cfg
echo "}" | sudo tee -a /var/lib/tftpboot/grub/grub.cfg

Reconfigure the dhcp server for grubnetaa64.efi.signed as filename and next-server as installed Ubuntu machine. e.g.

host testbed {
hardware ethernet 00:00:00:11:22:33;
filename "grubnetaa64.efi.signed";

Power on your arm64 machine and boot from ethernet. Connect to console output and you shall see grub menu. Press ENTER to load kernel and finish the installation.

If you finish the installation, please submit a 'passed' result.
If any action fails, or produces an unexpected result, please submit a 'failed' result and file a bug. Please be sure to include the bug number when you submit your result.
