I am trying to enable vnc or ssh into a pxe session to see the state of imaging. Due to how our school district is structured, it is at times difficult to go check on the progress of a machine. I'd like to be able to vnc or ssh in to get a status on the progress of an image or a multicast.

We are at this point in a transition period between zcm and zdm. And because of this we are using a lot of manual imaging with scripts built into the initrd with choices from the pxemenu.txt. This is forcing a renaming of machines. So, we would like to be able to make menu choices remotely. The reason for this is to standardize a name convention and take the human element out of naming. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
