—————————The Differences!___________________________

I removed:

ocs_prerun=\"dhclient -v eth0\"

I changed This

ip=frommedia

 

to:

ip=eth0:192.168.200.86:255.255.255.0:192.168.200.1:8.8.8.8

 

Where:

ip=[DEVICE]:[IP]:[SUBNET]:[GATEWAY]:[DNS]

 

you may want to change in the menu entry in between $isofile & ocs_daemonon

$isofile usercrypted=Kb/VNchPYhuf6 ocs_daemonon=

 

To create new password use these commands

sudo apt-get install -y whois 
 
echo iloveclonezilla | mkpasswd -s

 

This results in current password

Kb/VNchPYhuf6

 

Now just access via ssh user=”user” pwd=”iloveclonezilla” port 22 etc etc.

Root can be accessed via

sudo su

This assumes clonezilla is your only extra grub entry, if more, trial and error #4

sudo nano ~/.bashrc && source ~/.bashrc 
 
alias czilla="sudo grub-reboot 4 && sudo reboot"

This reboots server with CloneZilla Live ISO in RAM with all disks unmounted!
