    PXE remote boot issue with Intel gigabit ET Dual port server adapter

    ramu.kavati

      Hi,

      I am trying to verify pxe boot of SLES 11 via Intel gigabit ET Dual port server adapter.

      I have setup dhcp server, tftp server, NFS (exported /tftpboot to diskless host with proper permissions) and /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default on a machine.  When I try to remote install on a diskless host, it could not find harddisk.  I had to manually mount /tftpboot as "/ " via NFS, then installation went fine.  At the end, when it asked for reboot, I have changed /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default with the options root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=nfs://<IP>/tftpboot.  But diskless throws an error "unable to mount nfs://<IP>/tftpboot".  Can you please let me know if I am missing anything in the above setup.

       

      Thanks & Regards,

      Ramu
