We’ve been using pxeboot to pull up a menu, to build or rebuild machines for years. We have this new server, and it fails. Times out. What’s happening is that it tries in this order
The first are MAC addresses, etc. I want it to pull default. It takes
*minutes* to time out each option, so after a dozen or 15 min, when it gets to defaul, TFTP has timed it out.
Now, our dhcpd config has this for pxeboot:
option-209 = “pxelinux.cfg/default”;
option subnet-mask 255.255.254.0;
option routers ;
default-lease-time 172800; # 2 days.
max-lease-time 432000; # 5 days.
I added that option-209, but it didn’t take. I’ve been looking at the docs, but if someone’s can tell me off the top of their head what I need to do, I’d appreciate it. This has become a high priority today….
