lan boot with a 9000/800/A400-6X (rp2400)

Hy!,

I am triying to figure out, if my server is able to boot from lan for a ignite restauration, from i have seen it depends on the card and the pdc version, but i can't find what versions are required, i am looking here:

http://docs.hp.com/en/6838/LANBootOverview.html

but i cant find the info :?

my pdc version is 42.19

and the lan card is a core io, usind the btlan3 driver:
HP PCI 10/100Base-TX Core lan

what do i have to check if i am ok to boot from lan ?

Thnx!

Jus try to boot from a local ignite server. The PDC also covers the firmware part of the NIC.

Hope this helps!

Latest PDC version is 43.50 for your system (it is from 2003).

There are a lot of changes compared to your version, but nothing direct related to a LAN boot.

As long as you have the core I/O and the ignite server in the same subnet everything should work. You may also consider to use the "2 step procedure" - boot from an install CD and restore from net/tape via the advanced option menu.




Hope this helps!
