Re: boot from ignite server errors

Your verion of Ignite requires boot be from the built in LAN card. Not any add in card or Gigabit add in, built in only.

Thats the error I got when i tried it through the 100 Base T add in.

You can watch the boot as follows:

tail -f /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Make sure your DCHP server has a valid unused ip address and ps -ef | grep boot on the server and try and watch for connectivity issues.

Make sure NFS and other networking is solid.

instl_adm -d

The transfer itself can be through any LAN, the boot must be built in.

Re: boot from ignite server errors

I put the network cable into the 10T built in lan card and received the same error. Should i have rebooted or made any changes when i switch the network cable? We are not running DHCP.

Re: boot from ignite server errors

My best guess now that you are on the built-in LAN port is that the corresponding port on your switch is not set to 10MB/s. Check the switch settingh and boot again.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: boot from ignite server errors

got the jack switched to 10 and everything worked. Does the latest version of Ignite let you boot other then the built in LAN?
Thanks for all the help,

I think still it is unsuported.
