Hi Pradep,

can you verified the permissions for the below directories/files ?

/opt/ignite/boot/Rel_B.11.11
/opt/ignite/boot/Rel_B.11.11/WINSTALL
/opt/ignite/data

all should have a read+execute permission

Thanks!!

Re: lan ignite boot rp7410

Hi Pradep,

Need the following:
1) swlist -l product | grep -i ignite

2) ll /opt/ignite/boot/Rel_B.11.11

3) more /etc/inetd.conf | grep tftp
(make sure /opt/ignite and /var/opt/ignite are mentioned under tftp in this file)

Shalom,

Check that the DHCP server built into Ignite is running (ps -ef grep boot) and has available IP addresses.

This looks like a simple network connectivity issue.

Re: lan ignite boot rp7410

Are you getting to the stage where it has aquired an IP address from the server ?

If not, make sure the servers are in the same subnet.

Also check if you have added the bootable IP address in the instl_boottab file.



If it is able to obtain an IP address then it may be a firewall issue.

Yes, it boots and get IP address..after that nothing happens. and choice comes to select image.

Hi


when you are prompted to choose an Image, what happens after that?

Installing IG-UX Installation utilities means you have made the sevrer capble of installing OS over network.

Have you a valid system image from where the server shall install another server.

you can see by creating a golden image on the ignite server and see by using that for install.

you can start from here.
