Booting ProLiant Supportpack 2013.02 with PXE

Hello together!

 

Is there somebody who figured out how to boot the 2013.02 iso over pxe?

I extracted the iso file to a nfs share... my pxe file looks like this:

 

LABEL hp_spp_201302a
MENU LABEL ^ HP ProLiant Support Pack 02/2013 (test)
KERNEL /hp_stk_9.40/boot_files/vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=/hp_spp/spp2013020/initrd.img media=net rw root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk_size= init=/bin/init loglevel=3 ide=nodma ide=noraid nopat pnpbios=off network=1 vga=791 splash=silent hp_fibre showopts noexec32=off numa=off nox2apic TYPE=MANUAL iso1=nfs://130.11.6.222/rzf/tmp/NFS_SHARE/hp_spp/spp2013020 iso1opts="nolock,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,timeo=600,hard,intr,proto=udp,vers=3,ro" iso1mnt=/mnt/bootdevice console=tty0
IPADPPEND 0

 

But when booting i´m dropped to shell, telling me that mounting is not possible and tty can´t be accessed and when running ifconfig no network device are shown...


Thanks in advance!

 

Best regards,

Roger

this is what now works here:

        IPAPPEND 2

 

We use it with HP Proliants virtual serial port, it will give detailed information while booting

and a console  to debug further in case of something fails. (ssh to ilo-board, type "vsp" for virtual serial port)
