Can't PXE boot DL 360G5 w/ NC373i firmware 2.1.0

Can't PXE boot DL 360G5 w/ NC373i firmware 2.1.0

I'm having trouble PXE booting a particular DL 360 G5 we purchased about a year and a half ago.

We PXE boot all our gear for installation with RHEL, and we've done several HP DL and BL machines this way. This DL 360 G5 has a more recent ROM and NIC firmware than the rest, as I flashed it up in November. However, it just dog-gone will not retrieve the pxelinux.0 file from our DHCP/PXE server. (The DHCP/PXE machine runs RHEL4 and RH-provided syslinux and tftp-server packages.)

I have packet traces showing the server asking for the file, and the server responding with TFTP negotiations, but the server never actually retrieves the file. It just tries and tries and tries, then eventually gives up and reboots.

Along the way I've re-flashed it to current, now on the latest Firmware CD, 8.00. (Alas, I can't down-rev the firmware as I hadn't checked that box when upgrading.)

Anyone having similar issues?

Thanks,
Andrew
