where is gw entry in bootptab coming from?

Dear all,

Can you tell me something about bootptab?
Where is the gw entry coming from?

It seems for some server, it can be obtained automatically, but for some it can't and I need to configure it mannually. Where does it come from?
Anynbody shows me a light.

Best Regards

Re: where is gw entry in bootptab coming from?

I think you are talking about /etc/bootptab
the file used to boot IA clients from ignite server.

We need this file on Ignite server & needs to add entries for the clients as stated below & we need to add the minimal network stack which we need to pass to the client.

Now if "gw" is missing i think we may add
it later.

Add your client's entries to /etc/bootptab on the server. The following example is
provided in /etc/bootptab :
ignite-defaults:\
ht=ethernet:\
hn:\
bf=/opt/ignite/boot/nbp.efi:\
bs=48
System-IPF:\
tc=ignite-defaults:\
ha=00d009000000:\
ip=190.40.101.22:\
sm=255.255.248.0:\
gw=190.1.48.1:\
ds=190.1.48.11
