NetBoot Across Subnets
Posted on 2009-05-20
I am trying to setup a netboot system that would allow me to serve images to Mac on other subnets. Each subnet has it's own DHCP server with the netboot server NOT being used for DHCP at all. The server is an xServe, running Leopard and my test client is an old PowerMac G4, running Tiger. I can ping the server through the router, from the client, but cannot get a bootp image at boot.
I have read all of Mike Bombich's material on his web-site, but it lacks the necessary instructions on how to update the open firmware on my client to point to the server directly.
Has anyone out there done this before?
