RedHat Linux kickstart problem
Posted on 2010-08-31
I'm trying to setup a kickstart server using which I want to install the servers (kickstart clients) located in various racks in our datacenter. But for some reason, after I initiate the kickstart installation on the client machine, it is not picking the ks.cfg file and it gives the error "Unable to download the kickstart file". Actually here am not trying to do the installation across different subnet. All the servers in our datacenter are configured with the same subnet 10.100.X.X/16 (all are in the same VLAN). So I can assign any IP in the subnet 10.100.X.X/16 to any server in our datacenter. However the kickstart client is not picking up the IP leased by DHCP server and establish the connection with the Kickstart server.
Interesting thing is, when I try to install the server which is in the rack where Kickstart server located, it works.
Please advice what is blocking the kickstart client to get the IP leased by Kickstart server and start the installation. Thanks !
