PXE Booting using Cisco DHCP
Posted on 2011-02-10
We have a location with three subnets. Data, voice, wireless.
A Novell server (or windows doesn't matter) will server DHCP on the data vlan no problem. Using ip helper-address, we can get Novell Zenworks PXE booting working fine.
Today the server crashed and we moved DHCP to the core switch of the location. DHCP is working and we still have the ip helper-address on the interface.
PXE booting doesn't work anymore. We get bootfile name not received. It also didn't show that it received an IP address. I added option 66 ip 10.0.0.33 and option 67 ascii pxelinux.0 and now I get an IP address followed by TFTP... like its waiting for someone to respond. TFTP is not active on the zenworks server. Should it be?
Has anyone ever gotten DHCP working on the core switch as well as using a pxe boot server?
