boot from pxe image
I have been assigned to the following task:
currently, a dell 780 server PXE boots from an image on a 2850 via DHCP server. The problem is, if the 780 is turned on before the 2850, it fails to find the image and hangs. What i need to do is prevent it from hanging. My idea is to install a small distro linux onto the 780, first boot into that. then i can check to see whether or not the 2850 is ready. (using some polling mechanism) when it is, i boot from the image on the 2850.
my question is, is there any way to boot from the pxe boot image from within linux?
