PXE Boot Error
I am performing network installation on the computers in my lab. All the computers are getting installed except one. There is no problem with the switch. The machine facing this issue has still an operating system loaded and it is able to participate in other networking activities.
The machine under concer is giving problem only during network installation and displays following message:
PXE-E51: No DHCP or proxyDHCP offers were received
There seem to be something wrong with the hardware PXE agent?
Could anyone please tell how can I confirm that it is hardware PXE agent issue using any of the Linux Networking tools. The machine still has Linux installed but it fails during network installation.
