Can you add machines to a netgroup in RHEL5 just like jumpstart in Solaris


I was wondering if in RHEL5_3 if you can add netgroups to your kickstart file like when you are jumpstarting Solaris boxes? Trying to see if I can have a group of machines use a certain DHCP or DNS server during my kickstart.

I think the only way that would work is by configuring a specific 'build' subnet, using the router to relay dhcp requests to your prefered server and having your dhcp server provide the relevant dns information

Can I set this up in dhcpd.conf?

Let me try to diagram it:

[build subnet]----[router]----[dhcp server]

- the router will have ip helper address/es configured pointing to [dhcp server]
- dhcp server will be configured to serve a pool of addresses from [build subnet] and desired dns information

Result: Any host attached to [build subnet] and using dhcp will be forced to get information from [dhcp server].

So the answer is "yes", but you also need a router, hope this makes it clearer

cheers
