I'm having some problems with a setup im trying to get going. This is my setup
I got one Virtual Machine (CentOS) acting as the Build server with a static IP 10.1.1.20/24 my virtual box adapter is seto to 10.1.1.1/24 subnet.
My Kickstart file is in this directory /var/www/html/Kickstart/default.ks
My Boot file that tells where The kickstart file is located here /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/default
I got my DHCP up and running and configured properly, httpd is installed and running my firewall is off and my tftp server is up and running.
I then make a new Virtual Machine and set it up to do boot from pxeboot, it gets its IP address but shortly after it gives me an error saying it cannot fine the Kickstart file. Here is my line that specifies where to look for the kickstart file
It's weird because at school this works fine with the exact same configuration. Oh and im running my Virtual machine off my external HDD.
Any help would be appriciated.
EDIT* Sorry i made a mistake, its not that it can't find it but it says it cannot DOWNLOAD it.
