Setting up PXE Server for Linux, Unix and Windows


I am in verse to setup PXE server which should work for Linux, Windows and Unix.All I have done is setup PXE for Linux and it does work.I followed the link http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/PXE/PXE_Setup/Menus
Say, I need to include Solaris.Since it doesnt have initrd, how shall I make entry for it under /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/Solaris.
Please suggest.

Hello,

These things are well documented on the internet. A quick Google search turned up the following:
Solaris unattended installation
Installing Solaris with PXE.
Both links are a bit of age but the principles stay the same.

Kind regards,

Eric

The Second link talks about setting up DHCP on solaris itself. In my case I am trying to add Solaris entry into one of DHCP server which is running Linux.

Hi,

That's of no concern, it can be on any Linux host, any DHCP server should do. The first link provides more general information if I'm not mistaking. And lots more to be found on the internet. I was just pointing you to two examples.

Kind regards,

Eric

The first link seems to be for old solaris while the new Solaris 11 has different directory structure.It doesnt have multiboot directory/file.
Can you redirect me to docs which talks about Solaris 10UX and Solaris 11 versions.
