Hi guys, I am trying to set up a server from where clients on a network can do a diskless boot of fedora 16 through pxe. I have set up the server with dhcp,tftp,nfs correctly and all are confirmed to be working. According to the guide mentioned here
I installed dracut-network on the server, generated initramfs from the appropiate kernel, and placed it under tftp home and copied the filesystem to the NFS export. When I try to do the pxe boot at the client side, the client boots up to the pxe config and loads the kernel and initramfs. Then during the initialization I get the following error-
rt169 0000:02:00.0:eth0 RTL8168d /8111d at 0xf8302000, oo:22:68:85:62:14, XID 081000c0 IRQ43
udevd renamed network interface eth0 to p17p1
RTNETLINK answers: File Exists
dracut warning: unable to process initque
and then it drops to the debug shell.
I think this is happening because dracut is trying to get new IP address on top of the pxe assigned one. someone please help me.
