ubuntu 12.04 pxe boot fail with message IP-Config: no response after * secs - give up


I followed the DisklessUbuntuHowto and set up my pxe boot service. When configure the dhcp server in /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf, I tried to use static IP address as follows, in which "00: 22: 15: F8: D9: 1A" is the mac address of the first network card in sms04 (it has two).
Quote:
allow booting;
allow bootp;

subnet 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
range 192.168.0.21 192.168.0.30;
option broadcast-address 192.168.0.255;
option routers 192.168.0.50;
option domain-name-servers 192.168.0.50;

filename "/pxelinux.0";
}

host sms04 {
hardware ethernet 00: 22: 15: F8: D9: 1A;
fixed-address 192.168.0.25;
}
When I boot sms04 using the first network card, it can successfully get the IP 192.168.0.25 (static ip) and then load vmlinuz and initrd.

And then it failed with message
Quote:
IP-Config: no response after * secs - give up
Now, I try to pull out the cable in my first network card and plug in the second, after a while, it successfully boot up with dynamic IP address 192.168.0.21!

However, the dynamic IP address is unwanted. I try every method to boot from static IP, by failed.

I will appreciate any reply.

Never used pxe but found this which may help.

Take a look at the 3rd image box there. It is what attracted my attention. Seems to think that there is another line that is important that I do not see on your configuration.
next-server 192.168.123.1;

It turns out to be some problem related to the network card itself.

When I change this line "hardware ethernet 00: 22: 15: F8: D9: 1A;" to "hardware ethernet 00: 22: 15: F8: D9: 1B;" (my second network card in sms04), and use the second network card to boot up, everything is OK.

However, I still don't know what's wrong with the first network card.

Any way, thanks for your help!
