How it is better to configure diskless cluster node?

I have two computers, connected with Infiniband network. One of them is diskless, so it will boot ober infiniband (BoIB).

BoIB requires me to prepare some file, which should contain linux kernel and initrd. This matter is unfamiliar to me, but more or less clear.

What is unclear is the goal: what I should get at the end?

May I configure the diskless node so it has access to the same filesystem over NFS? Or I should not load IB channel with this?

May I leave initrd filesystem?

Not entirely clear what you're trying to do. But if one node will contain the boot files, it stands to reason that it could also be prepared as an SRP target that the other node can use for visibility to the first node's block devices.
