Dns & dhcp rhel 5.1

I have installed RHEL 5.1 in VMWare 6

I want to configure one RHEL Server with DNS & DHCP

Also I would like to PXE boot, whenever I create a new VMWare Client(RHEL), the installation should be initiated via network boot

Please guide me.

I would start by looking at the Red Hat installation manual.

DNS on Linux consists of a configuration file and a few zone files.

The configuration file is called /etc/named.conf.

I would get DNS working before trying to set up DHCP.

Here are some other documents you may find useful.

What is BIND and what does it do?

BIND 9 Administrator Reference Manual

ISC BIND Name Server Howtos, Links, Whitepapers


dhcp, dns, pxe, rhel
