Description Derrien 2000-04-10 11:56:11 EDT
When there is no "next server" in the DHCP reply (our DHCP server Sun
Solaris seems to ignore this fields !) in kickstart installation, kickstart
tries to use for file server.
Comment 1 Erik Troan 2000-06-16 11:20:16 EDT
What should it do instead?
Comment 2 Derrien 2000-06-16 11:33:37 EDT
From redhat-6.2/i386/doc/ref-guide/s1-kickstart2-howuse.htm :
Note that if you don't specify a server name, then the client system will
attempt to use the server that answered the BOOTP/DHCP request as its NFS server

It seems odd to try to use the server no ?
