Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8549
kickstart documented support of DHCP next-server does not work
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
According to Red Hat 6.1 Reference in Chapter 10 Kickstart Installations,
the DHCP next-server option should select the NFS server from which the
kickstart file comes. This does not work. The client always tries the DHCP
server, not the server specified on next-server. This appears to be a pump
We've been using the next-server for this purposeas well, and have also noticed
that it broke in 6.1, so we had to move all of our kickstart boot files over to
the DHCP server. Hopefully this will be fixed soon...
Fixed in the piglet beta.
