Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 983254
Additional step needed in setting up PXE provisioning in Satellite 5.6
Last modified: 2015-05-11 18:09:04 EDT
In Satellite 5.6 we need to tell people to ensure that a 'cobbler-loaders' rpm is installed as part of the setup for getting PXE installations to work.
Specifically (looking at the 5.5 Getting started guide: https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite/5.5/pdf/Getting_Started_Guide/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite-5.5-Getting_Started_Guide-en-US.pdf ) in Procedure 2.6 on page 16 there needs to be a new step between steps 2 and 3, maybe something like:
3) On the Satellite ensure that the cobbler-loaders rpm is installed and the latest version by running "yum install cobbler-loaders". This ensures that the pxelinux.0 boot image is installed and available on the Satellite.
The latest cobbler-loaders package needs to be installed. This is to ensure that the pxelinux.0 boot image is installed and available on the Satellite before PXE booting. To install the latest version:
# yum install cobbler-loaders
Satellite 5.6 Documentation is published, as part of the 5.6 release and can be found here:
