http://forums.opensuse.org – I am trying to come up with a DHCP configuration that will allow a pxe client to boot just like the 3com pxe server with proxyDHCP setting. basically the ip address needs to come from the authoritative DHCP (which the machine has a static DHCP assigned address) yet get the additional information for pxe booting) i have researched and come up with this document from opensuse wiki with a code snipit: Code:default-lease-time 600; max-lease-time 7200; ddns-update-style none; ddns-updates off; allow booting; option domain-name "my.domain"; option domain-name-servers my.dnsserver; option routers my.router; # define rules to identify DHCP Requests from PXE and Etherboot clients. class "pxe" { match if substring (option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9) = "PXEClient"; } class "etherboot" { match if substring (option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9) = "Etherboot"; } subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 { option broadcast-address 192.168.1.255; pool { default-lease-time 180; # no long lease time required for booting max-lease-time 360; # booted system does its own dhcp request server-name "mybootserver"; next-server mybootserver.; # in case your local DNS only handles # unqualified domains keep trailing '.' filename "pxelinux.0"; allow members of "pxe"; allow members of "etherboot"; # allow etherboot, too range 192.168.1.201 192.168.1.211; } }but it still has a subnet tag other than what is already there. is there a way to use dhcp-relay to do this in linux?
