14.5. Configuring the DHCP Server

If a DHCP server does not already exist on the network, configure one. Refer to Chapter 25 Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for details. Make sure the configuration file contains the following so PXE booting is enabled for systems that support it:

allow booting;
allow bootp;
class "pxeclients" {
   match if substring(option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9) = "PXEClient";
   next-server <server-ip>;
   filename "linux-install/pxelinux.0";

The IP address that follows the next-server option should be the IP address of the tftp server.
