Re: [K12OSN] Guidance on troubleshooting - new RHEL6 + LTSP won't PXE

Per the instructions I configured ltspbr0 and tried to PXE boot the

two VMs for testing purposes.

I receive the following error:
PXE-E51: No DHCP or proxyDHCP offers were received.


After failing to PXE boot I loaded an OS on the thin client and was
able to ping, so it doesn't appear to be a connectivity

So, your clients in "fat mode" can get a DHCP address, but PXE clients cannot?

I went ahead and rebooted my server, then tried to PXE again. No dice.

I ensured DHCP is running and listening for connections:
# chkconfig --list | grep dhcp
ltsp-dhcp	0:off	1:off	2:on	3:on	4:on	5:on	6:off

# service ltsp-dhcp status
dhcpd (pid 1920) is running...

$ netstat -an | fgrep -w 67
udp	0*

If dhcpd is running, have you checked to make sure it's listening on the right network interface? Tcpdump may be your friend here.

I then ensured tftp was running and enabled

Your problem is before TFTP.

I'm sorry I'm not much help here. In my case, I'm not using the LTSP server as the DHCP or network router/nat; my clients are on my internal network just like any other host, receiving dhcp addresses from my network's existing DHCP server. I'm not completely sure I understand the ltspbr0 function.
