RE: Kickstart fails

Will this server get a dhcp address if you boot from the boot.iso (or disk 1 with askmethod) and select http, ftp or nfs as your install path?
If so, you are probably running into a switch timing issue that I have to deal with every day.  Try adding an ethtool option to the end of your command line:
if 100MB Full Duplex:
ksdevice=eth0 eth0_ethtool="autoneg=off speed=100 duplex=full"
If 1000MB Full:
ksdevice=eth0 eth0_ethtool="autoneg=on speed=1000 duplex=full"

Subject: Kickstart fails

I have been trying to get kickstart working but have had no success.



Here are the last few lines of the kickstart process before it dies:


*getting kickstart file

*sending dhcp request through device eth0

*waiting for link

* 5 seconds

* running dhcp for eth0

* pump told us:  No DHCP reply received

* eth0 isn’t a wireless adaptor


I have checked every possible configuration with regards to dhcp, pxe, tftp, but cannot find anything wrong.


Has anyone else seen this type of behavior?


Thanks in advance.
