Configuring a Preboot eXecution Environment (PXE) using Red Hat Linux 7.2 on Compaq ProLiant Servers

Software Installation

The following instructions specify paths and filenames for Red Hat Linux 7.2. If you are using a different version of Red Hat and/or a different installation option, you will need to adjust the directions to compensate for these differences.

  • 1.

    Install the PXE software by doing the following:

    • Insert Red Hat Linux 7.2 Disk 2 (Binary CD) into CD-ROM drive.

    • Type:

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom rpm –ivh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/pxe-0.1-23.i386.rpm umount /mnt/cdrom

  • Insert Red Hat Linux 7.2 Disk 4 (Sources CD) into CD-ROM drive.

  • Type:

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom rpm –ivh /mnt/cdrom/SRPMS/pxe-0.1-23-src.rpm umount /mnt/cdrom cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES tar –xzf pxe-linux.tar.gz cp pxe-linux/server/linux.0 /tftpboot/X86PC/UNDI/linux-install

2. Add the following lines to /etc/services:

mtftp 1759/udp

pxe

67/udp

pxe

4011/udp

3.

Add these lines to /etc/xinetd.conf before includedir /etc/xinetd.d:

service mtftp { socket_type wait user server server_args

}

= dgram = yes = root = /usr/sbin/in.mtftpd = /tftpboot

4.

Start the PXE Daemon on reboots in level 2, 3, 5 by typing:

cd /etc/init.d/ chkconfig –-level 235 pxe on

5. Add these lines to the end of your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file:

route add –host 255.255.255.255 eth0 route add –net 224.0.0.0 netmask 224.0.0.0 eth0
