[opensuse-autoinstall] HP-UX DHCP and SLES bootp/nfs server co-existance

Hi all,

I have to use an HP-UX server for DHCP on our VLAN. I would like to
keep our SLES server as the autoyast server for the BOOTP NFS etc for
the autoyast clients.

Has anyone had any experience with configuring HP-UX to pass off the
client to the SLES server?

Currently, on HP-UX 11.23 I have;

root@123:/opt/ignite/boot/LINUX# file *
elilo-3.12-ia64.efi: data
elilo-ia64.conf: ascii text
elilo-ia64.efi: data
images: directory


root@123:/opt/ignite/boot/LINUX# cat elilo-ia64.conf
chooser=textmenu
message=hplinux.msg
prompt

image=images/SuSE11/Linux
label=SuSE11
description="Install SuSE Enterprise 11"
initrd=images/SuSE11/initrd
append="install=nfs://10.205.8.145/pxelinux.0
read-only

root@123:/opt/ignite/boot/LINUX#

However, I later changed the file to read:
# cat /opt/ignite/boot/LINUX/elilo-ia64.conf
chooser=textmenu
message=hplinux.msg
prompt

image=sles11_i586/linux
label=SLES11_i586
description="Install SuSE Enterprise 11"
initrd=initrd
append="initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=65536
install=nfs://10.205.8.145/export/sles11-dvd1-i586
hostip=10.205.8.254/24
autoyast=nfs://10.205.8.145/export/generica-sles11_i586-autoinst.xml
netdevice=eth0 textmode=1 insmod=bnx2"
read-only


HP-UX /etc/bootptab reads as;

autoyast:\
ht:=ethernet:\
hn:\
sm=255.255.252.0:\
gw=10.205.8.1:\
bf=/opt/ignite/boot/LINUX/elilo-ia64.efi:\
bs=61


Not that this made a blind bit of difference because a /nettl/ (HP-UX
version of tcpdump) of the client's request was for this file:
../opt/ignite/boot/boot_lif.octet.tsize.0

Cheers, S.


PS. Please presume that we can only have one DHCP server per VLAN.
PPS. Please ignore the earlier Email with the wrong title.
