Has anyone successfully performed a PXE install of SLES9 on a system with SCSI disks?
The lab I'm building works flawlessly with IDE disks but fails when I use SCSI disks.
It seems quite unlikely that the problem you're having is actually related to PXE as such. You may want to test with a manual install first, debug that and then base your PXE setup on those experiences.
If it turns out that your SCSI controller or your SCSI disks aren't detected, try booting with the following kernel parameter: acpi=oldboot (see http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/en/2004/08/wessels_u... for more information).
Thanks - I would never have thought of that. I'll try it.
For the record the target install is on a standard production HP ProLiant system (indeed the lab is at HP). Booting from a CD works just fine but when I do a PXE boot it can't find any disks. Using the exact same PXE install with an old Pavilion with IDE disks works just fine.
I'll report any success or failure.
