Specifying next-server and bootfile in SA520

Hello!

We are using an SA520 as DHCP server and would like to configure PXE booting.

Is it correct that 'next-server' is specified in 'primary tfpt server' field?

What about 'bootfile', where is it specified?

thanks in advance

Re: Specifying next-server and bootfile in SA520

Hi Linus,

In order for you to configure PXE, you are correct in that you will need to put the TFTP server address where the bootfile resides in the "Primary TFTP Server" field when configuring DHCP.


The  TFTP will point locally to the boot file itself.

So for example you setup DHCP on the SA520, and in the Primary TFTP server field you point it to the IP address of your TFTP server (DHCP Option 150)

On that TFTP server, it will point to the local file that the PC will load to.  This is where the "bootfile" is specified.

Thanks!

I see, thank you!

I have misunderstood the documentation!
