I am currently trying to port a Jumpstartserver onto LINUX (SLES8) and
running into a mayor problem.
I set up all the services (bootparamd, tftpd, rarpd, nfsd) und copied
the bits to the certain directories. That should all be OK!
The SUN-Machine boots (gets its IP config & tftps the bootkernel) and
then hangs saying
"Requesting Internetadress for x:x:x:x:x:x
panic - boot: Could not mount filesystem"
The last syslogentry on the Linuxbox is:
"bootparamd whoami got questin from x:x:x:x:x:x:x
bootparamd This is host hostname
bootparamd Returning hostname SERVERIP"
The weird thing, that sometimes it boots quite some steps further. Then
it actually starts to mount the filesystem - sometimes even configure
/dev and the networkinterfaces - and then hangs at "whoami: no domain name"
As I said before, the weird thing is, that is sometimes boots further,
then the other time.
Did anybody try this before and experienced similar problems???
THX for any help!
