15:10 dukezStep 1 - Does DHCP is working ?  YES
15:10 dukezStep 2 - Does TFTP works ?
15:11 DonDiegoand then tftp does not transfer the nfsroot
15:11 dukezTftp is not the NFSROOT
15:11 dukezTftp is for the kernel
15:11 dukezThe 1st stage kernel
15:11 DonDiegook, that's the stage where it fails
15:11 dukezok
15:11 dukezso
15:11 DonDiegoPXE-32: TFTP open timeout
15:11 dukezdid you use atfpd or tftpd-hpa of Debian ?
15:11 MrfaiHe, I remember an important change in DHCP.
15:12 DonDiegonetstat on the server shows tftpd-hpa running

15:14 dukezHere is an exemple of /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
15:15 dukezYes, don't miss the quotes
15:15 MrfaiDonDiego: you have to call fai-chboot again. There are new parameters needed in the pxelinux.cfg/... files
15:15 dukez
15:15 Mrfairead the NEWS file
15:15 DonDiegoi scrapped the whole old config
15:15 DonDiegopurged and reinstalled
15:15 DonDiegolet me try the quotes ..
15:15 DonDiegoand/or the ip
15:15 dukezDonDiego> And look to /var/log/syslog to see if the TFTP server is contacted
15:16 DonDiegoip address does not work
15:16 dukezDonDiego, try the IP if u don't set    option domain-name-servers and    option domain-name
15:16 DonDiegodhcpd rejects the config
15:16 dukezwhich one ?
15:16 dukezWhich version of dhcp are u sing ? the 3 ?
