DHCP server

To use netboot, DHCP server have to know the MAC address of VMIVME/SVA041/CCNET. When controller is turned on, the log of the dhcp request in /var/log/message can be seen. Here, you can know the MAC address of controller. Or, simple, you can connect display to VME/CAMAC controller.

This is an example of dhcpd.conf, you have to modify the MAC address.

option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers;

default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;

log-facility local7;

subnet netmask {
  option domain-name-servers;
  option domain-name "";
  option routers;
  option broadcast-address;
  default-lease-time 600;
  max-lease-time 7200;

# fixed ip
  host gto {
    hardware ethernet  00:20:4A:E4:B9:09;
    fixed-address gto;
    option host-name "gto";

  host hv {
    hardware ethernet 00:50:c2:2d:cb:2f;
    option host-name "hv";

# for PXE boot
group {
  default-lease-time 1296000;
  max-lease-time     2592000;
  filename   "/linux-install/pxelinux.0";

  host sva01 {
    hardware ethernet  00:a0:b6:04:e9:f6;
    fixed-address sva01;
    option host-name "sva01";

  host vmi01 {
#    hardware ethernet  00:20:38:01:ff:10;
    hardware ethernet 00:20:38:01:3e:53;
    fixed-address vmi01;
    option host-name "vmi01";

#  host vmi02 {
#    hardware ethernet  00:20:38:01:ff:10;
#    fixed-address vmi01;
#    option host-name "vmi02";
#  }


The server must know IP-addresses written with "fixed-address". In this case, these addresses are written in /etc/hosts . If you prepare DNS server, it is more useful.

# example of /etc/hosts   localhost localhost.localdomain  daq  gto  hv sva01 sva02 vmi01 vmi02
