How can I offer a Kickstart documents over the network without a DHCP web server?
I intend to install CentOS 5.5 on 2 systems. I have a kickstart documents.
I would love to install CentOS on a system utilizing this kickstart documents. I'm reviewing the guidelines given by fedoraproject.org and also RedHat.com, yet they recommend making use of a DHCP web server. I do not intend to set up a DHCP web server now, and also I can not have DHCP website traffic on this LAN.
Just how can I make this kickstart readily available over the network without making use of DHCP to assign an IP and also indicate the documents I recognize that it is feasible to make the Kickstart documents readily available over HTTP, FTP or NFS. Just how can I set up the RedHat installer to have an IP address on the network and also order the kickstart documents from a remote web server?
The dhcp web server does not in fact offer the documents. The dhcp web server appoints an IP address to a host (pxe customer) which does not have an os when it boots. Along with the IP address, the dhcp web server can inform the pxe customer that it need to speak to a different web server for a boot loader and afterwards the pxe customer downloads the boot loader (generally making use of tftp) lots it, and also the boot loader can be set up to download and install the real kickstart documents making use of one numerous methods, consisting of http and also nfs.
If you do not intend to make use of dhcp, you can constantly boot the host off of a cdrom, and also at the punctual where you generally simply type linux to start the participated in installation procedure, you can come on your kickstart documents as a bit alternative in addition to a fixed networking arrangement.
