Has anyone successfully got the K2000 to work in an environment where DHCP is handed out by Cisco Switches?

This is the way we have our DHCP setup. We added Options 66 and 244 to the DHCP options on the switch but we get continually get the "TFTP open timeout error".

We inititially could not even get the KBE to work when booting from USB device. Got the "Unable to determine KBOX IP address" error. We changed Option 66 from the IP of the KBOX to the hostname and now that is working but we still get the timeout when trying to boot to PXE.

Any advice, help would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • hi guys, can you help, I want to try this in our environment before I try on remote office, I have RSA for one office with DHCP enabled in WIN server, I have no idea , how to setup for the office that dont have windows dhcp enabled.

    just these entries in our remote office switch will do ? do I need to make any changes in RSA/K2000 appliance, do I need to use seperate KBE for this ?

    next-server 10.100.1.23

    option 66 ascii 10.100.1.23

    option 244 ascii 10.100.1.23

    option 67 ascii k2000.0

Found the fix thanks to the "Issues PXE booting *solved" topic posted.

We added the "next-server" entry into the Cisco DHCP settings, followed by the KBOX ip address. Booting into PXE just fine now.

Make sure to use ascii options not IP. If 10.0.0.10 is your K2000 (or your RSA for remote sites) set your cisco hdcp pool options like:

   next-server 10.0.0.10

   option 66 ascii 10.0.0.10

   option 244 ascii 10.0.0.10

   option 67 ascii k2000.0
