When we attempt to PXE boot, our machines are being directed to our DHCP server to find the bootfile. We are not using our KBOX as a DHCP, but rather getting our leases from a redhat box. When we isolate the KBOX in a grey/dark network and enable DHCP on KBOX, we can PXE boot into KBE just fine.

We checked out our DCHP settings and are enabling option 66 and option 67 with the right info. We also used the program wireshark and saw that we are getting packets telling our client machines to look at our KBOX server for the bootfile. However, they still try to contact our DCHP server instead of our KBOX server.

Are we missing any specific options to be enabled in our DHCP Server?

Thank you for the help.

We were able to resolve it.

By adding the "next-server" entry in our DHCP settings, followed by our KBOX ip address, it worked like a charm.
