Hello Joe
I have just joined this list and have been following your problem.
An issue I have seen where the kickstart build stalls with DNS and NFS mount problems was a layer 2 problem.
It was intermittent and was finally cured by setting the portfast option on the switch port. this reduced the delay of the switch putting the NIC's MAC address in it's MAC table.

Subject NFS booting problem


I've got an on again, off again problem where I can initiate a kickstart for RHEL5 (32 or 64 bit), as well as
for RHEL AS4 (32 or 64 bit) and many times the NFS mount for the KS config cannot be found.  Then,
after numerous reboots to troubleshoot the problem, poof, the NFS mount is found and some systems
get built.  Nothing changed.  Even reboots of the kickstart server, the Linksys router and the Mac Pro
(with WinXP and VMware 6 installed) don't change that many restarts have to happen before it will
somehow, magically start building.
 
A most confusing problem and one that I need insight, advice and questions from you all on what to
check so I can solve it.  All help is appreciated!
