Hi,

During kickstart installation of a sun x4270 machines using dhcp/pxe the below error is obtained while the nfs file download. There are already some relevant bugs but I would like to how we can debug at this stage, i.e., what are the possible debugs?

The configurations seems to be fine, as the same is working on other set of machines. For instance, the pxelinux.cfg/"Hex" file consists:

default linux

label linux
        kernel red_hat/vmlinuz
        append initrd=red_hat/initrd.img ramdisk_size=65536 vga=no ip=130.130.21.121 netmask=255.255.255.0 ksdevice=eth2 ks=nfs:130.130.21.120:/myshare/ks.cfg acpi=off console=ttyS0,19200

in /etc/exports the directory is exported:

/myshare *(rw,sync)


nfs services are fine and the exported directories can be mounted on from other machines in the network:

 rpcinfo -p
