Booting from an AoE target

Place the following two lines in /etc/dhcpd.conf:

  filename "";
  option root-path "aoe:eN.M";

where eN.M is the AoE target name that you selected for your target.

You will probably need to restart your DHCP server for the changes to take effect:

  root@chipmunk# /etc/init.d/dhcpd restart

Boot your diskless client using gPXE. If all has gone well, you should see it boot from your AoE target image.

Congratulations on a successful boot from SAN!
