Booting from an SRP target

Configuring your DHCP Server

Using ISC dhcpd

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

  filename "";
  option root-path "ib_srp::::dgid::service_id::id_ext:ioc_guid";

where dgid, service_id, id_ext and ioc_guid are the parameters of your SRP target. For example:

  filename "";
  option root-path "ib_srp::::fe800000000000000002c9030001c65b::0002c9030001c65a::0002c9030001c65a:0002c9030001c65a";

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

  /etc/init.d/dhcpd restart

Using Microsoft DHCP Server

In the DHCP administrative tool, right-click on Server Options and choose Configure Options. Click on “017 Root Path” and set the “String value” to

  ib_srp::::dgid::service_id::id_ext:ioc_guid";

where dgid, service_id, id_ext and ioc_guid are the parameters of your SRP target. For example:

  ib_srp::::fe800000000000000002c9030001c65b::0002c9030001c65a::0002c9030001c65a:0002c9030001c65a

Windows DHCP server configuration

Booting Your Client

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

Congratulations on a successful boot from SAN!
