A.1. Setup the DHCP service
As for the UNIX/Linux based approach (discussed in Section 4.3),
you need to collect some information and data before setting everything up.
First of all, you need the MAC address of your PA-RISC box.
Please check rboot preparation for details.
You are going to need a lifimage file.
Please read Section 4.3.1.
Then, you have to enable DHCP service on your Windows™ box.
You can do that by going into the Control Panel,
open Add/Remove Programs, select Windows
Components and finally Networking Services.
There, enable Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
You need to configure the DHCP service now. Launch the DHCP admin tool by
going into the Control Panel, open Admin
Tools and select DHCP.
Expand the server tree.
Right click on
In Reservation name, put the workstation's host
name. Enter an unused IP address. Enter the PA-RISC box' MAC address (no
delimiters, just the hex number). Select Both for whether it
should be bootp or dhcp. Click Ok to close this window.
Look for your newly created reservation at the bottom of the
list under Reservations and click it.
Right click on Configure Options...
It should have inherited your server's default
options, so we won't cover setting router, dns, wins and lease length.
Scroll down the list of options to 066: Boot
Server Host Name. Check the box next to option 066.
Enter your tftp server's ip address, because IPL can't resolve hostnames.
Check option 067: Bootfile Name and
enter the name of the lifimage. Generally, lifimage
is a good choice here.
Click Ok and your dhcp server is ready!
