Red Hat Linux system prerequisites

The following system prerequisites apply only to Red Hat Linux systems:

  • Install the following RPM packages (unless already installed):

    • compat-libstdc++

    • tftp-server

    • dhcp

  • Enable the tftp service as follows:

    • Edit the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp file and change disable = yes to disable = no.

    • Start the service by running the following command:

      /etc/init.d/xinetd restart

  • Create a /etc/dhcpd.conf file and configure it to define the networks it serves. You do not have to define host information; hosts are added and removed as needed by the BMR software. The following is an example configuration:

    log-facility local7;
    ddns-update-style none;
    ignore unknown-clients;
    subnet netmask {  
    default-lease-time            600;  
    max-lease-time                7200;  
    option domain-name            "";  
    option broadcast-address;
    option domain-name-servers,;
    option routers      ;

    To verify the /etc/dhcpd.conf file syntax, restart the daemon and ensure that it starts successfully by running the following command:

    /etc/init.d/dhcpd restart
