How to configure Novell DHCP for use with Altiris PXE?

Created: 14 Apr 2008 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 1 comment

We are running DS6.8sp2 and are trying to set up Altiris PXE on multiple vlans. DHCP is provided by our Admin computer group and they use Novell dhcp. They also use their flavor of pxe(zenworks) for managing their vlans. They are having problems configuring dhcp to forward pxe from our server instead of theirs.

This are the instructions I sent them to configure their dhcp server for our vlans.

option 43 BINARY hex string
option 60 STRING PXEClient
option 66 STRING my pxe server IP address
option 67 STRING BStrap\X86pc\BStrap.0

Does anyone know if this is correct or any suggestions on how to set this up.

Thank you.

You might want to have a look at the following Altiris KB on PXE Forced mode to see if this will help.

If PXE Forced mode isn't an option, you may be forced to use embedded bootworks. In my experience two PXE servers from two different vendors on the same network doesn't often workout.
