Hello all, first time linux user here,
after 2 weeks of fiddling with installing, reinstalling, connecting, unconnecting, reconnecting... i still can not get any diskless media directors installed. I dont think it is my router/core having conflicts.
I have my
Cable Modem connected to a --> wireless router which is then connected to my --> Core/Hybrid on the "external network card" and then I have my "internal network card" connected to a ethernet switch which i have connected another comp, which is supposed to be the MD.
I've also disconnected the wireless router to see if that was the problem, and I dont think it is. Whenever I connect a comp to the internal network and do a "network boot" (by switching my boot profile in my bios), my CORE does not automatically recognize anything. I would have thought that when the computer tries to access the DHCP server it would recognize something, but nada. I am thinking maybe it's the network booting not network booting, but I've tried it on my intended media director, I tried it on 2 different laptops (more current) that have network boot options. Now I am spend. Not sure what else to do at the moment, so if anyone has any suggestions, please throw it my way.
