NOTE: I've actually managed to get my MD to boot and the diskless image to be created.  However, I want to reply to the questions in this thread before leaving it and starting a new one (I have new problems....whooooopeeee!).

Are you able to have other devices on your internal network receive (192.168.80.0/24) DHCP addresses and connect to the core? If yes, then your cores NIC seems to work okay.

Couldn't before installing the r8168 driver.  Now I can.

If you can connect to the core, check if dcerouter is running on the core,

Code: [Select]
ps ax|grep DCERouter.log|grep -v grep

Not running.  I assume I can manually start it - I will research.

and have a look in /home/coredump/1 dir if there are any coredumps in there.

I have three core dumps from a few days ago.  Should I inspect them?

I was able to get my MD booted after I installed the newest snapshot of 0810.  I still had to run startup-script.sh, but the MD booted and kicked off the diskless image build - nice!
