This is a discussion on Wokstation hangs after "Boot Client" - TFTP timeout - HP UX ; Hello. I installed Ignite-UX-11-ALL_C.6.8.152 on a HP-UX 11.11 server and would like to use this system as a Ignite server; ie. I'd like to be able to install other workstations from this system.

I installed Ignite-UX-11-ALL_C.6.8.152 on a HP-UX 11.11 server and
would like to use this system as a Ignite server; ie. I'd like to
be able to install other workstations from this system. This server
is in a different subnet than the workstations are. Because of this,
I installed Ignite-UX on a system which is in the same subnet as the
to-be-installed workstation; this system should act as a boot helper.
After having installed Ignite-UX on both server and boot helper, I
started the Ignite-UX GUI on the server and selected Actions -> Boot
client. I entered the host name of a 2nd workstation (ie. *NOT* the
hostname from the boot helper). After a short time, the workstation
When I now have a look at the to-be installed workstation, I see some
Note: Retrying loadfile command...
* tftp error log follows:
tftp> tftp> tftp> tftp> tftp> Transfer timed out.
ERROR: Failed to read "INDEX" file from install server. Check that the install server's IP address is correct and the server has the "Ignite-UX" product loaded and is available via the tftp(1) service.
delete net default: gateway 10.233.16.250
Failed to startup networking, user interaction required.
But tftp *IS* working. In /etc/inetd.conf of the IgniteUX server,
[10:42:05 vz6tml@dewudb05:~] $ grep tftp /etc/inetd.conf
# Before uncommenting the "tftp" entry below, please make sure
# that you have a "tftp" user in /etc/passwd. If you don't
# have one, please consult the tftpd(1M) manual entry for
tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/tftpd tftpd -l /opt/ignite /var/opt/ignite
From yet another workstation, which is in the same subnet as the
to-be installed WS, I can tftp to the server just fine and fetch the
[11:12:01 vz6tml@tc56:/tmp] $ tftp dewudb05
tftp> get /var/opt/ignite/INDEX
Received 1933 bytes in 0.0 seconds
In /etc/opt/ignite/instl_boottab on the boot helper, I've got:
These IPs (and some more) are also in the instl_boottab on the Ignite
The Ignite server has 4 NICs but only 1 is activated.
When I go to the to-be installed workstation and enter
boot lan.10.233.16.156 install
I get to the install menu. 10.233.16.156 is the IP of the boot helper.
When booting a client from the Ignite UX GUI, how do I make the client
use a boothelper and specifically THIS boothelper?
Some more data:
On the boothelper:
