Hi..

I have the following setup:

2 * NW65 in cluster.

FS1: 192.168.100.100
FS2: 192.168.100.101

ZDM 6.5 installed on ZEN cluster volume. Cluster resource: 192.168.100.130

DHCP in cluster; 192.168.100.135

To make PXE cluster aware I did the following:

Copied to the sys volume on each server:

pxestart.ncf
pxestop.ncf
tftp.nlm
pdhcp.nlm
dts.nlm
pmap.nlm
zenpxe.nlm
pdhcp.ini
tftp.ini
dts.ini
Copied tftp to sys on each server.

PDHCP.ini: (on FS1) - different on fs2
TRANSACTION_SERVER_IP=192.168.100.100
TFTP_SERVER_IP=192.168.100.100
PDHCP_Server_IP=192.168.100.135

USE_DHCP_PORT=0
USE_BINL_PORT=1

Otherwise I made som small changes in the ncf files to make sure they load
the correct tings fromt the correct volumes.

I also copied zen:\zenworks\imaging to sys volume because of::
http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/se...?/10088670.htm

The ZEN is migrating fine between the two servers.

I made a server policy, which set Always display PXE menu. The policy is
associated to both servers and the zen cluster object. I have tried to
change this - but no luck
I have also setup the import and removal policy - and that works - so the
association is ok.

My problem is that I dont get the menu when PXE booting.

I have created a dummy scriptet image that writes something on the screen -
just for the testing.

My WS is a vmware 4.5.2 build 8848 - so PXE does not work (problem with
dinic.sys) - so Im using the PXE on disk. It gets the ip - but does not
think there is any work to do.
If I start using a cdrom with the imaging files (cdrom.iso + settings.txt) -
and choose automatic it does write my script on the screen. (same vmware
session). The image rules is checking on: Video contains "VMware"

So why dont I get PXE working?????

I have enclosed the zenpxe.log and the zimgdbg.log: (test with pxe on disk)
