This is What Sells Dells!

(Ticket Opened)…

The problem is definitely in something which changed in the PXEs.
We have a 460, 465 and a 685 and they all do the same thing – the PXE attempts to talk to the DHCP relay and not the PXE server.
As far as versions and hardware are concerned –

HP BL465c G7:
PXESelect is 2.102.517.7
BIOS is A19 (12/20/2010)
NICs is HP NC551i “Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb”

HP BL460c G7:
PXE-2.0 BIOS v3.102.517.7
BIOS I27 (12/01/2010)
NIC is HP NC553i 10Gb 2-port FlexFabric Adapter

HP BL685c G7:
PXE-2.0 BIOS 2.102.517.7
BIOS is A20 (12/20/2010)
NICs is HP NC551i “Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb”

Lets have a different technician take a shot at this one.


What the Hell. Seriously.

Tertullian was born in Carthage somewhere about 160 A.D.  He was a
pagan, and he abandoned himself to the lascivious life of his city
until about his 35th year, when he became a Christian .... To him is
ascribed the sublime confession: Credo quia absurdum est (I believe
because it is absurd).  This does not altogether accord with historical
fact, for he merely said:

 "And the Son of God died, which is immediately credible because
 it is absurd.  And buried he rose again, which is certain
 because it is impossible."

Thanks to the acuteness of his mind, he saw through the poverty of
philosophical and Gnostic knowledge, and contemptuously rejected it.

And so on. I was trying to connect from my XOrg host running KDE to a Sun (Solaris 7) box running X11R3 with CDE. I have no idea how jesus got involved.
