I am working on setting up a PXE based build system in our environment.
Short description on how it will work, server will boot into network, get an IP address and PXE server details from DHCP server and then select the rebuild option in the PXE menu. Then, it should download the kickstart file over http. Here is the problem, I noticed that in my couple of test servers this step is failing to download the Kickstart file.
Few additional points:
There is no problem in the same server that is getting rebuilt successfully (in the same setup). And even the problematic servers is working on a sudden. I am able to download the kickstart file using wget.
I tried looking around but could not find anything amiss. Out of my three test servers, two of them are Dell PowerEdge R710 and the third one is a desktop. Dell PowerEdge server and the desktop started having this issue. Attached a screenshot on how to download the kickstart file. For troubleshooting, I tried changing 'inst.ks' to 'inst.repo' in the PXE menu file and it still fails.
Let me know if something is not clear. Any pointers will be helpful.
I did not find the right solution from the Internet.
