I use PXE server in order to download kickstart and to install Linux. After installation I saw that /etc/resolv.conf was created with the IP of the PXE server.

Why there is PXE server IP address in resolv.conf?

  • What are network parameters defined in kickstart config file (line starting with network).

resolv.conf can be modified by your DHCP server, which often times may be the PXE server. You have a pre-configured resolv.conf it can still be modified by DHCP and overwritten or modified.

This link has a good explanation.
