When i boot my RHL vm into pxe mode by changing it to boot from the network, the connection times out
From the sequence i read of the PXE process described [here]https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/em.121/e27046/appdx_pxeboot.htm#EMLCM121994 it seems the dhcp server is not replying to the request.
The DHCP server is on the same instance as the TFTP service and the DHCP service works to provide IPs to the VM's themselves. TFTP service wasnt running but i started it and got the same error.
Is there any other information i might provide to get an answer?
the dhcp server is assigning an IP now. I know this because the net0: IP is in the range of the DHCP service.
Update 2 This continues to evolve as i apply different solutions. I found other users with the same error had applied the Oracle Virtualbox extension pack because this is required for the PXE usage. I think this resolved one issue and exposed another. After installing that extension pack to my Virtualbox install i now get a TFTP open Timeout:
i checked the status of the tftp server with systemctl status tftp.socket and it shows active.
Not sure where the disconnect is now.
UPDATE 3: getting further down the road now. After opening UDP port 69 in the DHCP/TFTP server i now get to my PXE BOOT MENU but after i click on load from local disk I get FATAL :INT18: BOOT FAILURE
