  1. NFS export the directory /var/opt/ignite/clients so you can control the installation process from the server and store configuration files and manifest information on the server. On successful completion of the setup_server command, the message Program completed successfully. will be displayed.

    If you wish, you may safely complete this section before “Create the HP-UX OE Configuration Information on the Ignite-UX Server”.

    # /opt/ignite/lbin/setup_server -n

  2. Enable the bootpd daemon.

    1. Edit the /etc/inetd.conf file:

      # vi /etc/inetd.conf

    2. Remove the comment character (#) from the bootpd line:

      bootps dgram udp wait root /usr/lbin/bootpd bootpd

    3. Save the /etc/inetd.conf file and exit vi:


    4. Make the inetd daemon reread the /etc/inetd.conf file:

      # inetd -c


    An overview of how network booting works is available in the section on making configuration decisions for Ignite-UX servers in the Ignite-UX Administration Guide, and in the Ignite-UX Installation Booting white paper. Both documents can be found at http://docs.hp.com/en/IUX/infolib.html

NOTE: Your Ignite-UX server is now set up but is not enabled to install any systems. See Chapter 2 to add clients to an Ignite-UX server and then install HP-UX on them.
