Has anyone else tried the combination of netbooting a KA650 with a DELQA
ethernet device? Roar's bootloader MOPloads fine, and it even starts
running okay. From there things appear to fall somewhat apart. I've only
just begun to look at this, and likely won't get much further until the
morning, so I thought I'd fish around for anyone else who's tried this.
The bootloader does manage send out a rarp request. The rarpd on my
bootserver picks up on the requests coming from the VAX, but it doesn't
appear that the VAX is getting anything back. Again, I haven't analyzed
the net traffic closely yet to know exactly what's going on. The
bootserver is working fine for other systems on the net, including a
MicroVAX II with DEQNA. I've double-checked the name services as well at
the /etc/ethers file on the bootserver and everything is in good order.
The error on the VAX side is reported as:
No response for RARP request
Unknown error: code 60
Basically, I'm looking to hear from anyone else who has done netbooting
from a KA65x w/DELQA or DEQNA, or anyone who's netbooted say a KA630
w/DELQA. Just trying to get an idea of where things might be breaking.
