I have an i386 and an alpha machine connected together on their network
interfaces. I'm simulating a situation where the root partition fails on the
alpha for some reason, yet all the other partitions are okay. So, i've got
the alpha to boot from the i386 machine fine. It's just unable to mount the
root file system. I think it's a networking issue, but i can't figure out
why this setup doesn't work.
The rc.conf on the i386:
/etc/hosts on i386:
10.0.0.2 sombra1 sombra1
10.0.0.4 fileserv1 fileserv1
/etc/bootptab on i386:
/etc/exports on i386:
/home/me/sombra1/root -mapall=root:wheel sombra1
^- That's not actually a partition, but a directory, however it mounts fine
on the local machine via NFS.
/etc/ifconfig.tlp on i386:
inet 10.0.0.4 netmask 255.255.255.0
/home/me/sombra1/root/etc/rc.conf on i386:
I think i'm missing something basic with the networking setup, but i just
don't see what it is. Any ideas?
