DHCP and OS Provisioning

I got a question about an OS provisioning error:

"When I create an Oracle Solaris 10 OSP profile, I get a "DHCP is not configured" error on the Select Networks step. What do I do about this?"


Well, it depends on what role you have. If you're an Ops Center Admin, you can go into Administration, select a Proxy Controller, and set DHCP up. There are two ways that you can do this - you can either configure DHCP on your Proxy Controllers:

Or, alternatively, if you have an existing DHCP server that you'd prefer to use, you can configure Ops Center to use it:


These tasks both require admin privileges, so you might need to bug your admin if you don't have that role yourself. But, either way, once you have DHCP set up you'll be able to do OS provisioning.

Comments:

Should the dhcp service be mandatory if we are provisioning with WANBoot?

Guest,

No, you don't have to configure DHCP if you're provisioning with WANBoot.
