Any have a working RHEL7 HTTP/Static install configuration
Hello all.

I'm wondering if anyone has a working menu.ipxe they can share that will properly boot via HTTP and install the OS. My old RHEL6 menu.ipxe is not working with RHEL7.{1-3} version.

Here is the error message I'm seeing in the logs obtained from the server itself.

[ 68.746757] localhost dracut-initqueue[601]: anaconda fetching kickstart from http://xxx.xxx.x.xx/ks/ks/html/boot.php?...-initqueue[601]: % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current

I'm hoping it a simple change from RHEL6 to RHEL7.

Thanks

The example script at http://ipxe.org/howto/rh_san#creating_th...ion_script works. (The page is about installing to a SAN target, but the installation script is just a generic install-via-HTTP script that can install to either SAN or to local disk.)

Thanks for the reply Michael! I found out from Redhat that it's a known bug in 7.1-3 and will be fixed in 7.4. So I just have to wait or build my own boot dvd to get it to work.

Thanks again.
