using iPXE with SOL - skothar - 2020-06-22 17:59

We use Serial over Lan (SOL) via BMC to connect to our systems. I have been experimenting with iPXE and have noticed that the SOL connection works OK until I use iPXE to to issue a boot command. For example

I have an active SOL connection to a system, and am able to load iPXE. When I enter the following boot commands, the SOL connection is lost.

<SOL connection established. Type these commands at the iPXE prompt>
iXPE> initrd ${boot-url}/initrd.gz
iPXE> chain ${boot-url}/vmlinuz net.ifnames=0 consoleblank=0 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200
iPXE> boot
<SOL connection lost, or, at least, output no longer directed to SOL>

I do not experience this type of behavior when using regular PXE.
