RE: iPXE get custom dhcp option (option nisplus-domain string)
It worked! Smile

Added to (dhcpd.conf)
append dhcp-parameter-request-list 64;

inside my scope
option nisplus-domain "somehing_useful";

I don't understand what you're saying, sorry.

You can access the DHCP option via ${64:string}, and embed that in whatever command you like. If you want to use it as a web server address, for example, you can do something like

kernel http://${64:string}/boot.ipxe

What are you trying to do with the NIS+ server option, and what is the problem you are having?


Sorry! I was unclear.

We have a string inside the "option nisplus-domain string" that we want to add to our kickstart installer (as boot argument). So we can pick it up with cat /proc/cmdline, and then use that information by our post/pre kickstart scripts.
