The reconstructed DHCP packets passed to pxelinux.0 (or to any other PXE NBP) give priority to netdevice-specific settings, since the PXE API is implicitly requesting the DHCP packet for a single network device. This means that a setting in the "net0" scope will take priority over a setting in the top-level scope.

You probably want to do something like:

set netX/next-server
set netX/filename bootfile
chain tftp://${next-server}/pxelinux.0


Ah! I should have thought of that.

I'll give it a shot later today and update with my results Smile

Post testing:

It worked as described ... dhcp set the details for net0, and manually setting the details for net0 let me override the dhcp supplied values.

Many thanks mate
