SUSE Linux system prerequisites


SUSE Linux system prerequisites

The following system prerequisites apply only to SUSE Linux systems:

  • Install the following RPM packages (unless they are installed already):

    • nfs-utils

    • dhcp-base

    • dhcp-server

    • inetd

    • tftp

  • Enable the tftp service by doing the following:

    • Edit the /etc/inetd.conf file and uncomment the tftp line.

    • Start the service by running the following command:

      /etc/init.d/inetd restart

  • Modify the /etc/dhcpd.conf file to define the networks it serves. You do not have to define host information; hosts are added and removed as needed by the Bare Metal Restore software. The following is an example configuration:

    log-facility local7;
    ddns-update-style none;
    ignore unknown-clients;
    subnet netmask {  
    default-lease-time            600;  
    max-lease-time                7200;  
    option domain-name            "";  
    option broadcast-address;  
    option domain-name-servers,;  
    option routers      ;

    To verify the /etc/dhcpd.conf file syntax, restart the daemon and ensure that it starts successfully by running:

    /etc/init.d/dhcpd restart
