Hi all,

until now we used FAI with a bootp-server only for teh FAI-clients.
While updating our FAI-Server to the recent release we want to switch over to dhcp, using our Windows DHCP-Server.
On the DHCP-Server I configured the options "017 Stammverzeichnis" and "066 Hostname des Startservers" in addition to that I tryed with configuring "tftp-server" "bootserver" "rootserver" "server-name" "next-server" as user-defined options but it ends up always with the same error:

Booting the FAI-Client with my newly-build fai-bootfloppy some options are not set: bootserver, rootserver and teh ip of the server teh client got his DHCP-lease from. Rootpath ist seet correctly like it ist configured in "017 Stammverzeichnis".

Does anybody use Windows DHCP-Server together with FAI?
Which options must be set?

Thanks in advance for any hint
