Slow PXe Boot


V

verukins

Hi,
I have recently taken delivery of some dell precision 380's for a
client. When booting to PXE to build these machine from RIS it is
horrendously slow - takes 30 seconds to get a DHCP address, another 10m
minutes just to come up with a logon screen.

The machines uses broadcom gigabit nics....

anyone have a fix/work around for this?

Try to set the switch-ports to a static speed (like Fast Ethernet) and
static duplex-setting, disabling the auto-negotiation.

Regards,
Hendrik
