Right now, I have an Scientific Linux blade connected to the internet on eth3, and connected to a 48 port Cisco switch on eth2. This Cisco switch is connected to the eth2 of 24 blank blades (which are not connected to the internet).
I want to be able to assign the 24 blades private IPs based on their hostname so my main blade can connect to them, while keeping them fenced off from the internet. However, because there are so many, I also want to install kickstarted CentOS on them via PXE from the main blade. To do this I would need them to be assigned an IP first via DHCP, right?
So how would I go about doing all this? Any pointers would be appreciated.
