I have a functioning PXE configuration that allows to boot to an installation by Kickstart or rescue, both via RHEL6 media.
I'm trying to add DBAN to the mix to make for a more complete solution for our needs. I have it set up to boot and it will load, but it keeps failing with
DBAN finished with non-fatal errors. Check the log for more informatoin. Hardware clock operation start date: Fri Jun 14 11:27:50 2013 Hardware clock operation finish date: Fri Jun 14 11:28:00 2013 * ERROR /dev/sda (process crash) Press and hold the power button to shutdown.
I can get it to load via CD without problem.
The PXE menu entry that I have is
label wipe kernel /images/dban/dban-226.bzi append initrd=/images/dban/dban-226.bzi root=/dev/ram0 init=rc
I've also tried without the root= or init= options with the same result.
I'm not even entirely sure about those options. Not much that I've found online gives much detail or explanation. One thing I know for sure, is that right now I don't want to enable the autonuke option. I simply want to load up the interactive method.
Has anyone been able to make this work?
EDIT: Potentially pertinent information The server that I'm testing this on (and, in fact, 99% of our servers) are VMs running on VMware ESXi. The CD works when I attach it as an ISO to the VMware console and boot to it.
