== NetBooting Across Subnets ==
 
 
 
Is well described here: http://www.bombich.com/mactips/nbas.html<br> It allows you to netboot a machine even if it isn't in the same subnet as the netboot server. The utility I use is Mike Bombich's NBAS: http://www.bombich.com/software/nbas.html<br>
 
 
 
#Download the utility and run it.
 
#From your Netboot admin get the following:
 
##netboot server's IP
 
##netboot set location
 
##netboot set name
 
##netboot image name
 
#I found that using the package method is best (NBAS allows you to create a package). Also, I strongly recommend checking the "next boot only" checkbox.
 
#Run the package on the machines that need to be netbooted. You can even deploy it via ARD on multiple machines.
 
 
 
== NetBoot Fails to Start with error Exception in doCommand nil key<br>  ==
 
 
 
*Cause: Check http://www.lsa.umich.edu/lsait/admin/mac/netboot-disabled.asp<br>
 
*Solutions: <br>
 
 
 
#stop NFS, refresh, wait for netboot to go green, start nfs. <br>
 
#http://support.apple.com/kb/TA24714?viewlocale=en_US<br>
 
#Reboot the server. <br>
 
#Move/delete /var/db/mountdtab<br>
 
#Personally, I moved all the nbi images to a backup folder, stopped Netboot, added one image, restarted netboot. WIll add the rest one at a time.<br>
 
 
 
== Error nfs_boot_getfh XXX failed with X<br>  ==
 
 
 
*Cause: The Netboot or the NFS service on the server seems to lose the connection to the storage device where the images are. <br>
 
*Solutions:<br>
 
 
 
#Turn off Netboot. Turn off NFS. Turn on NFS. Turn on Netboot.<br>
 
#http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=8191960 (recreate the NFS&nbsp;share point)<br>
 
#http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=8191960 -- I fixed my issues with the following steps: 1) Remove the share for existing NetBootClients0 and NetBootSP0. 2) Server Admin -&gt; Netboot -&gt; Settings -&gt; General -&gt; Select where to put images and client data: Unselect all checkboxes, then click Save. 3) Select the checkbox for the appropriate drives and click Save. 4) Start the Netboot service.<br>
 
#Reboot the server.<br>
 
 
 
== Losing Connection to the Fibre Channel<br>  ==
 
 
 
Rebooting the server fixes this. I haven't found a way to troubleshoot this without rebooting.
