Oracle VM: pypxeboot Uses Absolute Pathname When Retrieving Files (Doc ID 1130423.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version: 2.2 and later   [Release: OVM22 and later ]
Linux x86
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

If no path is provided by the DHCP server, on Oracle VM server, pypxeboot tries to download files using an absolute path name. This behavior works for TFTP server on Linux. But it is not compatible with other platform like AIX, which expects relative file name when retrieving files.
