 Customer is trying to jumpstart a client using a Variable Length Subnet Masks (VLSM) (i.e., ect..) . This will not work as described in BUG 15204549

This is because the Jumpstart server has a VLSM configured for it's IP address subnet mask and thus cannot communicate the the client since it cannot pass VLSM information.



 The work around to this issue is to use  DHCP or wanboot but customer states this is not possible .
