Configuring the PXE Function of a NIC

Configuring the PXE Function of a NIC

The topic describes how to configure the pre-boot execution environment (PXE) function of a network interface card (NIC). The Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) function allows a server to boot over a network.

Scenarios

Configure the PXE boot function of a NIC to enable the server to boot over a network. This topic uses the Boot screen of the RH5885H V3 server as an example. This screen may vary according to the server model. For details about this screen, see 4.6 .

Impact on the System

This operation has no adverse impact on the system.

Prerequisites

Conditions

You have accessed basic input/output system (BIOS). For details, see 2.1 .

Data

Data preparation is not required for this operation.

Procedure

  1. Click the Boot tab.

    The Boot screen appears, as shown in Figure 2-10.

    Figure 2-10 Boot screen

    NOTE:
    • PXE Only is available only for the E9000 server, and is unavailable for rack servers.
    • PXE3 Configuration and PXE4 Configuration are available only for the E9000 server and the RH8100 V3 server in single-system mode, and are unavailable for other rack servers.
    • In RH8100 V3 single-system mode, PXE1 Configuration and PXE2 Configuration are respectively available for Port 1 and Port 2 in HFC-2, and PXE3 Configuration and PXE4 Configuration are respectively available for Port 1 and Port 2 in HFC-1. Other ports cannot be configured with PXE.
    • In RH8100 V3 dual-system mode, PXE1 Configuration and PXE2 Configuration in system A are respectively available for Port 1 and Port 2 in HFC-2, and PXE3 Configuration and PXE4 Configuration in system B are respectively available for Port 1 and Port 2 in HFC-1. Other ports cannot be configured with PXE.

  2. Slect Network, and press Enter.
  3. Select any of the following options based on actual requirements, and press Enter.

    • Do not launch: disables NICs from booting from PXE. If this option is selected, the LOMs and NICs connected to the server cannot boot from PXE.
    • UEFI only: enables NICs to boot from PXE in UEFI mode only. The NICs must support UEFI boot.
    • Legacy only: enables NICs to boot from PXE in Legacy mode only.
    • UEFI first: This option varies depending on the server boot mode.
      • If the server boot mode is Dual Boot (Legacy and UEFI modes), select this option to enable NICs to boot from PXE in UEFI mode preferentially. The NICs must support UEFI boot.
      • If the server boot mode is UEFI, select this option to enable NICs to boot from PXE in UEFI mode.
      • If the server boot mode is Legacy, this parameter is invalid.
    • Legacy first: This option varies depending on the server boot mode.
      • If the server boot mode is Dual Boot (Legacy and UEFI modes), select this option to enable NICs to boot from PXE in Legacy mode preferentially.
      • If the server boot mode is Legacy, select this option to enable NICs to boot from PXE in Legacy mode.
      • If the server boot mode is UEFI, this parameter is invalid.

  4. Set PXE for NICs.

    • To set PXE for a LOM, perform the following steps:
      1. Select the network port to be configured, for example PXE1 Configuration, and press Enter.
      2. In the dialog box displayed, select Enable and press Enter.
        NOTE:

        To disable PXE for a network port, select Do not launch and press Enter.

    • To set PXE for a NIC connected to the server, perform the following steps:
      1. If the server is connected with an 82599, I350, or X540 NIC, select the network port, for example Offboard_82599 PXE Configuration, and press Enter.

        Figure 2-11 shows an example.

        Figure 2-11 Offboard_82599 PXE Configuration
      2. In the dialog box displayed, select Enable and press Enter.
        NOTE:

        To disable PXE for a NIC, select Do not launch and press Enter.

  5. Press F10.

    The Save configuration and exit? dialog box appears.

  6. Select Yes and press Enter to save the setting.
