PXE Boot the Dell Diagnostics

Get Diagnostics Package

It seems that this process might be a bit easier to do on Windows (download the .exe file), as you won't have the end-of-line issues with the script file, but I don't have a Windows box handy... Note that an actual bootable image file is not included in the package, but can be created from the package, so you need a machine with the proper OS to run the package on to create the image (what the heck were they thinking?!?).

ftp://ftp.dell.com/diags package Dell_32-Bit-Diagnostics_5103-1_R176884.exe

Run the "installer" to create the bootable image. Put the image where it can be served by the TFTP server.

Adding to ROCKS

I didn't get the hostname wildcard "%" described in the documentation to work...

bash-3.00# rocks add host pxeaction c-102-4 action='dd32' command='kernel dell/diag' 
bash-3.00# rocks set host pxeboot c-102-4 action="dd32"

Monitor remotely
