PXE and TFTP server setup and troubleshooting tips

Use the following information to resolve issues you may encounter while setting up PXE/TFTP servers:

Running the configurator on a PXE server

If you are upgrading your BMC Server Automation components and need to run the configurator utility (as described in Migrating the database and persisting configuration data to the database) before upgrading the PXE server, ensure that Network Shell (NSH) is installed on the PXE server.

Setting debug logging for PXE and TFTP servers

To access more information about problems with PXE and TFTP servers, you can set the logging level for those servers to the debug level.
