[ipxe-devel] Telling iPXE to only take certain DHCP offers

Hi,

Is there any way to tell iPXE to only accept DHCP offers that have the "boot 
file name" set?


Concerns a scenario in which there are two DHCP servers active within the same 
network.

1) One that hands out IP-addresses to everyone for normal network use, and 
whose settings cannot be changed.

2) One that is meant to perform network installations. It only hands out offers 
(with the boot file name set) to the MAC-addresses of computers that needs to 
be provisioned.


Want iPXE to ignore the offers from server 1.



Yours sincerely,

Floris Bos
