Hello everybody,

the dhcp option next-server allows to be an ip address or hostname. I have a
setup here I would like to chainboot a kernel with arguments that include
${next-server}. However as soon as I do that I get the ip address of the
next-server, which does not help me as I have a match a http virtual host. Is
it passible to get ${next-server} as a hostname or are there any reasons not
to get it?
Best regards,
