Now that Christmas break is here I can get some work done around the lab (btw, if anyone has successfully got network home folders on OS X Server working drop me a line, would you?). Is there a reason i am missing why my 3 remaining BW G3 towers won't see the network install image I have set up? All other machines identify it right away, but the g3's only say network start and never locate it.<br><br>Look forward to your thoughts!<br><br>
As the other post noted, if they are on different subnets, or there is a setting wrong on the switch the network install image wont be found. <br><br><br>However, I have been overly annoyed with how poor netboot and network install work in general. They have more problems than they are worth. Apple really needs to put more money into its server division.<br><br>But, give this app a shot, even if it is on the same subnet, this app sometimes fixes the problems.<br>http://www.bombich.com/software/nbas.html<br><br>--------<br>Ryan
Yes, I checked out the three machiens and they are on the same subnet as all others...it just seems to be effecting the B&W G3's. The other machines (g4 graphite, G4 Mirror Door, G5) all see the network install image easily. I'm stumped!<br><br>

I'm having the same trouble at the moment. One thing that I've found out is that the B/W G3's use a different system of netbooting than later model macs. This earlier version is apparently a bit more finicky. I haven't found a resolution to the problem yet, but when I get it figured out, I'll post back what I find out.<br><br>
