I am trying to get a BL460c to PXE boot.
I can configure a static ipaddress on it and ping the PXE server but when I try to boot from it the PXE boot times out.
The chassis is a c7000 with virtual connect modules and f/w as follows...
OA F/W = 2.25
VC Enet module F/W = 1.21
Is there any documentation on how to configure this?

What switches are used in the network ? You need to enable portfast on Cisco switches.
Also consider upgrading the OA/ILO/VC to latest by the firmware best practices. At least VC has tons of fixes compared to 1.21

Thanks for your reply's.
The Blades are indeed G6 and the network switches are Cisco.
I will schedule some time for the F/w upgrades and see what happens.
Thanks again for your time.

DEFINITELY upgrade the firmware - enclosure, blade, VC, and ILO2. Ouch, these are old.
Since these are so old, recommended order:
VC (since before v1.34)
Server blades (including ILO2)
