i have had a running ignite server for 2 years, it suddenly getting an error and i cant get it to boot. I have checked tftp and it works, the nbp.efi is configured... but i am still getting the following errors
Retrieving File Size
PXE-E18: Timeout. Server did not respond.
Exit status code: Invalid Parameter
please let me know if anyone has any ideas or what to check next.

Do you use dbprofile on the client?
Otherwise there could be another PXE server on the network?
Hope this helps!

From an alternate HP-UX client, try the bootpquery to the intended Ignite-UX server. If you get a positive response, it will rule out bootp related challenges at the Ignite-UX server.
Next, check in your Ignite-UX server's /etc/bootptab file, if you have the MAC address of the client that is receiving the PXE-boot errors.
