problems installing OS on new install servers (bootstrapping install servers in POPs)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I have created new install server VMs in our POPs but I have problems installing an OS on the install servers, bootstrapping them from other existing install_servers.

I have already done debugging but did not write it down. I think I need netops to check for ACLs but first need to add some details here.

OS has been installed on all 3 servers.

Reason was wrong tty file in DHCP (thanks @Papaul for pointing it out) and some remnants from a previous debug session.
