we have multiple dhcp server and one tftp server. By default. new hosts will connect tftp to the dhcp server, not to the central tftp server.

# PXE Handoff.
next-server <central tftp server>;

  • Category set to Foreman modules
  • Release deleted (1.13.1)

The dhcp module already exposes this parameter, and it can already be partly overridden (to interfaces of the DHCP server installed with foreman_proxy) by changing the foreman-proxy-dhcp-interface setting.

However when using Foreman, the :tftp_servername smart proxy setting is used to determine the next-server value for DHCP reservations created by Foreman, overriding this setting.

Please don't set the (target) release field.

DHCP reservations created by Foreman, overriding this setting.

I want to use Foreman discover for new bare metal. The IP that I want to configure is not an Interface IP of the DHCP server.
