Hi,
 
I am facing problem in configuring ip through uefi shell. (main purpose is to do uefi pxe boot on rhel6.5 pxe server)

You dont need to configure an ip to PXE boot? 

When you PXE boot there are DHCP requests that get made that are returned by the PXE sever that tell you where to boot from. No config is required on the EFI side. If the PXE boot does not work it is like an issue with the config of the PXE server. 

Thanks,

Andrew Fish

First I tried to configure ip (dhcp) from uefi shell, which is giving attached logs on dhcp sever, IP is not configured.
 
Using command:
 
Shell>Ifconfig s eth5 dhcp
After this, it doesnt get ip.

And
I configured IP on the same server which is running rhel (rhel6.5 OS netwotk stack), this means there is no issue in dhcp server setup.
How can I find out if issue is with uefi network stack or network card uefi driver? as network card legacy driver works fine.
 
 
Regards,
Ritul
