Help with 11.2 PXE

Just upgraded from fully patched 10.3.4 too 11.2, everything is ok except pxe boot no longer works for workstation. Workstation will pxe boot, loa the linux kernal, but fails when identifying hardware on all workstations. After researching tid's, am convinced there is a mismatch of the initrd, linux kernal and the updates folder, but can find no info on proper folder structure and what files should be in shared tftp vs preboot\bin. Where can I get the source files for just imaging, and where do they need to be for tftp pxe boot? Thx in advance, Dana

Re: Help with 11.2 PXE

Monthly Update 2 will provide updated Drivers as well as other fixes.
There are general code updates along with driver updates, which is why
there are not just driver updates.

11.2.1 may ship next week, so you amy want to hold off updating till then.

However, There is a good chance that a change in behavior for 11.x is
your actual issue.
