Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Troubleshooting Guide

DHCP Service Conflict With N1 Grid Service Provisioning System

If you are using both the N1 System Manager and the Sun N1TM Service Provisioning System with the OS provisioning plug-in, you must choose which product you want to use for OS deployment for a given target set of servers. Based on the product chosen for OS deployment, you must ensure that the DHCP service supplied by the other product is manually shut down (as the root user) using operating system commands. Failure to shut the service down might result in unreliable behavior of OS deployment operations as well as potential network related problems.
