To begin with, I started powering up nodes sequentially so as to fill the DHCP table in order (i.e. host10, host11, host12, etc.). When I brought the node up in static mode, I made the following changes to move to DHCP:

  • In /etc/network/interfaces, I listed this as the only iface line: iface eth0 inet dhcp
  • In /etc/yp.conf, I set the NIS server to host10 like so: domain extremeit.net server 192.168.1.10
  • In /etc/fstab, I changed host200 to host10 in the NFS mount for /home.
