Hi Everyone,

 

I was wondering if I can boot newer machine to using older server OS X 10.6.8. I have Xserve which is running 10.6.8 and it is running following services:

 

AFP

NetBoot

NFS

SMB

Web

 

And I have created a base image using newer hardware and then used SIU utility in newer machine and OS X 10.8 to create NetBoot.nbi folder. After creating this folder then I have copied it on my server at this location:

 

/Server HD/Library/NetBoot/NetBootSP0/

 

And inside of Server Admin, I can see newest image and it has set to using following setting:

 

Enable

Diskless

Index 564

Architecture Intel

Protocol NFS

 

After doing all the settings, I have ensured that Netboot service is running.

 

Now when I set my client to boot from netboot (using bless command and server IP address), it won't boot at all. Can anyone please point me in some direction where to start troubleshooting for this problem?

 

Thanks,
