Network bootable image

Hi,

Is kernel.dmp a network bootable image? If so, can I use it for normal booting? Please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Not in the conventional sense; you can only network boot Singularity using the specific procedure described in the "Building and Running Singularity RDK 1.1" PDF. Although we take advantage of PXE to begin the network boot process, the rest of our network boot is done using a custom boot daemon using TFTP, and not using a conventional network boot server. Please read that PDF for more information, and let me know if you have any questions.
