It does not happen previously, just after we reboot the server than we facing this problem
PXE / kickstart installs needs to have the following services.

TFTP, NFS-HTTP-CDROM-FLOPPY, DHCP.

TFTP - This is needed to deliver the pxelinux.o binary for the boot process.
NFS or HTTP or CDROM or FLOPPY - This is needed to deliver the installation tree and kickstart file.
DHCP - This is needed for the ack request to inform the NIC card of the installation server.

If I understand you correctly you are using a netapp filer to export via NFS the installation tree and kickstart file. When you say you reboot the server, are you speaking of the DHCP or TFTP server?

This will help us to diagnose this issue.
