Net Boot with Flash install

I have a blade 6000 chassis with a T6340 blade. The blade took a dump and I am trying to rebuild it with a Flash Archive. I am using net boot from an E2900 and the flash is located on a an array that is attached to my v245 management server. I can net boot and I can select flash install. When I put in the location ip:/path/to/.flar I receive an error stating "could not find archive.". I have NFS setup and running. I ran flar -i and the flar file is sound. I have been able to remote mount the flar in /tmp/root/flardir, and that hasn't worked.
I am so stuck and I have no idea what else to do.Smilie

How are you configuring the IP address of the netboot'd server? DCHP or static ip? Is this machine on the same subnet as the system holding the flash? Is the directory holding the flash file shared to this machine?

You have a number of other options if this netboot cannot be made to work (assuming the .flar file is healthy).
