PXE only Config [OT]

I tried adding:

option dhcp-parameter-request-list 54,60,67;

to the client config (it didn't like the colons as a separator for the options so I tried commas instead).

But it did not alter the behavior.  Still got "no free leases" and no packet was sent.

I was hoping it may work based on this from the DHCP-options man page.

" This  can  be  used  to force a client to take
         options that it hasn't requested, and it can also be used  to  tailor
         the response of the DHCP server for clients that may need a more lim-
         ited set of options than those the server would normally return."

But no such luck.  Any other ideas.

        At first glance, that's right.

        IIRC, if the client doesn't explicitly include an option list,
        any list _configured_ on the server will be used instead of the
        servers _built-in_ default.
