After starting an OSIM installation for a PXE client, the PXE client has reported a TFTP file not found error.
e.g. Error on the PXE client: Stream Zip get file: #MPCPATH#/mages/WXPPRO/WXPPRO/WXPPRO.caz
NO DEBUG OUTPUT

Boot server and Image Prepare System are running on the same machine.
Default OSIM TFTP has been configured.
The issue is caused by a mismatch between the directory tree (used by the OSIM share method) and the <image name>.caz file (used by the OSIM TFTP method) are available on the boot server.
1. Please create the <image name>.caz file on the Image Prepare System by running the following command:createOSImage -z <image name>
This will create the
#MPCPATH#/mages/<image name>/<image name>/<image name>.caz file,
which will be used by the OSIM TFTP download method.
Unless the boot server and the Image Prepare System are not on the same system, sdbsswitch -t creates one <image>.caz file for every image and removes the directory tree. sdbsswitch -s will create the directory tree and remove <image>.caz
When the boot server and the Image Prepare System are on the same system then OSIM share is the default of the createOSImage command. Then a directory tree but no <image>.caz file will be created. So when you are using OSIM TFTP download on this boot server, it might be necessary to create such an <image name>.caz file manually by running the command:
createOSImage -z <image name>
Now both the directory tree (used by the OSIM share method) and the <image name>.caz file (used by the OSIM TFTP method) are available on the boot server.
