This paper provides a brief introduction to the HTTP Boot mechanism, instructions on setting up the HTTP Boot server on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2, and step-by-step instructions on how to install an operating system on a Lenovo® ThinkSystem™ server using HTTP Boot.

This paper is intended for IT administrators. Readers are expected to have the basic knowledge of network deployment.
