• When I try to boot to iPXE on any pc here I am getting the following error:


    I did a little digging and I found an error message in /var/log/log/fogimagesize.log:

    [10-04-17 6:00:27 pm] * Starting ImageSize Service

    The /images drive is on a 4TB drive:
    /dev/mapper/centos-images 3.6T 33M 3.6T 1% /images

    It has the right permissions I believe:
    drwxrwxrwx. 4 fog root 61 Oct 3 21:12 images

    This is running on a Centos VM on ESXI. I have 4GB Memory, A static ip set of and the web GUI appears to be working normally.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • Yup. Just as I thought. This AM I was able to register a host and right now I am backing up my first PC. Thanks for all the assistance!

  • I may be ok here. I reinstalled centos using the following walkthrough (I was apparently missing a couple of steps):


    I was able to register a host using a test vm I setup so tomorrow things should be a lot better.

    Thank you,

    @george1421 From your image of the dhcp settings, can we assume that is the IP address of your fog server?

    Also since you are passing undionly.kpxe to the pxe booting computer, is that target computer in bios (legacy) mode?

    Can you post a clear picture of the iPXE error taken with a mobile phone? I’m not sure what’s up with the link in the OP, but I need to see what the actual error is.

    At this point I’m not worried about any image size stuff. This is a pure dhcp/pxe issue in my mind (also as Tom posted).

  • @tom-elliott Yes sir. See https://imgur.com/a/Sxm45

    Thank you for your time.

    FOG Image Size is not the issue here. I’m guessing you’re attempting to capture an image right now?

    The problem is TFTP, do you have your DHCP setup to send requests to the FOG Server and at the filename undionly.kpxe (or whatever file you’re attempting to use?)
