PXE boot halt after 1.5.2 upgrade



  • I upgrade our FOG server to the 1.5.2 version today, but after the upgrade, PXE boot halt, and won’t pass to start the computer.

    Attached image is what I see on the client screen.

    Here is the message log on the server:

    Does anyone know what might be the problem? This is affecting all our lab computers now, if I reboot any of them it will stop on this screen0_1526332290541_IMG_6316.JPG .

    Thanks,

  • I’d recommend running nothing except FOG on your FOG server. We’re not able to troubleshoot integration with other 3rd party software, that’s on you.



  • We have a separate DHCP server, the fog server only provide PXE boot. I can try disable firewall. But because I don’t want to affect the lab usage, I have already roll back to the 1.4.0 version, which works fine with our current settings.

    @hongyun Is this FOG server doing more functions than we think?

    I see OpsView and avahi messages in the log.

    @hongyun It appears that from your initial post that the linux firewall is turned on some how.

    May 14 14:02:21 foggy kernel: FWALL: IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:70:71:bc:1f:ff:b6:08:00 SRC=0.0.0.0 DST=255.255.255.255 LEN=576 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=20 ID=1 PROTO=UDP SPT=68 DPT=67 LEN=556

    This message is basically saying that a dhcp request is being blocked by the firewall. One of the prerequisites for installing fog is to disable the linux firewall on the fog server as well as setting selinux to permissive. Without these two settings in place fog will not work.



  • @developers @moderators anyone see this before?

  • @hongyun Check the apache error log, see if you find any errors from the time when you’re trying to network boot a system.



  • No, all the systems. We have computers with only Linux or dual boot.



  • Does it only affect the dual booting systems?
