SOLVED Cleint wont boot from PXE file
Hi i need help,
if set up a Fog server using cent os 7 i followed every step in the dokumentation.
my problem ist that the clients download the file via tftp but then suddenly boot into windows ?
The client even shows “MBP File download sucessfully” but doest start.
i testet the download on my linux workstation and it worked fine.
The DHCP (Windows) ist in a other VLAN than the client and Fog server both the fog and client are in the same VLAN.
Optin 66 and 67 are set in the DHCP.
any ideas ?!!
OUTPUT on the client
Start PXE over IPv4
Station Ip addres is 172.xxx.xx.xxx
Server Ip addres is (fog server addres)
MBP filename ist undionly.kpxe
MBP filesize is 97003 Bytes
Downloading MBP file…
MBP File Downloaded sucessfully
I Fixed it thanks for your Help guys.
First yes i needed the UEFI.
Than we uesed a Network bond on centos wich didnt worked so we del it and now it works fine
Start PXE over IPv4
I am fairly sure this is an UEFI based system form the messages you posted. So you need to use
ipxe.efibinary instead of the
See here on how to setup a Windows DHCP server to hand out the correct binaries to the right clients: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=BIOS_and_UEFI_Co-Existence#Using_Windows_Server_2012_.28R1_and_later.29_DHCP_Policy
@alphaex Ok lets grab a pcap of the pxe booting process to see what the client is being told. For this process we need to have the fog server, dhcp server, and target computer on the same IP subnet. Then follow these instructions: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/9673/when-dhcp-pxe-booting-process-goes-bad-and-you-have-no-clue
Upload the pcap here and we will take a look at it to see if we can find what is going wrong.
@george1421 its the same Fof enviroment but not it works i dont know why i did nothing but not it works fine ??!? im happy with it thanks for your help
@alphaex Is this a new FOG environment? So your boot messages say that the file name is ipxe.efi? Changing the boot file name should not generate that error message unless you mistyped the name.
@george1421 uff sorry i misspelled it NBP ^^
i found out my self that i need the uefi and i did it but now i get pxe-e18 Server response timeout error
Are you sure it says MBP or is it NBP? The structure of the iPXE boot messages might indicate that you are booting a uefi based computer. If that is the case you need to send the right boot kernel name for UEFI, which is ipxe.efi to the target computer. UEFI based computers can’t normally boot BIOS based boot loaders like undionly.kpxe.
