PXE-E53: No boot filename received ERROR



  • I have a server running EXSI 6.5 with 2 VM’s, where one of them is a Ubuntu 18.04.1 TLS Server with FOG Project configured.

    My DHCP Server is and Asus Router RT-AC68U.

    DNSMASQ is configured as follow:

    # Don't function as a DNS server:
    port=0
    
    # Log lots of extra information about DHCP transactions.
    log-dhcp
    
    # Set the root directory for files available via FTP.
    tftp-root=/tftpboot
    
    # Disable re-use of the DHCP servername and filename fields as extra
    # option space. That's to avoid confusing some old or broken DHCP clients.
    dhcp-no-override
    
    # The boot filename, Server name, Server Ip Address
    dhcp-boot=undionly.kpxe,,192.168.1.120
    
    # PXE menu.  The first part is the text displayed to the user.  The second is the timeout, in seconds.
    pxe-prompt="Booting FOG Client", 10
    
    dhcp-range=192.168.1.120,proxy
    

    It’s all installed and configured and I still get a PXE-E53: No boot filename received ERROR on the clients.

    What can I do to solve this?

    Your dnsmasq configuration is not complete. It only addresses bios based systems. My recommendation would be to follow and use the dnsmasq configuration from this tutorial exactly. Don’t just patch your’s to match: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/12796/installing-dnsmasq-on-your-fog-server
