Issue with the "Deploy Image" option



  • Hey All,

    I am having an issue with my current FOG setup that just somehow broke in the last day or so. We are currently on 1.4.4. Everything has been working great, but just today the “Deploy Image” option returns this error:

    http://ipaddress/fog/service/ipxe/boot.php... ok
    Unrecognised option "-W"
    Usage:
    
      item [-m:--menu <menu>] [-k:--key <key>] [-d:--default] [-g:--gap] [<label> [<text>]]
    
    see http://ipxe.org/cmd/item for further information
    Could not boot: Invalid argument (http://ipxe.org/1c162202)
    Could not boot: Invalid argument (http://ipxe.org/1c162202)
    Chainloading failed, hit 's' for the iPXE shell; reboot in 10 seconds
    

    Any ideas on this one?

    Thanks!

    item -Windows101809-Office2013 - Windows 10 1809 - Office 2013 (209)

    I suspect these. Remove the dashes from the image names and see what happens.

    More precisely its probably this image name :-Windows101809-Office2013



  • @george1421 You are the man! That was it! I made the changes and the menu came up. It was the - before the Windows 10 1809 - Office 2013 image

    @Chris-Whiteley That one is saying the user id and password in the url I provided are incorrect. You need to update those with the user ID and Password that works for imaging on your FOG server. I entered the FOG defaults of fog and password.

    @Chris-Whiteley Ah I missed the Deploy Image from the iPXE menu.

    Here is a different url to call: http://<ipaddress>/fog/service/ipxe/boot.php?mac0=00:00:00:00:00:00&arch=x86_64&username=fog&password=password&qihost=1

    Update the ipaddress and the username and password that is appropriate for your installation.



  • @george1421 I will clarify…This only happens from the fog menu if I choose “Deploy Image”. It won’t do it if I kick a task off from the web, or choose the image now option from the “Full Host Reg”. Does that change where you want to go with this?


  • Moderator

    @Chris-Whiteley OK that menu looks good. Now in your OP it says you were deploying an image and that error is thrown? If so schedule a deploy image task and record the mac address of the host you are going to deploy to. Take that mac address and replace the 00:00:00:00:00:00 mac address in the url with the mac address of the target system you were deploying to. Lets look at that ipxe menu.



  • @george1421 Here is the code:

    @Chris-Whiteley Well that’s a problem.

    Looking at my url I gave it its wrong. I have the ampersand and question mark confused. Try this one: http://ipaddress/fog/service/ipxe/boot.php?mac=00:00:00:00:00:00




  • Moderator

    @Chris-Whiteley Lets see what your fog ipxe menu looks like. Key in the following url (update the ip add appropriate). http://ipaddress/fog/service/ipxe/boot.php&mac=00:00:00:00:00:00 Call that url with a web browser, anatomize where necessary and post the results here in a code block.

    I have seen this error before where an IT admin had a custom menu item that wasn’t formatted correctly.
