dhcp issue - Lenovo E73 - Realtek RTL8111GN
Here is screen shot of error i am getting. It is only happening to Lenovo E73 model desktops.
@pdit What version of fog are you using?
i have isolated network setup. using dumb switch and only fog server and target computer is connected.
it is strange that i works in one desktop but not in other.
Well there’s two reasons that come to mind.
- You have spanning tree enabled on the network port but you are not using one of the fast spanning tree protocols like RSTP. The test for this is to place a dumb (unmanaged) switch between the pxe booting computer and the building network switch. If it boots and images correctly with the unmanaged switch in between then its a spanning tree network issue.
- Since its getting into the fog iPXE menu but failing when FOS starts its possible that FOS doesn’t have the network driver built in. I kind of doubt it, but its possible. FOS is the Fog Operating System (customized version of linux) that runs on the target computer to capture and deploy images.
