Computers stopped joining domain automatically after upgrade of kernels and bootloaders.



  • I got a new problem now after solving the issue from “New computers- no configuration methods succedeed” older computer models now cannot join the domain while imaging with previously working images. I am not sure it could be because of the new bootloader ipxe.kpxe? Updated kernels or tftboot files (undionly.kpxe, undionly.kkpxe, ipxe.kpxe, ipxe.efi?
    Computer is not receiving a designed name in registration, still have random Desktop-xxxxx . I copied some of fog. log below:

  • @Sebastian-Roth
    I took your advice with certificate issue, and solved it easiest way, by preparing a new image, and voila, workstation joined the Domain with no problem. Need to prepare two more images, but its easier than searching for another solution. thank you!

    @Mightmar said in Computers stopped joining domain automatically after upgrade of kernels and bootloaders.:

    I am not sure it could be because of the new bootloader ipxe.kpxe? Updated kernels or tftboot files (undionly.kpxe, undionly.kkpxe, ipxe.kpxe, ipxe.efi?

    That should not play a role.

    We see two errors in the fog-client logs:

     17.04.2042 15:07 Middleware::Communication Download: http://172.19.180.130/fog/management/other/ssl/srvpublic.crt
     17.04.2042 15:07 Middleware::Communication ERROR: Could not download file
     17.04.2042 15:07 Middleware::Communication ERROR: Unable to connect to the remote server
    

    This might be an issue in the network that only happens once in a while. But let’s take a look at the next error.

     17.04.2042 15:09 Middleware::Communication Download: http://172.19.180.130/fog/management/other/ssl/srvpublic.crt
     17.04.2042 15:09 Middleware::Authentication ERROR: Could not authenticate
     17.04.2042 15:09 Middleware::Authentication ERROR: Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: authority
    

    This usually means that this host is missing the FOG server CA certificate in its certificate store or at least the fog-client is not able to find it. Seems like this is something that can happen after sysprep or it’s an issue with the old fog-client version you are using: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/10562/active-directory-join-fails
