Existing pxe server adding menu
we have an exisiting dhcp/dns and pxe server
all i want to do is add a menu item to load fog pxe menu from our existing pxe menu
i assume the easiest way to do this is to Chain from our existing pxe server menu to the fog pxe server menu
i’ve added this item to my pxelinux.cfg/defaullt file
MENU LABEL Fog PXE Server
i can confirm i have pxechain.com in our existing pxe server tftp directory
i’m getting this error tho when i chose the above menu item
@sebastian-roth I wanted to try and keep our exisitng pxeboot menu with an option in that menu to load the fog pxe menu.
i’ve reaslied that would limit so many features of automation that it would make more sense to just add any menu items we already have from our exiting pxe menu and add them to the fog one.
@chris_unit Truth be told, its probably easier to recreate your syslinux pxe boot menu in FOG -or- chain load from FOG back to syslinux than it is to connect from syslinux to iPXE.
But to do what you want here is a fog wiki page that describes the process: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Chainloading_PXE_to_iPXE_using_pxelinux.0
Also I have a tutorial on how to pxe boot your custom images that may give you some insight on how easy it is to setup additional FOG iPXE menu items. https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/10944/using-fog-to-pxe-boot-into-your-favorite-installer-images
You can do what you want, but IMO there are easier/better ways to go about it.

@chris_unit What exactly is pxechain.com? Not exactly sure but to me it looks like the error comes from pxechain.com…
