Client keeps trying to upload an image

  • I am attempting to pull my first image.

    So, I make the mistake of choosing the option to allow partition resizing. I didn’t mean to do it, but didn’t catch it and proceeded.

    The client boots and attempts to start the image upload, but then gives me an error about resizing the partition. I shut the client down and go back to the server and delete all entries for the client. I restart the client to redo the inventory and add it back and this is where it keeps acting like it wants to upload the image and then error out about resizing the partition.

    How can I get the client to go through the inventory again and stop it from trying to upload?



  • Thank you! That fixed it!

    You don’t have to delete all records for the host, you just cancel the task in the webUI. If it continues to PXE boot into a task, then you can check the /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg and delete the file that matches the MAC address of your client.

  • Yes, I did that too. I made sure there was no instance of the client or the job through the web interface.

  • Did you clear the task from the Web interface? Log into the web interface goto Task Management > Active Tasks and you should be able to kill the upload.
