PXE-E32: TFTF open timeout



  • I am getting this error message on any machine I try to pxe boot to our Fog server.
    From what I can tell things look right on the fog server. I’m not a Linux person. Here are some things that have changed since I last used fog to image a machine.

    I updated the kernel to the current 3.6.9 dated 12/712.

    I had a service partner come in and start to migrate us from Novell to Windows. Yesterday we moved DNS and DHCP from the Novell box to the new Windows VM. I have made sure that option 066, 067 are set the way they should.

    The last time I used fog before these changes was back in November(we are testing it).

    I like Fog and would like to get it working again. Any help would b greatly appreciated.

    bjennings, can we start a new thread for you? Lets start with what the problem is, if it’s this PXE-E32 Time out issue, what linux version you are running and the fog version you have installed, then we can start troubleshooting your issue directly, so we don’t confuse topics or information expressed here.
    Yes, sorry, I will start a new thread.

  • Thanks for the info. I think that I must have additional issues. I added this line and it did not resolve the problem. After a reboot, I have to issue both of the following:

    sudo start isc-dhcp-server
    sudo start tftpd-hpa

    Sometimes it tells me that the job is already running, so I have to issue the command again with a restart in place of start.

    edit your /etc/rc.local and include
    /bin/sleep30 && /etc/init.d/tftpd-hpa restart

    this is what is required to delay the start up of the tftp service at boot.



  • What is the fix for delaying the tftp startup?



  • Tom, did you run the sudo service tftpd-hpa restart command kevin listed on a running system?

    There is an issue where the tftpd-hpa service starts too quickly. If that command works, there is a fix that will cause the service to delay it’s startup



  • Update,

    I have rebuilt the linux box and reinstalled fog. Everything is right as far as I can tell. I get the same message that I did before. I can login via browser to the fog server but can’t get anything to pxe boot to it…

    Any other thoughts?

  • Hi Kevin,

    Fog is running on an ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    What OS do you have your FOG server built on?
