Client unable to initiate anything but a memtest from boot menu

  • Hi Folks,

    I’m having a strange issue with one of my fog clients today…I’m unable to kick off anything but a memtest from the pxe boot menu. I’m trying to do a full registration but all I get is a quick blinking cursor at the bottom left of the client window and the boot menu goes nowhere. The same thing occurs when attempting a quick registration. Debug mode and quick image prompts for a password and exits back to the boot menu as well. Anyone know what may be going on here?

    Thanks in advance for the replies.

  • Well, sometimes that’s all it takes. It sounds to me like the tftp-hpa server may not have been running properly though.

  • I’m still not sure of the cause but I’m back to working again after a re-install of the fog server. Luckily I didn’t have much of a configuration to lose as I’m still in a feeling out stage with FOG.

  • Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I confirmed both files are there and set permissions per your instructions. Unfortunately the client is still behaving the same.

  • Are you missing your init.gz or bzImage files from the fog server? Their locations should be:


    Also verify the permissions are set correctly with:
    [code]sudo chown -R fog:root /tftpboot[/code]
