/default.ipxe... Connection timed out | fog_1.0.1 | Ubuntu 14.04 LTS | Winxp32 Vbox Client



  • Apologies if this is a repost, but I’ve searched a bit and this issue only seemed to come up previously and has been fixed with a login shell being created for the tftp user account. My issues seemed to be resolved another way and i thought i would try to share what I did.

    This is what i was seeing before the fix:
    ""

    I saw somewhere that the tftp root was pointing to /var/lib/tftpboot and i saw that the PXE loader was having trouble finding the default.ipxe file so i made a symlink to the file in the other tftpboot folder (not /tftpboot)

    root@p9:/tftpboot# cd /var/lib/tftpboot
    root@p9:/var/lib/tftpboot# ln -s /tftpboot/default.ipxe default.ipxe

    This is what happened after i made the fix:
    ""

    I probably should have changed the default tftpboot folder to /tftpboot but it looks like it’s finally seeing the boot.php script… which is a step up as I’ve been trying to get this to work for about a solid 20 hours now.

    I also read that 14.04 is not really recommended yet, but I read this after i hit the 15 hour mark and I’m not sure i want to download Ubuntu 13 and start again.

    Anyway - i thought this may help anyone else also trying to get fog to work on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

    Off to search for any /bzImage32 … 50% posts!

    EDIT:

    my tftp server looks like it has the right home folder, so I’m wondering how that even worked…

    root@p9:/tftpboot# cat /etc/default/tftpd-hpa

    /etc/default/tftpd-hpa

    FOG Modified version

    TFTP_USERNAME=“root"
    TFTP_DIRECTORY=”/tftpboot"
    TFTP_ADDRESS=“0.0.0.0:69"

    Already considered that. It’s not an option on this device. :-/ I have a raspberry PI running on the home lan that could handle dhcp as it’s always on.

    Install FOG with DHCP anyways, then disconnect from that modem/router thing. Use a cross over cable to connect directly to the target machine.

    Just kicking around ideas…

    Turn DHCP off for that device you have, and install FOG with DHCP turned on… see what happens…



  • Yes I did :-) undionly.0


  • Senior Developer

    As you’re using dnsmasq, have you made a link or copy of the “bootfile” on the /tftpboot as undionly.0



  • If it helps any, this is the router/modem they provided as much as I hate this device I am forced to use it
    http://docs.technicolor.com/data/files/cm/DMS-CTC-20130228-0000.pdf



  • I cannot modify those options in the router my ISP provided. That is why I am using dnsmasq
    I tried installing the svn suggested over my existing fog install. The “devel” version I guess shows the server IP…
    I’m trying to understand why it’s pulling the router’s IP instead of what dnsmasq is sending…

    the line in the ipxe embeded script that loads default.ipxe is ```
    chain tftp://${next-server}/default.ipxe


  • Moderator



  • I noticed today that the last line shown on the vbox console has the WRONG ip address. (It’s showing tftp://192.168.1.1/default.ipxe…
    Now I’ve set dnsmasq.conf to use .116 What would cause the clients to default to the .1 ip instead? is there another file somewhere that undionly.kpxe is referencing?

  • Ugh. this machine doubles as my workstation. Lots of work to re-install this beast… Where can I get svn 2922? Perhaps I can round up a older alower machine to install 21 on and then this developmental version.

    If I knew what the failed actions were I could likely ammend or perform them manually. I had to do that with 0.32 on fedora 19, and 20…

    Because everything else that was tried hasn’t worked & because you don’t have a functioning 1.2.0 FOG machine, I think that re-installing the OS and going with SVN 2922 (or 2948) is very safe and probably the best next-step.

    The installation script alone in 2922 does so much small tweaking for Fedora 21, it really vastly cut down on the things that had to be done to get FOG working on Fedora 21. As you did, I tried putting 1.2.0 on Fedora 21 originally; I documented what I did. My instructions were a mile long, consisted of over a dozen web page links, several dozen commands, notes, etc. I didn’t even know exactly what commands were making it work… But I did get uni-cast working on my own. Tom got me straightened out further with multicasting, and other issues. We worked together so he could fine tune the installation script for Fedora 21.

    After SVN 2920, my instructions dropped from 12(ish) pages to six simple, uncomplicated pages.

    We know beyond doubt that SVN 2922 works on Fedora 21, and have instructions written specifically for this.

    If you don’t want to do a re-install or use the SVN, maybe Tom will help.

    Ok, Fedora 21 support wasn’t formally added to FOG till SVN 2920(ish), Which isn’t part of 1.2.0

    I’d highly recommend trying SVN 2920, 2922, or the latest SVN

    I’d do a fresh install, (OS and the whole 9 yards) and follow along with those Fedora 21 instructions.

    Mostly cause I’m an idiot or something…apparently


  • Developer

    personally, i recommend 2948. I’ve had no problems with it. the latest svn is bleeding edge and might be a bit glitchy at the moment.

      FOG now has everything it needs to setup your server, but please
      understand that this script will overwrite any setting you may
      have setup for services like DHCP, apache, pxe, tftp, and NFS.
     
      It is not recommended that you install this on a production system
      as this script modifies many of your system settings.
     
      This script should be run by the root user on Redhat or with sudo on Ubuntu.
     
      ** Notice ** Redhat users will need to disable SELinux and iptables in
      order to use FOG
      Please see our wiki for more information at http://www.fogproject.org/wiki
     
     
      Here are the settings FOG will use:
            Base Linux: Redhat
            Detected Linux Distribution: Fedora
            Installation Type: Normal Server
            Server IP Address: 192.168.1.116
            DHCP router Address:
            DHCP DNS Address:

            Using FOG DHCP: 0
            Internationalization: 0
            Donate: 0
     
            DHCP will NOT be setup but you must setup your
            current DHCP server to use FOG for PXE services.
     
            On a Linux DHCP server you must set:
                next-server
     
            On a Windows DHCP server you must set:
                option 066 & 067
     
                      Option 066 is the IP of the FOG Server: (e.g. 192.168.1.116)
                      Option 067 is the undionly.kpxe file: (e.g. undionly.kpxe)
