Nothing is working...
[SIZE=3][FONT=arial]So I’m running 1.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a Dell Optiplex 755 (physical server). In my network, there are three different Dell models I have attempted a PXE boot into.[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][FONT=arial]1 Dell Vostros[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][FONT=arial]2 Dell Optiplex 9010[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][FONT=arial]3 Dell Optiplex 990[/FONT][/SIZE]
[SIZE=3][FONT=arial]Now, I have a unique situation here. First, 1 boots perfectly, absolutely no flaws. That’s all good and well, however, 2 and 3 don’t function. 2 will hang for a while and give me an error “PXE-E[COLOR=#000000]51 No DHCP or DHCP Proxy Offers received” I don’t know why it would not receive an IP from the DHCp server, when #1 does. 3 Goes for a while, then stops and says “Could not boot: Input/ouput error ([url]http://ipxe.org/1d0c6139[/url])”[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
[COLOR=#000000][SIZE=3][FONT=arial]Please help! I’ve been at this all week and I haven’t even uploaded my first image! [/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
It seems that a “Dell PowrConnet” has Spanning Tree Proticol (STP) enabled by default.
If you disable this feature on this switch it may allow PXE to route through.
To quote Tom another thread…
[QUOTE]2) Check all networking switches that can be managed have portfast enabled (cisco) and/or *STP Spanning Tree Protocol) are disabled on the switch. The and/or meaning with Cisco, portfast should be all that’s needed, but turn off Spanning Tree Protocol if you can just to ensure this is NOT a factor in blocking the DHCP from iPXE.
It is a Dell PowerConnect
Can you confirm the switch Make and model?
I think I have found the issue. I work at a bank where we have a separate building for out IT stuff. Well, our IT building is on a different switch than the bank is. Things seem to boot fine in the bank, but not in the IT building, where the FOG server is. I think I am going to move the FOG server around that switch and get it off of this switch.
Being a lowly intern means somebody “higher” than you can possibly lead you in the right direction.
That being said, I don’t know what the issue is, but it almost sounds like a firewall is blocking access to the TFTP server. Have you tried simply disabling the firewall?
[code]sudo ufw disable[/code]
I’m not sure what I did.
I’m just a lowly intern, please forgive me.
FWIW, my ubuntu 14.04 server is working fine.

Is there a working install I could use from a flash drive? Ubuntu didn’t seem to like the flash drive.
Scratch that, sorry.

And honestly I would suggest using about any other Linux distro other than Ubuntu 14.04.[/quote]
I tried putting 10.04 on, but the PC didn’t like that for some reason. I might try the x86 install
I would suggest you cleanly scrub out your current FOG install and all packages that are then no longer needed, then start again.

I have done that twice, but I’m not opposed to doing it again if you think that will solve it.
Have you, possibly, thought of performing a reinstall of FOG?
It sounds like, with these messages, tftpd-hpa service isn’t running properly.
The PXE-E51 and M0F errors both, the Vostros now looks just like the 9010s.
[quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 28110, member: 7271”]What is the error? The PXE-M0F error?[/quote]
[quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 28111, member: 7271”]Are you able to login to the FOG GUI?[/quote]
Yes I am. The GUI loads perfectly, but I am not able to PXE what-so-ever.
[quote=“Jordon Rapp, post: 28105, member: 24302”]Nothing specifically referencing boot.php. Here’s my log if you want to have a look: [URL=‘http://www.pastebin.com/BAUs2mub’]pastebin.com/BAUs2mub[/URL]
Edit: log from today.[/quote]
Took a look and it appears the database isn’t linking properly. Are you able to login to the FOG GUI?
[quote=“Jordon Rapp, post: 28109, member: 24302”]Well that’s now the case. I ran full registration on the Vostros, they stalled, I restarted them, now they return the same error as the 9010s.[/quote]
What is the error? The PXE-M0F error?

How is it “Nothing is working” when right in your first statement you say it IS working?[/quote]
Well that’s now the case. I ran full registration on the Vostros, they stalled, I restarted them, now they return the same error as the 9010s.
