FOG 1.0.1 and older NICs



  • We have FOG 1.0.1 rolled out, but since have been having issues with imaging some of our older PCs with Intel NICs. The machines will get their IP, start to PXE, start to load, then gives the error “could not boot: no such file or directory ([url]http://ipxe.org/2d8c203b)”[/url]. Newer PCs image fine. HP dc6000 and d530s are two troubled devices.

    FOG: 1.0.1 on Fedora 12.

    [FONT=Consolas]tftp x.x.x.x get default.ipxe[/FONT]
    does it download the file?[/quote]

    I see what I did. When updating the tftboot files I accidentally moved default.ipxe. Thanks!

  • [quote=“Scott B, post: 29026, member: 15315”]You were correct, but I still see the issue after performing the step listed. Same error.[/quote]

    I’m seeing it on other machines now as well.



  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 29025, member: 7271”]okay,

    I’ll be willing to be you have a folder called:

    [code]/var/lib/tftpboot[/code] and for whatever reason a fix for this would be:
    [code]ln -s /tftpboot/default.ipxe /var/lib/tftpboot/default.ipxe[/code][/quote]

  • Attached. Did this using both undionly.kpxe.INTEL and undionly.kpxe from code - Revision 1774.

    what is the exact error code? that file makes no attempt to connect to ipxe.com



  • [quote=“Junkhacker, post: 28914, member: 21583”]please update to the latest version in the svn trunk. we believe we may have the issue finally fixed.

    Doing so gives me an error about failed connecting to ipxe.com.

    Weird that you’re having issues with HP DC6000’s as I’ve got about 250 of them and they all, from what I’ve found, work fine with 1.x.x.[/quote]

    Which pxe boot file are you using?



  • [quote=“Junkhacker, post: 28753, member: 21583”]what type of DHCP server are you using?
    can you retrieve the file with this command?
    [FONT=Consolas]tftp -i <server IP> get default.ipxe[/FONT][/quote]

    “Transfer successful: 167 bytes in 1 second(s), 167 bytes/s”

    [quote=“Scott B, post: 28762, member: 15315”]Long live NetWare, still my fav server OS. You can still keep eDirectory and not deal with AD. Actually I think, even eDirecotry will now run on a Windows host OS.[/quote]

    Thanks for the heads up, My bosses only concern is keeping Groupwise at the moment -.-

    You may want to check the read and write permissions on that boot file.

    Try to grab the file from another machine on the network.

    If it’s windows you need to enable the tftp client in the add/remove settings for the command to complete.
    [code]
    tftp x.x.x.x get undionly.kpxe[/code] where x.x.x.x is your fog server, you may want to change the undionly.kpxe part to your respective file at the moment.

    If you want to try it from linux use Junkhackers command above.

    We are looking to move to AD.[/quote]

  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 28758, member: 7271”]What version of Novell are you running?

    Novel 6.5 prior to sp2 apparently has a file character limit to 12, so you may want to try relabeling the file as undionly.0 or something similar.[/quote]

    We are past Novell NetWare and now on their Linux flavor of servers, the base is SuSe Linux, and the Novell “stuff” that was NetWare is now called Open Enterprise Server. So…

    Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 11.1
    PATCHLEVEL = 1
    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 11
    PATCHLEVEL = 2
