DHCP/BOOTP: Reply not for us



  • What does it mean when you try to image a host and get the message “DHCP/BOOTP: Reply not for us”. I see this at what seems like random when I try to do a quick image. Doesn’t seem to be a specific type of machine either. Eventually I just end up with a black screen and I have to power cycle the PC. Also, something that’s weird is sometimes our PCs just won’t pickup a DHCP address via PXE. Windows works fine. Again, seems like random.

  • Just an update: We found that if we pull the AC power and the Network cable. Then plug back in, all works fine.

    A few questions:

    Are you using Windows DHCP Server, and if so is option 66 set? Could you possibly try setting the bootp options as well?

    Is your next-server setup and/or setup properly?[/quote]

    It’s currently a Novell NetWare DHCP server. Option 66 is set.



  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 29445, member: 7271”]Can you give me the P/N or specific model type of DC5800 you have? Maybe mine are different, but I know everything works on them.[/quote]

    It seems to only be hit and miss as well. We do have other 5800s that do image, which is really strange. The model is AJ411AV.

    Yes



  • Can we do a re install instead of an update to 1.1 and keep our images?

  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 29394, member: 7271”]Scott,

    Can you update your installation to the latest (1.1.0) and see if it helps you out at all? Also, the last I heard with others having similar issues a “reinstall” of FOG corrected the issue for them, though I don’t know what’s causing it in the first place.[/quote]

    Updated to FOG 1.1.0 but it didn’t seem to make a difference. Now when I have a PC that does pick up an IP address (HP dc5800) I get the screen below where it just hangs.

    Scott,

  • That usually means the kernel doesn’t have the correct driver for the machine you are trying to image. You can try to update your kernel to a newer one or an unofficial one by going to FOG Configuration > Kernel Update. There is a drop down box to change to unofficial.
