Dell Optiplex 960 boot loop



  • Hi, since I update my FOG server from 1.0.1 to 1.1.0, I have a whole classroom with 30 PC who they always reboot in a infinite loop. The only last change that I made was this update. I search in the subject but I only found threads wit .3x version. I need your help please. Thanks!!

    Yes it should be activated



  • OK, for the switch, this is the answer of my colleage, he’s the network admin :

    The switch was a Cisco. The config of the switch was [COLOR=#000000]spanning-tree mode pvst[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#1f497d][COLOR=#000000]spanning-tree extend system-id .[/COLOR][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#1f497d][COLOR=#000000]The ports were in switchport access vlan. Spanning-tree portfast was’nt activated, do we have to activate it?[/COLOR][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#1f497d][COLOR=#000000]Thank you![/COLOR][/COLOR]

    Have you ensured the switch has STP disabled and, if the switches are Cisco, that portfast is enabled?



  • As you can see in this image, after this screen, there’s no error message. It reboot after this screen.

    Thanks for your support !!

    Starting Debian / Ubuntu / Kubuntu / Edubuntu Installtion.

    #####################################################################

    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 [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki[/url]

    Here are the settings FOG will use:
    Base Linux: Debian
    Detected Linux Distribution: Ubuntu
    Installation Type: Normal Server
    Server IP Address: 172.20.81.29
    DHCP router Address:
    DHCP DNS Address:
    Interface: eth0
    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. 172.20.81.29
                   Option 067 is the undionly.kpxe file: (e.g. undionly.kpxe)
    

    Are you sure you wish to continue (Y/N) n

    Does it give you an error message?

    Is it not receiving DHCP? My guess is this is the case, as our ipxe pulls dhcp and if that fails, reboot’s the system.
