Fog_1.1.2 - Ubuntu 12.04.1 - tftp open time out....
I had a FOG server 1.1.2 on Ubuntu 12.04.1.
When clients boot to the network they are able to get a DHCP address but then gets an open timeout error on TFTP.
I tried :
sudo service tftpd-dpa stop, start, restart… (works in 0.32)
tftp -v 10.1.X.X -c get undionly.kpxe
sudo ufw disable
and… tftp… open timeout :mad:
I searched in the forum but I have not found the solution but I have seen this message :

I don’t have a clue what the problem is. I’m aware of a problem with tftpd-hpa starting on bootup issues which we have a workaround fix for. I’ve never heard of it just randomly stopping at periods of time.
What is this famous solution please ?
Well, is tftpd-hpa service running when you reboot the machine?
If so then the fix won’t help you. If the service is not starting there is a way to make the service wait until the machine is booted and then it starts the service.
Incase it is the later of the two, the resolve is:
Change the line
start on runlevel 
in /etc/init/tftpd-hpa.conf to
start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE!=lo)
And it is not a fault of FOG, this is a known issue with Ubuntu 12.04, and 14.04
You could try re-installing the tftpd-hpa service and see if that solves the issue:
sudo apt-get remove --purge tftpd-hpa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install tftpd-hpa
