IPXE : Could not start download: Operation not supported
Sivasubramaniam.T last edited by
I am using Fog Version: 1.2.0 Ubuntu: 12.04 LTS (Fresh Install )
I am getting the the below error during pxe boot.
[ iPXE initialising devices…ok
Configuring (net0 xxx)… ok
[B]Could not start download: Operation not supported ([url]http://ipxe.org/3c092003[/url])[/B]
[B]Selected boot device failed. Press any key to reboot the system. ][/B]
But sometimes I can Register the host, Upload and download the image without any issue.
Please help. Image attached for reference.
this is a little embarrassing. I dont know if i am losing my mind or if a co-worker is fucking with me but the dhcp settings were removed. We are using windows dhcp, added options 66 and 67 back in and its working again.
Thanks a lot guys. This community is great!
Which DHCP Server do you use? The one configured by FOG or a different one. Here is an interesting post on missing ‘next-server’ DHCP option: [url]http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.network.ipxe.devel/3529[/url]
And here is another one on wrong scope: [url]https://communities.vmware.com/message/2139349[/url]
Please provide some more information about your setup and which DHCP server is used (plus configuration…).
any ideas what i can try next?
no. i set this vm up a couple weeks ago. clean install of win7.
my best guess, did you upgrade the Hardware version/OS of the VM?
i edited the tftp config file. it listed root as the user and 0.0.0.0:69 as the ip address. I changed these to ‘fog’ and 127.0.0.1: respectively.
any ideas where i could find a log of why the connection is failing for this vm? it has worked on this vm in the past.
the VM is running in VMWare esxi 5.5. i setup a win7 vm to sysprep to create an image from.
so im getting the “operation not supported” message when i try to pxe boot a VM but a physical machine is able to.
I think i read a post about there being some updated pxe files?
I don’t know if it will, but it seems, to me, to be related to the tftp command possibly.
i ran the re-install of fog and pxe booting is working again. strangely enough the tftp test on the server still fails as does the client side test.
I will ignore it for now unless you think it will cause me headaches down the road.
i found a random blog post that said to run “[SIZE=13px][FONT=Georgia][COLOR=#333333]./installfog.sh --no-upgrade” after changing the server IP. This looks like it was for pre 1.x versions so I dont know if it would be ok to run or not.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
tftpd-hpa is running. service --status-all shows it and i restarted it and it started without error.
the tftp test is still failing on the server but i am getting a different error on the client side.
when it tries to boot it references the old IP. I have gone through all the settings in the webui and .fogsettings. where else can it be pulling the old IP from?
Based on the fact that a normal “test” to see if tftp is actually operating seems to fail, is the tftpd-hpa service actually running?
[code]sudo service tftpd-hpa restart[/code]
The image isn’t showing or displayed.
i posted a screen shot earlier today. let me know if you dont see it.
Can you give me an exact “permission denied” message?
I am still getting the “permission denied” error when i do the test from the fog server. when i try to pxe boot the message flashes up so quickly i have not been able to pause quick enough to see if it is still the same.
i did notice some settings that i did not expect when i looked at .fogsettings. a little more back story, about two weeks ago i changed the fog server ip and went through another forum post that referenced some locations to update the IP. It had been working until today and i did see the correct IP in many locations in the webui but in .fogsettings it had the old IP still. I updated it.
in .fogsettings i updated, password="<the new reset unix local ‘fog’ account password>"
I tried restarting tftp-hpa but it didnt help.
Thanks for the help. I am confident we will get this resolved, im sure i just missed somehting somewhere.
