Reboot Loop after Inventory
I have installed a fog server (1.2.0) in an Virtual Box environment.
I also have there a management client (win7) to open the webinterface.
Now I create a new VM and let it boot with PXE and choose quick inventory.
After a few seconds I see the VM at the webinterface with some Virtual Box specs.
But now I have a problem, the VM is doing a boot loop.
It boot with PXE but the menu didn’t come up:
After some more dots, the VM doing the reboot.
I upload an image from my management client and try to download it to my new VM, but the task is still in queue. So I think the empty harddisk is the problem, so I install a small linux to the harddisk. But if I boot with PXE there is still a boot loop. When I change the MAC address from the VM the menu appear and I can do the inventory, but after a reboot I have the same problem.
My network setup:
Home network with internet -> my laptop -> Virtual Box with some VMs
- PfSense connectet to my LAN for the internet and an internal virtual network for the following VMs
- Win7 Management VM
- Fog Server 1.2.0 with DHCP
- New VM
I use the search, but can’t find a thread with my problem.
I change the MAC address from my new VM to the old MAC address and now the image is loading.
If this success I try to find out, what the problem was.
I think I found the problem.
After any action with fog (inventory, apply upload or download task, …) I have to “shutdown” the VM by closing the window and boot it up again. WTF!

This is a known issue with vbox. Use ipxe.pxe and all should work.
