HP c7000 blade severs



  • Afternoon,

    I’ve recently acquired some HP Proliant c7000 blade severs and am attempting to deploy an image to the via fog 1.2.0. We have other hardware that is workig just fine with the current setup.

    When pxe booting the blades, they grab a dhcp address but then errors out on the following message:

    PXE-E79 : NBP is too big to fit in free base memory
    PXE-M0F : Exiting Intel Boot Agent

    From reading some other threads, i tried to swap the ipxe files over located in /tftpboot, i tried all of the options but none seem to work.

    I’m also suffering from the weired bug that prevents me from accessing the task manager page, but that’s too much of an issue right now.

    thanks in advance,

    elliott



  • 1.3 didnt seem to work, same errors about nbp being too big.

    so followed the chainloading instrcutions from,

    [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Chainloading_PXE_to_iPXE_using_pxelinux.0[/url]

    Error 0x040ee119 ([url]http://ipxe.org/040ee119[/url])
    Waiting for link-up on net1…Down ([url]http://ipxe.org/38086101[/url])

    so, that didnt work, so removed the symlink to pxelinux, back to undionly.kpxe and it’s suddenly started to work, have registered the host and am now deploying. fingers crossed…



  • just checking out 1.3, will be testing shortly


  • Developer

    you could try chainloading from pxelinux.0



  • Hi Tom,

    Here are the details :
    FOG - 1.2.0

    The apache logs indicate there is an issue with the formatting of the time when accessing the task management page:

    i’ll have a go at svn
