Unable to do a host registration



  • Hi,
    I recently installed the 1.2.0 version of FOG and I’m not able to do a host registration. Both options do nothing, when I select an option it boots to the hard drive without show errors or do the task.

    Any idea?

    Thanks



  • It’s working with the latest SVN version, thank you very much!



  • I’ll test tomorrow the SVN version.

    Thank you!


  • Developer

    1.2.0 is the stable published release. This was put out in June. If you could update to trunk it will help to narrow down some issues. Please update using the wiki link below.

    [url]http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Upgrade_to_trunk[/url]



  • I’m on [SIZE=12px][FONT=Verdana][COLOR=#494949]1.2.0 (the latest version published)[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]


  • Senior Developer

    what version of fog are you running?

    Can you update to the latest?



  • I can’t register any host.

    Well! I managed to see the error on an old computer:

    /bzImage32… No such file or directory ([url]http://ipxe.org/2d12603b[/url])
    Could not boot: No such file or directory ([url]http://ipxe.org/2d12603b[/url])


  • Senior Developer

    So…

    Host isn’t registering? Is this all hosts, or just particular hosts?



  • Well, I tried to boot another pcs with the same behaviour: When I click on “registration” menu option the system reboots. [S]But, if I try to boot on a virtualbox virtual machine, that option gives me a “FATAL: INT18: BOOT FAILURE” error. [/S](ops, is an Virtualbox error…). I don’t know what is happening. I tried to reinstall fog without success.

    Any idea what is wrong?

    Thank you



  • OK. It looks like my issue was user error and ignorance. I believe my installation is doing what I need it to do. The first problem was that I was used to all hosts booting to the same PXE menu, as was the case in version 0.32. When I deleted the registration for my test host, I got a different menu, which contained the Quick Registration and Inventory option that I needed. So, for anyone else out there upgrading from version 0.32, with the new version, unregistered hosts boot to one menu, and registered hosts boot to a different menu. The next issue was getting it configured properly. Thanks again for your assistance.


  • Senior Developer

    Can you provide the boot.php output using the Mac of that particular host?



  • It seems, if I understood the original post correctly, that we appear to be missing the actual issue. If I misunderstood the original post, then I apologize for muddying the waters. The issue I am having, the same issue to which I believe the original post refers, has been stated twice in my earlier posts.

    In my most recent post, I stated:
    The “Quick Registration and Inventory” option was on the PXE menu when I was running FOG 0.32, but it is no longer there after the upgrade to 1.2.0.

    In my original post, I asked:
    Is there a way to add this option back to the PXE menu, or at the very least, perform the same function with another PXE menu option?

    Again, I thank you in advance for any help you may provide.


  • Developer

    So again can you post the exact same thing [U][I][B]BUT with this BAD HOST[/B][/I][/U]



  • For this particular host, you are correct. I was using this host for testing purposes only. However, if it was not already registered, there is no option, as far as I have been able to tell, on the PXE menu to register and inventory the host. The “Quick Registration and Inventory” option was on the PXE menu when I was running FOG 0.32, but it is no longer there after the upgrade to 1.2.0.


  • Senior Developer

    From what I’m seeing, the host is registered.

    I don’t know why it failed installing tftp, but from the boot menu, the host is already registered so you wouldn’t see the quick reg and inventory option.



  • Here is the rest.

  • I think I am having the same issue as joacliba. I just upgraded FOG from version 0.32 to 1.2.0 on a computer running Debian 6.0.10. Upon booting a machine to the PXE menu, I attempt to register the machine to the FOG database, but the “Quick Host Registration and Inventory” option is no longer on the menu and none of the options currently on the menu seem to perform this function. I have been searching the wiki and forums for a solution, but I have been unable to find what I need. Is there a way to add this option back to the PXE menu, or at the very least, perform the same function with another PXE menu option?

    Having read through the previous posts, I am including the information from my server that was requested of joacliba from his server.
