PXE-T01: File Not Found when trying to boot from PXE on new Fog install.



  • Hi Guys,
    I have a new install of Fog server on Ubuntu Server 12.04.5 LTR and running FOG 1.2.0. I followed the directions on the wiki to install the fog server and everything seems to be up and running. I am having problems with PXE through also and getting the same error
    PXE-T01: FIle not found
    PXE-E3B: TFTP Error - File Not found
    PXE-M05: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.
    I tried digging around and am finding all kinds of things to try but nothing seems to work. I tried everything on this page:
    [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Tftp_timeout…#0.33_and_1.x.x[/url]
    and when I test connecting to the TFTP server from my windows machine the files are not found either. I did check the
    TFTP_DIRECTORY path located in /etc/default/tftpd-hpa and it is set to “/var/lib/tftpboot”. I also tried to browse to that directory and it seems empty.
    Also when I try to update the kernel in Fog it downloads the file then hangs and transferring it to TFTP server. I have restarted the TFTP service also.
    Not sure what else to try :) Any help is appreciated.

    what are the details of the computer you’re having problems with? brand/model
    the first step i would take would be to update the undionly.kpxe file to the latest version from here
    [url]http://sourceforge.net/p/freeghost/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/packages/tftp/[/url]
    if that doesn’t work, try using undionly.kkpxe instead
    there are plenty of threads about troubleshooting ipxe error 0x040ee119



  • reinstall seemed to fix the pxe error but now im getting another error from pxe

    i would try rerunning the installer. it looks like some things may not have finished installing correctly



  • It looks empty. Could I add the files into it? Also when I try to [URL=‘http://192.168.1.5/fog/management/index.php?node=about&sub=kernel-update’]Kernel Update[/URL] through the fog config page, it says it downloads the file then when it says transfering to tftp server it hangs and never completes.

    i’m not sure what went wrong, but tftp appears to be running
    what files are located in /var/lib/tftpboot ?



  • Was there anything else that I could do to check it?



  • administrator@fhcbovscFOG:/var/www/fog/service/ipxe$ ps -Af | grep tftp

    what results return when you type the command [CODE]ps -Af | grep tftp[/CODE]



  • I did a search for tftpboot and the only directory that I see is under /var/lib/tftpboot and its empty


  • Developer

    on ubuntu 12.04 the normal tftp root should be at /tftpboot not /var/lib/tftpboot
    does that directory not exist?
