SOLVED TFTP PXE boot timing issue: Could not start download: Operation not supported
I am working off of a post over a year ago here:
Same exact issue but this was for a very old version. I see the same problems sporadically on my network. With some machines it works pretty good most of the time, others I get this Operation not supported error. Can I switch to another PXE file or find a way to make the timeout longer?
Using latest version of FOG 1.2.0
Using Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
Web GUI is working fine
TFTP is working and I can download the files without problem form another console.
I am using a VM to test this and if I hit the pause like the other post directed I get the menu once I hit the space bar to resume.
I move the machine over to another hosts in a new blade-center (Was in a crappy Dell 1U server host before) Problem ceased to exist. I also upgraded to the SVN latest and it seems to be working pretty good;
i believe the problems you’re describing typically get resolved though network device configurations. check the settings on your switches.
Yeah tried that a few times, it isn’t making it better. Hopefully someone has an answer. I have used 0.32 for years but since I am at a new company want this chance ot move up to the newest version.

I’d say give TFTP a restart and see if it goes away?

I don’t know how to extend the time. Maybe someone else does, so monitor this thread.
