Unable to connect to tftp server

  • Hi

    I’m receiving “unable to connect to tftp server” when trying to start a basic imaging task.

    The server is installed on fedora 16. I can run the following from the servers command prompt and it works ok:

    Tftp -v -c get pxelinux.0

    I’ve also followed the fog wiki article and made sure all tftp passwords are correct, but still no joy.

    Host connect ok using pxe and I see the fog menu, but I am unable to clone an image.

    Can anyone help please?

    On 10.04 LTS [B]Server[/B], you should not have to make that change. Create a new thread with the particulars of your issue including Fog version, OS Version, and as much information about the error as you can. We’ll be glad to help you.

  • I’m having a similar problem and I’d like to try the same solution that scgy used. How can I add bin/bash to etc/shells? I’m using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

  • Hi thanks for the reply.

    Yes I had set the storage group password correctly, however I have found a solution. It appears that the vsftpd yum install on fedora 16 is incorrect as it does not add /bin/bash to /etc/shells. Once I added it FTP began to work ok and I could start a new imaging tasks.

  • Did you double check and make sure your default storage group password is also set properly?
