Dual NIC issues in the pxe boot environment.



  • My current setup is an isolated network build (192.168.8.10)fog 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 14.04. I’ve now decided I’d like to use across my network.

    I began by configuring a second nic to a static (192.168.1.190). I set up my networks dhcp options and successfully booted to the image file over the second nic (192.168.1.190) . After pxe booting client the image crashes shortly after referencing(too fast to read) my isolated networks IP address (192.168.8.10).
    Do I need to create a second pre image environment for booting from outside the original isolated network? And is there a config file to edit the preboot environments configurations?



  • @weargwulf If you want further help, we need to know about your network devices and their configurations.

    Also, I’m not entirely sure that I understand your question. If you could elaborate more, that would be helpful.



  • I think you need just some switch / router configuration done.

    It is possible to image across WANs and through routers and across subnets - not really advised - but it’s possible.
