SOLVED Imaging isseus new host [svn 5201]

  • Hello,
    my config:
    svn 5201
    I have problems with imaging new host. Image is win 8.1. Few days ago I deployed this image to few clients and was good.
    New host is added to fog.
    Today I got this
    Any help appreciated.

    @robza We had a minor issue within the script embedded into the iPXE binary. It’s now fixed as you already saw. If you want to change the filename in DHCP just change that one line. Adding several lines might work (I guess the last one is then) but is pretty confusing. I wouldn’t suggest doing that.

  • Hi, @Uncle-Frank
    I use “next-server option” and I have there specified few filenames:
    filename “ipxe.kkpxe”;
    filename “ipxe.kpxe”;
    filename “undionly.kpxe”;
    filename “undionly.kkpxe”;
    It is correct, or client use first image?
    After update to svn 5521 imaging back to normal state.

  • It seems that you are not the only one experiencing this. I’ve just updated to the very latest at home and am experiencing identically what you are experiencing.

    One of the @developers believe something is corrupt/goofed. See here for further details:

  • I have seen this when the kernel/init wasn’t downloaded fully.

    Try to re-run the installer and see what happens.

    Also, post the output of ls -lat /var/www/html/fog/service/ipxe/ after you’ve re-run the installer, so we can look at the size of the kernel on your server to verify that it’s all there.

    I just now updated to svn 4286 and here is my output for the above command:

    [root@fog bin]# ls -lat /var/www/html/fog/service/ipxe

    @robza This means that iPXE does not really like the realtek NIC. I guess you are using undionly.kpxe, right? You can try undonly.kkpxe, ipxe.pxe/kpxe/kkpxe or maybe even realtek.pxe/kpxe/kkpxe…
    See if any of those is working for this machine!

    Not sure if you know how to change this!? The filename is offered to the client via DHCP. So it depends on which DHCP server you use. Did you install FOG with DHCP? If yes you should find it in /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf and need to restart it after changing the config service isc-dhcp-server restart
