Multicast: No Job for Mac address



  • I’ve recently rebuilt our FOG server after the database failed on the old one. No I’m having problems multicasting with the new one. After sending a multicast, the machines wake, PXE boot, load the images, and gets to the check-in stage, then the message “No job found for MAC address: <insert MAC address here>” keeps scrolling. HAs anyone got any idea what to look for?

    @BryceZ… If I recreate the task then they hang at "please wait"
    Thanks Chris, I guess It may be time to rebuild it. This is the 3rd time.
    I know the pain, this is my 4th build :)

    I hate to suggest this, as it’s rarely desirable but, have you tried rebooting your FOG server?
    Yes I tried that. I’m re installing as we peak.

  • Hey ID, no I never found the cause of the problem, though I’m pretty sure it may have been something to do with the way it was reading the SQL database, though I couldn’t find enough information to test the theory. Needed to know the process/flow the program goes through to be able to work it out. I ended up just rebuilding the server from scratch, though I kept an export of the hosts for use on the new machine.



  • I’ve seen this before a couple times but I don’t know if anyone has actually tracked it down to a cause. One thing that seems to work (for some people), is to wait until every client is at that stage “No job found…” and then recreate the task. The clients will check into the task and start imaging. Sometimes the task will disappear a second time, but since they’ve all started the process they’ll finish out the imaging, though they may hang at the end of the imaging and complain that there is no TFTP file to remove, at which point you can just reboot them.



  • Chris did you ever get this resolved? I am having the same problem.



  • I just want to clarify, I can unicast. Also, I can confirm that there are the files in the tftp area. What happens at this stage that is different to a unicast? Would I be right in suspecting that it would have something to do with the MySQL database?
