Problem PXE booting over network



  • I have Fog 1.2.0 server running on Ubuntu 12.04. It is on a Windows Server 2012 R2 network. Server 2012 is handling the DHCP. In one building, I can boot into Fog and upload and download fine. In another building on the same network, the machines start to PXE boot into Fog, then they stop. I have attached an image of the point that they get to before they fail. I was wondering if anyone has ran into this issue before and what I might need to look at network wise.

    So what is the actual error you see after this. From what I see on the picture everything seams fine. Don’t see an error here. We need the error to be able to help. Or a PCAP file! :-D

    -Is the target device on the same subnet as the FOG server?
    Yes.

    If they really were on the same subnet, then it’s a switch issue.

    however I doubt they are on the same subnet. In the other building, can you boot up into debug mode and at the CLI, issue ip addr show and post a pic of the output please?

    I can sit down and do the math to figure out if the info the client in this remote building has is really on the same subnet or not.

    -Is the models in both buildings the same?
    Yes. I brought the target machine over to my building and it booted in Fog and uploaded the image.
    -Make and model of target system that won’t boot?
    HP Compaq 6005 Pro Small Form Factor
    -Is the target device booting in BIOS (legacy) or UEFI mode?
    BIOS
    -Is the target device on the same subnet as the FOG server?
    Yes.

    10.1.8.10. This is a screen shot from a video. The info moves by too fast for me to take a good picture.

    Is the models in both buildings the same? It appears the FOG image is being transferred to this image but its not booting.

    Please provide the following

    Make and model of target system that won’t boot?

    Is the target device booting in BIOS (legacy) or UEFI mode?

    Is the target device on the same subnet as the FOG server?



  • The picture is really low-res, but I think the IP says 10.1.0.10, is that the fog server’s correct IP?
