Solved Dell optiplex 7040 problems
I have problems with my last computer (Dell Optiplex 7040 Small tower)
I updated my server fog (0.32 up to 1.2.0) beause I couldn’t clone .(FOG SERVER ubuntu 64 , 14.04 LTS with 802.3ad protocol : LACP) )
Now the Fog upgrade is correct because I clone successfully computer (older) (dell latitude 6430, hp elitebook 840 G2)
The problem is I can’t upload Optiplex to my fog server
At the beginning (origin kernel) I had errors " tsc: Fast TSC calibration failed " and then errors saying me : Problem with NFS , can’t mount NFS directory (network is unreachable) (the same error with my fog server 0.32)
I think fog(kernel) doesn’t knew optiplex’s ethernet card
Tested with kernel - 4.1.2 TomElliott => I had kernel panic .
So I modified the kernel (Fog -> Kernel update -> Kernel - 4.1.0 TomElliott) and now I have no error any more about NFS but my optiplex freeze on * Processing Hard Disk: / dev / sda
Any idea ?
sorry for my english
Just got mine working with FOG svn destribution. The problem with FOG 1.2.0 is likely the kernel can’t support the hardware. In my case the network card.
How long are you waiting for? 30 seconds? 5 minutes? 30 minutes?
I’m still waiting !! (severals hours)
Victory… Thank you guys…
For others users : I booted in debug mode. when I wrote fixparts /dev/sda I had a warning message:
I answered Yes
After I run : lsblk
and fdisk -l
I guess my partition table was the problem…
Now the capture is in progress
Thank you so much
@Wayne-Workman I think this is the ever known fixparts issue.
@Jo2220 Please recreate the same tasking but as a debug task. (Create like you normally would but before you confirm the task, check the box for “Schedule as debug”.
THen boot the client. It will bring you to a prompt. At that prompt type:
You will likely be told some information, allow the changes and write them. After that, start the upload tasking with:
You will have to press enter a bunch of times, but you should be good after that point.
@Jo2220 How long are you waiting for? 30 seconds? 5 minutes? 30 minutes?
Also, can you schedule the task as a debug task so we can do some testing? You do that the same way you do a regular upload/capture but there’s a checkbox in the confirmation window to make it a debug task.
Once you’re at the shell prompt (after pressing enter at the informational outputs), please run these commands and give us the results:
Also, anything special about the HDD in this computer?
Latest news :
I upgraded to trunk version successfully.
Boot pxe -> ok
mount NFS - > ok
But the client freeze on Processing Hard Disk: / dev / sda
Update to FOG Trunk is the best advice, honestly. https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Upgrade_to_trunk
