Host PXE boot issues
I am able to get my hosts to PXE boot and they all are seeing my fog server just fine. However, they get stuck in a loop and never actually boot up to the fog GUI. Any help would be greatly appreciate as i have already went through all the wiki articles i could find related to this and tried to confirm all my settings/ permissions/ credentials we all correct.
Confirmed working now on build 7733. Thanks for the quick fix Tom!
I could in theory wait, but for future knowledge i wouldn’t mind knowing how to do this in the event i need to do it promptly.
Yes this is a VM so i already have taken a snapshot today in case something like this needed to happen.
@Arrowhead-IT Thanks, I’ve been cross linking the similar threads back to https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/7490/boot-loop just so we have one place for the devs to look. When they resolve the boot-loop issue it should address the others too.
This same thing is happening to me on 7731
also to this guy
and to these guys
@josh.martin Sorry I got side tracked on another issue.
Just to be clear, when I said impacting production this is something that can’t wait for a few hours until the devs check in, right?
Two things, what did you use to download the trunk git or svn
Second if this is on a vm do you have a way to snapshot it so if this breaks (always a possibility) we can return it to a known configuration? Because rolling back changes is not always supported.

It is currently impacting production.
Where can i find some instructions on down grading or am i supposed to do the upgrade process to a specific version?
@josh.martin Does this issue impact production? If it does there may be a way to roll back the changes (i.e. reinstall 7727 from the other thread). If it doesn’t impact production then lets let the developers see what changed between the two revisions.
I am on Trunk build 7729 and yes i was about to say a few other people seem to be experiencing this same issue as i look through posts on here.
Checked all my sql settings and can login successfully with the same credentials that the web interface has stored.
Seems to maybe a bug in r7729 and older(??)
update: From the other thread r7727 is said to work. @Developers
Well I can tell the error “SQL:: command” not found is not a good sign.
What version of fog are you running?
What linx OS distribution and version are you running on the FOG server.
From what I can see in the picture the pxe booting process is OK, its something in the FOG server communicating with the SQL server database (guess).
