Storage Node unable to register host

    I am getting an error unable to register host (/bin/ when trying to register any host on new Storage Node. The only issue I see right away is that tftp and http show my master’s IP instead of the node. These computers are in separate offices connected with a VPN. I am able to log in to the master with no issue.

    We have had people with dual-homed clients have issues prior and those were not resolved.

    I think kernel arguments for network address can be passed and inits then look for that network and any interfaces without it be shut down. I can mess with this maybe Friday or sunday.

    @FallingWax To image clients, the server, as well as nodes, have to be able to communicate properly.

    A client that’s trying to perform some imaging task on 192.168.25 would not be able to image if the server or node is server on 192.168.0 because the subnets cannot cross communicate.

  • @Tom-Elliott that maybe the issue is that it’s not seeing the master properly. I have two NICs on each machine. 1 is LAN access to communicate and the other for local dhcp to image clients respectively. LAN IP on master is and LAN on mode is The nics controlling DHCP are master and node is In /opt/fog/.fogsettings I am using the 25.x ips. Do I have that wrong?

    The address used to get the specified boot file via tftp is totally dependent on your DHCP settings for the remote site.

    I don’t understand. When you register, it’s not registering to a node, it’s registering to the Master Server.
