Two issues I'm having
I have Ubuntu desktop version 14.04.5 and Fog_1.2.0 (only combination that seemed to work for me) The problems im encountering is that only 11 of my hosts will add by csv file and also im not sure if there is a step i missed for actual use of FOG but my host cannot Pxe boot into it. Im a student IT at my school and i plan to full use of the server soon but i really need these fixed any help would be very much appreciated.
I think that’s a bit “extreme”. I would certainly hope FOG is not a “life or death” situation.
(At least I would hope people aren’t threatening other’s lives over it).
Glad we could help though.
@Tom-Elliott i restarted the service and now its booting correctly and im creating our first test image thank you very much saved my life
@BrendoJohnso can you edit the
Change the line that reads as “:69”
Make it read as: “0.0.0.0:69”
Then restart the tftpd-hpa service with:
sudo service tftpd-hpa restart
@BrendoJohnso So looking at the picture of the
netstat -an | grep 69command, I don’t see anything showing “network” outgoing stuff.
Might help us out?
@Tom-Elliott tftpd-hpa start/running
service tftpd-hpa status
@Tom-Elliott its saying that’s an unknown command
@BrendoJohnso What’s output with:
sudo systemctl status tftpd-hpa
@george1421 The firewall one looks the same so its off
However the tftp one says this
@BrendoJohnso There are 2 things you need to do to the FOG host server when FOG is installed.
- Disable the firewall (iptables)
- Change selinux config to permissive.
On the fog server linux console, if you key in the following command
sudo netstat -an|grep 69that should give you an output that looks like this:
# sudo netstat -an|grep 69 udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:69 0.0.0.0:*
That tells us the tftp server is running (what the client needs to pick up the undionly.kpxe file)
If you are unsure if the firewall is disabled, post the output of this command
sudo iptables -L
If your output looks like this then your firewall is off
# sudo iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination
@BrendoJohnso Have you checked firewalls on the FOG Server?
@george1421 I managed to get the settings and everything changed for the DHCP server but when i Pxe boot now it says that TFTP has “open timeout” and still does not get to Fog
@george1421 My higher-ups would like to have them all on file beforehand or i would do it that way but thank you
@BrendoJohnso That is find if you want to upgrade. Its not a bad idea.
I can tell you the normal work flow for fog is this.
(new computer)->PXE boot into FOG->Select Registration Menu->Register->Image deployment.
You don’t need to pre-register computers as you are doing with your spreadsheet. You can do it that way, its just extra work for little value.
@Tom-Elliott It is working perfectly with the imports now thank you so much just saved me from manually entering 600 hosts
@george1421 Thank you very much makes it a lot better I’m going to see like you said about updating the Fog version quickly to 1.3.4
@BrendoJohnso You have FOG 1.2.0 running on Ubuntu 14.04 right?
If so that part is setup, all you need to do is setup / change your dhcp settings. If you are doing this test setup in a home lab then there are a few other things we could setup. Home dhcp servers (typically your ISP router) doesn’t have the options needed to pxe boot computers. This isn’t a problem either, we just need to know a bit more of your setup.
@george1421 Thank you if there are anymore outer Fog steps that are needed please go ahead and list them for me as itll be awhile before i can setup the actual server
