    Description

    Finally got my installer to work, thanks to @Wayne-Workman and @george1421 But after the DB was configured and I am finally able to get to the management portal, we are stuck HERE. ARGH. 0_1491752137173_error1

    Do I wait it out? Is there a quick fix?

    Thanks in advance



  • @Tom-Elliott you’re a gentleman and a scholar. I won’t believe the things they say about you again. Lol.


  • Senior Developer

    So with @TTellez I remoted in and we got things configured.

    We had to adjust the dhcp a slight bit to correct for the current network vs. the network the server WILL be on.

    PXE Boot appears to be working properly now. We can even capture an image. Testing deploy currently.

    We did hit a snag on FTP.

    @TTellez You could also try:

    This one is assuming class A network, but only issuing DHCP outside of your server’s range to ensure no potential duplicate IPs.

  • @Tom-Elliott is there a simple command to completely replace the dhcpd.conf file? I’ve created a secondary file with the changes you made.

    (sorry, really an Ubuntu NEWB here, but I am loving this and learning SO MUCH. Thank you.)

  • @Tom-Elliott HA we posted the SAME thing at the same time. How can I correct that?



  • @george1421 ok I know its sunday, so I am sorry for the barrage of responses.

    I think I found something. the Fog server IP/Address is “localhost” or 10.1.1.10 but the DHCP server seems to be assigning the client 10.1.10.X IP addresses. So the subnet is not the same. I am guessing this is an issue. BUT, I don’t know how to change that.


  • Senior Developer

    @TTellez I see some glaring issues in your config file.

    First, you have Subnet mask of 10.1.10.0 network of /24 (255.255.255.0)

    Second, your router is defined to 10.1.1.1? What is this router?
    Third, your next-server appears to be 10.1.1.10.

    Well if your FOG Server IS the dhcp controller, this would definitely be the issue. A /24 network can only reside in scope of itself. so your network is being issued an IP in the range of 10.1.10.x, but your server is on network 10.1.1.10. The pxe client’s can’t reach the fog server.



  • @george1421 OK, got my DHCP working. Also have my TFTP active and good, however, on PXE boot, I get the PXE-E11 error still in spite of having green lights on the TFTPD and DHCP statuses. DHCP assigns the client the IP and it moves on to TFTPD and then ffailes with the ARP timeout/



  • @george1421 here is the text of my dhcp.conf file. Anything glaring out at you?

  • @george1421 thanks for the prompt response george.

    As I am a NEWB I don’t know how to use putty. :( Wish that made things easier, but I don’t.

    Based on the way I had configure the install, I unplugged the network connection, and it immediately completed. However, now, I get the PX-e11 ARP Failed error… why can’t this just work. :(

    I go to verify my DHCP and this is what I get (sorry about the screenshot)

    Did you run the installer with sudo ./installfog.sh? The process seems to be hung on sync’ing the fog user (linux) account.

    error message:
    Ensuring node user name and password match

    Also in the ./bin directory where the installer is, there is a log directory. There should be an error log of this install. Just tail the end of that log file and post it here.

    HINT: You can use putty to connect to your fog server. Putty will help you with cutting and pasting text and errors that occur in FOG.
