Someone uploaded an image on top of one of my images today. I can tell from the timestamp of the image file in Linux. Is there anyway i can find out which host or fog user uploaded that image?
@Junkhacker OK changing the boot exit type solved the problem on my z200/210 trying to boot to SAN. However, I got bad info from my colleague in that the z230 error is prior to the PXE boot menu not after exiting. I have some z230’s that work fine, others hang at the “Intializing devices” message prior to the fog pxe menu. They have the same Intel Boot agent version of 1.4.03 Any ideas why some of these will not PXE boot and others will?
@Junkhacker Ahhh, thanks Junkhacker! That should be easy enough. I will first try changing to grub and see what happens
Thank you so much for your very quick response. Please forgive my ignorance but some of the info is not familiar to me. I can figure out how to change .kpxe files, I assume I just grab the .kkpxe rename the old one and copy the kkpxe to the filename undionly.kpxe or do I change the bootfile name in the dhcp scope to the .kkpxe name? But the other info you provided about IPXE statement, grub and exit types is not familiar to me and I’m not sure what to do in that in direction. I am not a linux expert but I have been very comfortable setting up, troubleshooting, changing and customizing whatever I had to do in Linux and fog up through version .32 . I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with fog 1.2 so any details you can provide for this environment to help me get my z series workstation to boot beyond the fog pxe menu is most appreciated.
I have almost 100 HP z200/210/220/230 workstations that worked just fine under Fog .32. Since building a new server with Fog 1.2 these workstations will all PXE boot to the fog menu without issue. However when it exits the fog menu to continue booting to the hard drive the machines hang. Some hang with “Initializing devices” others seem to look for a SAN and hang there. I found some other threads that sound similar to this and my best guess is I need to change the .kpxe file. Can someone point me in the right direction of which file to get and where to update it on the server? Much thanks in advance!

I set my new fog box with the same IP as the old one and I am just unplugging/plugging them in when I need production at the moment. I will research the sym link and try if possible, otherwise I will do the dnsmasq. Thanks for your input, your comment about the tftp file is what made me go “oh yeah the pxe file name is different above .32”
I am starting to think this is an issue with the scope settings for the boot filename. 067 needs to be changed from pxelinux.0 to undionly.kpxe since I am trying to move from .31 to 1.2. I set the new fog server up to use dhcp for expediency sake so as not to have to involve the people that manage our dhcp until I had it up. I think I will try DNSMASQ for now and once I can see that I can indeed move my production box to 1.2 I will let theem know to make the change. If 067 is currently set to pxelinux.0 would DNSMASQ with proper settings for iPXE allow me to circumvent that while I test out 1.2?
