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 setup a new box with Ubu 14.04 and Fog 1.2 I cannot get PXE menu. See the pic included with this post for what i get. After what you see in the picture it boots straight to the hard drive. Any ideas on what I need to check? Is there a key sequence I need to press to access the menu now?[ATTACH=full]1462[/ATTACH]
While I am running my Fog on 10.04 LTS server I know many people are running it on desktop version. Have you all updated your Ubu to fix the exploit vulnerability? Also, would there be a reason desktop version is less safe than server i.e. out of support etc. 10.04 server goes out of support soon, is desktop already out of support and not eligible for the exploit fix.? Can I just do an in place release upgrade for Ubuntu to 12.04 without having to re-install/configure Fog? All of your input is appreciated.
I know there are a couple of other threads related to this but sorting through all of it seems to lead me nowhere.
I ma running FOG .31 We got in a bunch of HP z230 workstations. They have a single 500GB Toshiba SATA3 drive. When trying to register the host with the BIOS drive setting to RAID or AHCI we get the hdparm error. If I set it to IDE, Fog reports it cannot find the drive. So…I manually registered the host and I set it to deploy an image and it tells me my kernel is corrupt or damaged.
I have tried the latest Tom Elliot kernel, the most recent KS kernel (which is ~4 years old) and tried the kernel I use successfully on my z220’s to no avail. Was there ever a definitive resolution to this problem?
I am able to set up printers in Fog and, for the most part have it work. However, a couple printers we have, an older HP LaserJet 8000, as well as a newer HP P3015 will not add to hosts. I have them setup pretty much the way all the others are. I downloaded the driver packs and unzipped them to a subfolder in a network share and then point Fog to the .inf file. The fog log on the hosts says the printer installed OK but then when it tries to make it default the log will report “printer does not seem to be installed”. Host environment is mixed XP/7. I have tried HP Universal as well as the native driver for the printer model on each of these. Any ideas?
When trying to register from a PXE boot I am now getting the following:
Unable to register host for the following reasons:
You have an error in your SQL syntax;…(see attached photo for actual error)
This has been working with no problems for a long time Ubuntu 10.04 and Fog .31
