@Sebastian-Roth After reverting the port back to auto and leaving port-fast enabled, registration and imaging was still successful.
Looks like port-fast was the fix.
@george1421 Ok here is the info I believe you are looking for:
Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101/2/6E PCI Express Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 07)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 8137
Kernel driver in use: r8169
idk if this will help, but when I run Kernel Update (after having fixed the credentials as per Wayne) it gets stuck on “Moving to TFTP server…”. If I close out of the operation and attempt to run Kernel Update again, I receive the “Type: 2, File: /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/fogftp.class.php, Line: 144, Message: ftp_put(/var/www/html/fog/service/ipxe/bzImage): failed to open stream: No such file or directory.” error. On the fog server, if i check /var/www/html/fog/service/ipxe, “bzImage” is nowhere to be found. Note, it was present before attempting the kernel update. It’s as if the kernel update operation is just deleting the bzImage directory rather than actually updating it. I feel like these bizarre errors I’m getting when booting my client to fog and/or registering it as a host has got to be related to a bad kernel, or, after “updating”, a missing kernel.
I’m just at loss for a fix.
