+1 for this feature.
It would be very nice to have the option to set PXE menu items on Groups/Hosts.
Apparently the host list issue is related to a few bad entrys. I Imported a host list file from an older SVN version (which broke the host list after a few minutes) and exported it again after which I deleted all Hosts and reimported them resulting in the following:
Total Rows 37 Successful Host's 28 Failed Host's 9 Errors Row #4: This MAC Belongs to another host Row #6: This MAC Belongs to another host Row #7: This MAC Belongs to another host Row #12: This MAC Belongs to another host Row #17: This MAC Belongs to another host Row #20: This MAC Belongs to another host Row #26: This MAC Belongs to another host Row #28: This MAC Belongs to another host Row #29: This MAC Belongs to another host
After Updating to 5048 importing the SVN host list file results in:
Total Rows 37 Successful Host's 28 Failed Host's 9 Errors Row #4: Host already exists with this name: 100408B Row #6: Host already exists with this name: 100435B Row #7: Host already exists with this name: 100453B Row #12: Host already exists with this name: 100798LC Row #17: Host already exists with this name: 102173B Row #20: Host already exists with this name: BUEPACS23 Row #26: Host already exists with this name: buepc119 Row #28: Host already exists with this name: BUEPC372 Row #29: Host already exists with this name: BUETEST
Still weird but at least it doesn’t break it ;D.
I moved our FOG installation from Debian to Archlinux and noticed some Problems.
The tftp.service file created by the FOG install script does not work. The default file created by the tftp-hpa package works fine.
Changes made in FOG Configuration->iPXE Boot Menu cannot be saved. However changing the same settings in FOG Configuration->FOG Settings->FOG Boot Settings works as expected.
iPXE Advanced menu is not showing up on clients and adding custom entrys to it via “Menu Show With” doesn’t work either (still won’t show). But maybe I’m doing something wrong since there is no reference on how to work with these settings.
Host List Breaks after time x when importing Hosts from file.
AH01071: Got error 'PHP message: PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function socket_strerror() in /srv/http/fog/lib/fog/Host.class.php on line 854\n', referer: http://"IP Removed"/fog/management/index.php?node=host&sub=search```
I’m trying to install a new FOG Server with 2 NIC’s. eth0 is supposed to be the management NIC which is accessible via the local network, and eth1 should only be used by FOG but I can’t seem to get it to work. Has someone set it up that way and can point me in the right direction ?
Edit: For anyone who has the same Problem a quick how to.
1.Setup your NIC’s to something like this
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth1 inet static
Replace the address and netmask to your liking. In this example there is a network with dhcp server connected to eth0 and eth1 will serve as a standalone network.
This should do the trick. Reboot if you’re having troubles.
After having another go at this with the latest svn build, I finally solved the problem. Or at least I hope I did.
I had the same problem as before with the latest svn release. I changed between different .kpxe and .kkpxe files countless times until I tried something I hadn’t done before. I always used symlink’s to switch between .kpxe and .kkpxe files, but instead of doing that I decided to change Option 67 in the DHCP settings for a change. And it worked!
I’ll try a different client later to see if it really is the fix I’ve been looking for.
Edit: Doesn’t seem to solve the Problem. But I found a workaround. Booting any OS (Live CD is enough) and rebooting solves the problem. I guess it has something to do with the NIC not being shut-down correctly by the manufacturer.
I don’t think it’s SSD related. We’ve been using the same SSD’s in the NUC’s with manufacturing data 01/2014 and those work with fog. Only those with manufacturing data 05/2014 are having troubles. Intel switched mainboards, 05/14 only accepts 1.35V RAM while 01/14 accepts 1.5V. The NIC is differnt too, and probably the SATA controller.
iPXE seems to work fine now. The “Published Kernels” work till 3.6.9. The Unofficial Kernel [FONT=Ubuntu][COLOR=#555555]3.15.4 dose this:[/COLOR][/FONT]
P.S. All working kernels skip partimage.
