There can be only ONE!
ahem… There is only one instance of “console” in that context. There are two other entries as variables “consoleblank=0”
And now, somehow, I’m back to the original condition without getting to the ControlKey and Username/Password.
I read somewhere else, someone was having an issue where they could only get things to work immediately after rebooting the server. So I tried that.
If I time the PXE boot on my VM to hit the FOG server within the first few seconds of restarting, I can get all the way to the PXE menu. I quickly then tried to do a Quick Host Registration.
tsc: Fast TSC calibration failed
The VM window re-sizes to what looks like 1024x768, then if I’m lucky, I might get to:
piix4_smbus 0000:00:07.3: SMBus base address uninitialized - upgrade BIOS or use force_addr=0xaddr
… otherwise it’s hanging after the screen re-size.
I then disabled the firewall:
[CODE]sudo ufw disable[/CODE]
My VM is showing CPU usage above idle (12%) while I’m stuck.
Meanwhile we’re looking into the SQL server.
