erpxe and fog issue unable to register host

Postby erebus720 » 10 May 2014, 04:21

Evening all,

Having some problems getting erpxe v 1.2 and fog .32 plugin working.

After following all the steps, fog will not image a host. It boots and loads, but just never registers the host. It will sit there and ....

I can also not upload a new kernel in fog.

We noticed in /var/www/html/fog/commons/ it lists a tftp directory that does not exist (tftpboot/fog/kernel)

This is on fresh installs of ubuntu server 14. Erpxe installed first, then fog using the standard fog instructions.

I've tried a few times.

Thanks very much for help in advance.

First try to install fog on a clean /tftpboot, then check if your fog setup functions correctly.
If the issue is still there then it is a FOG issue, otherwise the integration of FOG with ERPXE is faulty.

Yes I have tried that without issue. I have a standalone fog server working.

Was hoping to have one working in erpxe and retire the old one.

Is there a certain version of the fog plugin that works with the newest erpxe?

Thanks

If you have successfully installed FOG you should backup /tftpboot to /tftpboot.fog.src
unpack the ERPXE package to a clean /tftpboot
copy the kernel files from /tftpboot.fog.src to /tftpboot/er/plugins/fog/kernel
copy the image files from /tftpboot.fog.src to /tftpboot/er/plugins/fog/images

Keep our menu files but I would suggest comparing them to the new ones created by FOG and verify the APPEND line.
