FOG Menu Not Working

Postby lightmastr » 27 Feb 2015, 05:34

I have successfully installed erpxe and installed the FOG plugin. However, whenever I try to select a fog option in the PXE menu a quick message flashes on the screen and then nothing happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

Thank you very much for updating the plugin! However, I am still having the same problem as before. Could it somehow be my configuration? Thank you for your help.

probably file names or locations.

please post your output of:

Code: Select all

ls -R /tftpboot/er/plugins/fog/


also verify you are using the correct tftpd configuration using the remap file: (for CentOS tftpd)

Code: Select all

server_args      = -m /tftpboot/erpxe.remap -vvvvv -s /tftpboot/

Here is my output of that command:

/tftpboot/er/plugins/fog/:
boot.txt fogmain.menu fog.menu images
default fogmain.menu~ fog.png kernel

/tftpboot/er/plugins/fog/images:
init_32.xz init.xz

/tftpboot/er/plugins/fog/kernel:
bzImage bzImage32

Also, where is that remap file located? Thank you again for your help!

erpxe.remap is located at /tftpboot

files location seems good, perhaps selinux issue.
use getenforce command and if Enforced change /tftpboot folder selinux context:

Code: Select all

restorecon -r /tftpboot


what is your OS type?

follow ERPXE installation manual and check if you missed anything:

I tried running that command and that didn't seem to help. I also tried adding that line to the remap file and then had a tftp issue when trying to PXE boot.

I am running Ubuntu 13.10 32 Bit but previously tried this on Ubuntu 10.04 32 Bit and still had the same issue.

If this is helpful, I was able to successfully get SystemRescueCD to work.

first make sure your remap file is being used:

Edit "/etc/default/tftpd-hpa"

Code: Select all

TFTP_USERNAME="tftp"
TFTP_DIRECTORY="/tftpboot/"
TFTP_ADDRESS="0.0.0.0:69"
TFTP_OPTIONS="-m /tftpboot/erpxe.remap -vvvvv -s"


second change permissions

Code: Select all

chmod -R 755 /tftpboot


verify you've updated the file 'fogmain.menu' and replaced 10.0.0.1 with your server IP.

I verified that I changed the IP and also verified that I had the TFTP configuration set correctly. I also tried changing the permissions. I tried booting FOG once again, and it still isn't working.

the issue is that when you press enter on the menu entry nothing happens.
this means that the tftp server cant find the files mentioned in the kernel/initrd statement in fogmain.menu
verify kernel and initrd paths are correct and if not remove fog folder and redeploy the fog120-100.tar.gz
