    Host Registration

    Hello all.

    I have set up a fog server with stunning results but I have two IT suites who won't register thus stopping imaging. One it freezes after I put in a password for full registration the other won't load up the fog boot screen. Both have boot and wake from lan on. Ethernet is first in the boot order.

    Thanks for the help.

    Have you tried switching to the text based PXE menu (where you have to type fog.reginput to register the host?)

    I think this method removes password protection, but it doesn't present an option list to people, just a prompt for 3 seconds which needs correct input to function.

    We had to do this to get our Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 laptops to work properly.

    Is there an option I need to change to get the text screen? I can't find any mention in the fog documents so far.

    One suite comes up with this error. Through googling it seems it has something to do with pxelinux.0 but the other computers I have tried are working.


    tftp
    pxe-t01 : file not found
    pxe -e3b : tftp error - file not found
    pxe-m0f : exiting pxe rom

    Not by a FOG server at the moment, but found this:

    Other Information -> PXE Boot Menu -> Change "Graphical" to "Text"

    The computers that froze after the password was entered are now working in text mode. The others still have the tftp error. It doesn't appear to be a hardware fault though. Thanks for the help.

    forgive me if i sound stupid as networking TCP / IP isnt my strong point, but are these 2 troublesome IT suites on a different subnet? are the IP addresses within the scope of the DHCP / TFTP server if you set one? can u ping the TFTP server from a machine in there?

    No they are not on seperate subnets. Yes they are in the scope and yes I can ping the fog server.

    go to kernel.org and get the updated syslinux. A bug might be biting you.

    An update has not sorted the problem. Where is the pxelinux.cfg directory?
