Hi,

I seem to be having problems on the tftp side. within the pxelinux.cfg folder, the system seems to create 2 files.

00{mac Add} and {mac Add}

Both of these files appear empty, is this correct?

cheers

There should be created two files, one for the MAC address and one for 01-MAC. But both should contain the boot informations for the diskless client.
Which Dotsch/UX version do you use ?
For which architecture does this happens ?
Could you please also post the contents of the logfile /var/opt/dotsch_ux/add_diskless_client.log.

Thank you for the output. Due the first non specified architecture, and the several setups of the client with a different IPs and the same MACs something gone wrong. - I will have got to look into my tools, why the blank architecture string could happens.

Could you please pm me the output from "ls -laR /diskless/tftpboot" and if there is any file without size of 0 byte, the contents of the file(s)

To clean up this you can resetup the diskless server again, or better clear out the configs :
- In /etc/exports : remove all entries for the client "Harris"
- /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf remove all entries for host Harris beginning with { and ending with } - the statement "}#END" should been not deleted.
- reboot the system and try to add the client again.

I think, that a tool to remove a diskless client would be a good idea, to make such failures easyier to handle..

Thanks for the output. I think it's OK to make the cleanup of the configs, as I have written.

i'll do that tomorrow and let you know :)

Could you please try to add a new "faked" diskless client with a new MAC address and a other hostname before you reinstall.
I think, it could eventualy produce some more hints for me to analyse the root cause. - Could you please pm me the output from "ls -laR /diskless/tftpboot" and if there is any file without size of 0 byte, the contents of the file(s) again.

Hi Dotsch,

when adding a new client, the following messahe appears :-

CAT:/opt/dotsch_ux//templates/pxelinux.x64.cfg: no such file or directory

I think this is possibly the glich in the system, there appears to be 2 "/".

when i copied the contents of the pxelinux.cfg file into the mac address files, the diskless system started to boot, but kept repeating nfsmount : needs a path.
