Update on the Proxy issue and one users should check into. We found the actual issue was our DHCP server had ran out of leases. To correct this we lowered the time an IP is leased for. This only occurred as we had imaged a few hundred system while we roll Windows 10 out.
In the mean time, I'm still trying to troubleshoot the USB drive booting issue but that is probably a different issue altogether.
Boot Image: initrd.xz
When I used Rufus it was on a thumbdrive. I had utilized the Zalman to verify it was not Rufus causing the issue.
Yes I used Rufus and a Zalman enclosure during my testing. In both instances I utilized the ISO file I downloaded. I opened the configuration files in the ISO and verified they were all configured to the servers IP address correctly.
So, I spent 2 hours trying to troubleshoot this before I posted and within minutes of posting it we figured it was a PC connected to the network causing it. We had unplugged all the systems and now it's working reliably. I re-ran the proxy in debug mode and am seeing far fewer requests. I'm thinking one of the systems they unplugged was causing the issue.
So, once I verified I could boot over PXE (tested 10 times) I then tried to test the USB drive. Found it is still not working. I get the Boot menu but then a black screen after selecting CloneDeploy or Console.
We arrive this morning to find that the systems stopped receiving PXE DHCP requests. A system will try to boot to PXE and never receives a file. I restarted the services and server but it's not working. I got it to work once but then has not since and am scratching my head.
Here is my server:
Windows Server 2008 r2
CloneDeploy installed with ProxyDHCP
Troubleshooting I've performed
Restarting services and/or server
Verified I can pull files via TFTP
Regenerated boot files from the web interface
Ran the ProxyDHCP in debug mode but nothing stood out
Also, to get by while I attempt to figure this out, I built a USB drive. It will boot to the menu but goes to a black screen when I select either CloneDeloy or Console.
I would like to make a fourth suggestion:
4.) Become a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (such as Fedora) and run a fundraiser to pay for the certification. From what I'm gathering, an EV cert would cost about $200-$300/year depending on who issues it. That would easily be funded from an online fundraiser with a cap so it only goes to pay for the certificate. In my opinion, may be easier than running a company with a free\paid service(s)
OK, there was an issue with the upgrade. I was able to re-apply and I am happy working! I do appreciate all the responses you've provided and the product you've created. THANKS!
OK. When I log in, it then reports:
** Downloading Core Scripts **
...... Could Not Download Script
...... Response Code 404
Sorry I'm bugging you so much.... I'm wondering if something did not update with the upgrade at this point
It does list the kernels. I had to chown 755 the kernels in the /tfptboot/ for them to load. But, now I'm stuck with a whole other issue. After updating from 1.2.0 to 1.3.0, On Demand is missing from the Boot Menu. I've verified it is enabled but it will not show up.
