    I am new to clonedeploy and this the first build.Have install in Ubuntu CD version 1.4.0

    When I try to change the setting to the below getting the below message . I need help with updating the winpe to tftpboot in the clonedeploy.
    looking your support in this. Let me know if you need any details.

  • Hi Admin.

    Thank you .

    I created the winpe and need to transfer the tftpboot folder to the linux box /tftpboot directory. what is the method I could use to copy the folder which is in win 10 to the ubuntu server .

  • Put the files on an smb share that both computers have access to, then just copy from server to server. Or you could winscp, or copy the files to cloud and copy.

  • Awsome. Thank you Admin.

    Another question when I try to upload from the image from the USB. On the process **creating image schema ** keep for a long time and gives the error message " This hard drive Appears to have both GPT and MBR. Clonedeploy does not know what to use ou must first convert the drive to one or the other before uploading.

    what can I do to correct the issue . Appreciated any help and support on this.

    Hi Admin.
    Thank you
    I did copied the tftpboot directory to the tftpboot ubuntu server . I am not using a DHCP server when I try to update the PXE setting give the below error " Could not copy PXE Binaries " . Have I done any wrong. Anything need to be correct ?Error update PXE.JPG Merge file.JPG

  • @Irfan Do I need to install the dhcp service in to the server and do the changes to run Integrating With CloneDeploy Server . Already I have a dhcp server .

  • You don't need a tftp server if you already have one. What do you have your tftp path set to?

  • Hi Admin.

    Are you referring to DHCP or tftp ? For Dhcp have a separate server . TFTP I have installed in the clone deploy server it self. TFTP in the ubuntu server default path /tftpboo/ TFTP_Path.JPG

    So I after creating the winpe files I have copy the files in the /tftpboot/ folder path.

    I need to make it to PXE boot when I update it gives the " could not copy pxe binaries " , When try to update the setting to DHCP= yes , PXE mode: winpe . Do I need to install DHCP in the ubuntu server and configure as a integrated server ?

  • Dhcp doesn't matter where it is. I'm guessing this is a permission problem. I would double check your permissions on /tftpboot refer to the installation docs for the correct permission commands

  • This is the list. Is there a way I could give permission to all users full access for the tftpboot directory appreciated your help

  • Some of your files are owned by root which is going to be a problem. Run this to fix.

    chown -R www-data:www-data /tftpboot

  • Hi Admin.

    Please could you help with the below where that I can find or create the below file
    Configuration Files. this is from the document

    ;Config File For CloneDeploy Proxy DHCP Server

  • Proxy DHCP is a separate download from CloneDeploy, since it isn't required. Did you install the proxy? That's where that config file comes from.

  • Hi Admin.

    No I have not install the proxy. what will be executing command after downloading ?

  • Just a clarification, We release the dhcp from the firewall to the clients . So do we need to install the proxy in the clonedeploy server ? what will be the good option we can put in.
