Fog client image upload Dell gx240
Posted on 2010-08-24
Fog server: Fedora 10, fog v.29 (didn't work with v.28 either)
client computer: Dell gx240 with Windows XP Pro
The problem in a nutshell:
Can't upload an image from a client to the server.
So here's my issue. I'm upgrading a lab of computers consisting of what I listed above. They all have Windows 2000 (yeah, it's for a school district) and I want them at XP SP3. So I installed XP on one and have configured it to my heart's delight in preparation for cloning it to fog so I can propagate it to the lab. So I was all ready to go. The problem is that right when the computer gets to the part where it uploads the image, it skips the nice progress bars and 20-30 minutes of uploading and goes right to restoring the MBR and rebooting. A sizeless image shows up on the fog server and that's it. I upgraded fog from .28 to .29 and that didn't help. I'm pretty much at a loss here. Fog has just always worked for me before and this weird bug with this Dell has stymied me. There are no networking issues as the Dell happily boots from the network and everything works fine right up to when the upload would start happening. Any thoughts?
