Nothing in the PXE.conf file.
-- Set this value to "enabled" to turn logging on, or "disabled" to turn it off
-- log_file is the path to the file where logging information is written to
-- In the example case, since no directory is specified, the log file is
-- written to the working directory, which is the directory where
-- TftpServer.exe lives.
log_file=C:/Program Files (x86)/BMC Software/BladeLogic/8.1/PXE/br/tftp.log
-- Set this value to the timeout (in seconds) between packet exchanges. 5
-- seconds is sufficient for most networks, but if you are going over a
-- slow link, you might want to bump this up some.
-- This value specifies how many times to resend a timed out packet.
-- By default, the tftp server will operate in read only mode. That is,
-- read requests will be honored but write requests will be rejected.
-- This is a security feature to prevent people from writing spurious
-- files to your system.
-- Set this value to "enabled" to allow write requests to this tftp server.
-- Although it's seldom necessary, you may also set whether you want
-- the server to honor read requests.
-- By default, the tftp server doesn't allow you to overwrite files
-- that already exist in your tftp server directory. Set this option
-- to enabled to allow overwrites.
-- You may further set timeout, retries, and read/write permissions
-- on a per client basis. In the examples below, any requests coming
-- from 192.168.11.1 will get a larger timeout period, more retries,
-- and will only allow write requests, while 192.168.25.2 will
-- allow 30 retries before giving up.
in the tftp.conf there should be:
what is that? and does it match what's in the gui tab?
can you create the tftproot\X86PC\pxelinux path? there should be a few files to put into that directory - pxeboot.0, pxelinux.0, pxeboot.msg and pxelinux.err. those should have been installed w/ the product installer - they may be in your blade install path - PXE\tftproot\X86PC\pxelinux - can you check, otherwise, look in the provisioning-files.zip.
you should also look in the devices workspace and find the mac you are building if you don't see it, create a new device smart group where mac does not equal '' (blank/null) and see what the default boot image is set to.
Found this in
# Perform a local boot by default
# Always prompt
# Display the bootup message
# Boot automatically after 300 seconds
# The rest of this file is machine-generated
that hex file will get automatically created by the pxe process during the target boot.
for the winpe image, your tftp server needs to be registered w/ the fqdn or ip as a manged device.
you should also refer to this docs:
as it's a pretty good walk through of setting up provisioning. i can't speak for the link you sent... some of it seems out dated and incomplete.
After you provision a server w/ blade, it will change the device state from ‘imported’ to ‘provisioning’, and if the box pxeboots, it will then boot off of the local disk instead of booting into winpe. though it will do the ‘pxelinux’ first to determine it needs to local boot.
If you have a box that has an OS and it’s set to pxe boot in the bios, you should manually register the max address w/ blade and set the state to provisioned. Otherwise if the box reboots, it will pxe boot, then load winpe and sit waiting to be provisioned.
