    no dhcp or proxydhcp offers were received

    Basilio Urrutia

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to provision a virtual machine that I created using BBSA but when I run the provision job and reboot the virtual machine I get the following error:

       

           no dhcp or proxydhcp offers were received

       

      I have the DHCP server and the PXE server on the same machine.

      I configured the option 60 in the DHCP server:

       

           General Option Values:

           OptionId: 60

           Option Value:

           Number of Option Elements = 1

           Option Element Type = STRING

           Option Element Value = PXEClient

       

      The virtual machine boots from network.

       

      What Am I doing wrong?

       

      Appreciate the help,

          And the DHCP service is running

          • 2. Re: no dhcp or proxydhcp offers were received

            Have you checked your pxe log?

              is the pxe server running?

                Hi,

                 

                Yes, the pxe server is running.

                 

                And the pxe.log show me the following:

                • 5. Re: no dhcp or proxydhcp offers were received

                  I don’t see the request coming in. Ensure port 4011 is listening and that you can telnet to that port from another system.

                    Hi,

                     

                    The port 4011 is listening but I can't telnet to this port from another machine...

                     

                    I can provisioning another virtual machine that I add to the BBSA but I can't provision the virtual machines that I create through BBSA.

                     

                    Why is this happening?

                    • 7. Re: no dhcp or proxydhcp offers were received

                      If you can’t telnet to that port, then check to make sure that the OS’s firewall is allowing traffic through that port.

                        The problem was that the network adapter wasn't connected.

                         

                        Thanks for the help!!

                         

                        Regards,

                          If the network adapter wasn’t connected, how was dhcp working?

                          • 10. Re: no dhcp or proxydhcp offers were received

                            I have a similar issue which I'm about to create a SR for.

                             

                            I can't seem to provision an VM's.

                            My PXE/DHCP/TFTP servers all running fine on a VM server and can provision stand alone servers perfectly.

                             

                            However if I try to provision a VM server it obtains the DHCP IP fine but fails to get a response from its query to port 4011.

                             

                            Has anyone else come across this before?

                            Obviously the DHCP and PXE servers are configured correctly as I can successfully provision standalone servers from the same provisioing server.

                             

                            Any help with this would be appreciated :-)

                             

                            Oh I'm running 7.6 release 274.

                              what does the network config of the esx hosts look like?

                               

                              are the VMs on the same subnet at the pxe/dhcp?

                               

                              anything in the pxe.log for the mac of your VM ?

                                Hi Bill,

                                 

                                What are you wanting to know about the networking environment? Is the information below enough?

                                 

                                PXE/DHCP server is on the same virtual switch as the bare metal server (BMS).

                                They are also on the same subnet 10.201.255.224/27

                                PXE is 10.201.255.225

                                BMS is 10.201.255.230-240 gets its IP via DHCP.

                                 

                                This is a private VLAN used for provisioning only.

                                 

                                Here is the pxe.log.
