for #1 - what is in the exports, users, users.local on the target server? does it allow connections from the DR appserver in the exports file?
for #2 - is the 2nd pxe server using the pxe.conf override or pulling it's config from the db? if the latter, it's probably handing out the ip of the primary tftp server and not the DR tftp.
exports = * rw
users = is blank
users.local = BLAdmins:BLAdmin rw,map=root
So it should allow connections from the DR App server.
All my PXE servers (I have 3 so far) are using the pxe.conf file with:
So that seems to be in order as well.
when you add the server you are doing it as BLAdmins:BLAdmin ?
can the DR appserver telent to 4750 on the target?
for the pxe, what is the ip of the tftp server in the pxe.conf file ? and is this 7.6 ?
is the DR pxe server pointed to the right db ?
Yes adding as BLAdmins:BLAdmin
Yes Telnet from DR server to target worked.
Yes PXE database was pointed correctly (it wasn't originally as I got a DB connection failure in the log, but I found your post on using 'blasadmins -s _pxe' and corrected that and it started fine after that).
Each of the PXE servers has a correct pxe.conf (as evidenced by the fact that they started provisioning correctly as soon as we switched back to PROD).
The server I was trying to add had been provisioned when in Production, I had wanted to try provisioning a new server and adding that but when I tried to provision a new server with Linux the Target server had a Cannot find dummy image error on its console.
Could you point me to where/if this exists?
#1 - there is something blocking the connection to the agent - can you run an 'agentinfo' from the appserver on the target ? if it's not that then i'm not sure - the exports seems ok
#2 - what hf of 7.6 are you on, dr and prod should be the same, so check that too.
I identified the issue I think, I'll have to test it during the next DR test we run.
MaxJobs was set to 0, this was to ensure all jobs ran on the Production server.
