MD now won't PXE boot . . .
« on: November 17, 2006, 10:46:03 am »
After auto updating to .42 my installation got totally messed up so I did a fresh install.  Everything was fine & my MD was fully functional until this morning I when rebooted my MD to discover that it now won't boot . . . although it actually seems to boot fine but stops after a few seconds with the message "connect: Network is unreachable". Any ideas anyone?

Please check and see if your cables are pluged in because we had the same problem because of a broken cable.

I tried different cables but the problem still occurs.  Here is a link to a screen shot of where the boot halts:



I take it that no one else is experiencing this??

I don't know of anyone else that is getting that problem.

Maybe try a rebuild image for the MD and see if that helps. Since you have started with clean install it won't be losing much.

If that doesn't work - completely delete the MD and add a new one. This worked for one of mine that was hanging up at one point (previous release)

Have you got more than one MD and are thje others working?
