via epia sn18000g boot problem (SOLVED)
« on: March 31, 2008, 08:20:45 pm »
Ok!

I received my NEW VIA EPIA 18000G today...

I "trew away" my "old" via epia 6000 ML, and went to my bedroom, all happy to try my new toy...

and then...

at boot sequence it starts to looping/repeating following text:
****************
IP-Config: eth0 complete (from 192.168.80.1):
  address: 192.168.80.252  broadcast: 192.168.80.255
  getaway: 192.168.80.1  dns0 : 192.168.80.1
  rootserver: 192.168.80.1 rootpath:
  filename : /tftpboot/pxelinux.0
IP-Config: eth0 complete (from 192.168.80.1):
  address: 192.168.80.252  broadcast: 192.168.80.255
  getaway: 192.168.80.1  dns0 : 192.168.80.1
  rootserver: 192.168.80.1 rootpath:
  filename : /tftpboot/pxelinux.0
IP-Config: eth0 complete (from 192.168.80.1):
  address: 192.168.80.252  broadcast: 192.168.80.255
  getaway: 192.168.80.1  dns0 : 192.168.80.1
  rootserver: 192.168.80.1 rootpath:
  filename : /tftpboot/pxelinux.0
....
********************

no end to see...

the file pxelinux.0 is there...

?!?!?!?

I've had this issue before.  I found a typo in the configuration file for my diskless machine.  I have no idea how it got there, but i suggest giving them quick look for obvious typos.  I don't remember the actual typo, or even where they are located, I can't check at the moment.  The config files are in a subdirectory of /tftpboot/ and it was a very small file.

I remember my problem was a line had a carriage return in the middle of it, splitting one line in half, the other half underneath itself.

Every month or so this happens and I have to fix it.

Or you can just delete it from the webadmin and re-install it.  I'm finding this is becoming best practice with this software.  Reinstalling stuff to fix things.

If this is a new MD, sorry I don't know.  Except check the default configuration file for typos instead.
