cant create an MD after latest update
« on: April 13, 2010, 05:01:00 pm »
Just wondering if anyone else was having problems creating MD's at the moment. After Diskless_setup the system reboots and i get
Code: [Select]
could not find kernel image moon#/vmlinuz
I have only tried on 1 PC but it used to work as an MD before i did a complete rebuild of core recently.

Look at the folder /tftpboot/moon#/

for example, I have three MDs, they are all in the /tftpboot/xyz/ folders. where xyz is a numeral with the respective md number.
Also, after rerunning diskless_setup.sh did you rebuild it from the gui? you may have to if you already had an MD and it got corrupt somehow.

Stallione.

The symlinks in /usr/pluto/disless/moon#/boot are probably broken.  Make sure the vmlinuz and initrd symlinks are pointing to the right files.  Correcting this should at least fix the error you're having.  You may also need to check the symlinks in /tftpboot/moon#.

Thanks Zaerc. The symlinks were broken but i couldn't work out how to fix.

I have solved the problem by running Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh and then deleting and recreating the MD from scratch.

I was just wondering why  Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh download nearly everything again when the Core was already up to date.
