[shane] LVM leaves nasty poo all over the place and is a nightmare to get rid of ...
[wdennis] Yup
[wdennis] But I thought vgremove/pvremove would get rid of it...
[shane] nope
[greg] nope.
[wdennis] And the "nope"s have it!
[wdennis] Why does it work tho when I re-install one of my DRP-installed hosts? B/c it has same LVM structure?
[greg] probably
[greg] I’ll probably need to post a new flow.
[greg] at some point that uses stage-chooser and a pre-stage to wipe the disk, but that is later.
rackneng
@rackneng
[wdennis] Booted the non-installing node with sledgehammer, and doing a dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M to wipe the disk..
[wdennis] Of course, it's a 2TB disk, so that'll run for a while...
[wdennis] We'll see what I get with the normal install thereafter

@rackneng
[andreas.holmsten] @wdennis the no root file system is exactly what i had to troubleshoot as well. First off d-i partman/auto expert_recipe string in the partitioning scheme is incorrect syntax. It should be d-i partman-auto/expert_recipe string. Secondly I moved:
`\
d-i partman/confirm_write_new_label boolean true
d-i partman/choose_partition select finish
d-i partman/confirm boolean true
d-i partman/confirm_nooverwrite boolean true
[andreas.holmsten] The single reason the default preseed and partitioning work is because of the incorrect syntax. Since no manual scheme is selected the default atomic scheme is
rackneng
@rackneng
[andreas.holmsten] I've now created a PR: digitalrebar/provision-content#52
[andreas.holmsten] Observe that I'm not really that good with preseed so my assumptions might be wrong but it's what resolved the issue for me
rackneng
@rackneng
[greg] @andreas.holmsten seems expert to me :D
[greg] I’ll review and pull it in

hi all - currently kicking the tyres to see if Rebar fits my use-case - looking good so far! I did run into this whilst attempting to pxe my first victim: "[0:1]TFTP: lpxelinux.0: transfer error: sending block 0" and the issue error seems to come from here https://github.com/digitalrebar/provision/blob/master/midlayer/tftp.go#L68. unfortunately i'm not familiar with Go and i'm unsure as to why that error has cropped up - can it just not find lpxelinux.0?
rackneng
@rackneng
[wdennis] @andreas.holmsten Thanks - together maybe we can get a good base partitioning template, and then (my hope) maybe collaborate on community partitioning templates
[wdennis] Also @greg / @vlowther - maybe a good idea to put all of the partitioning (d-i partman*) directives into the base partitioning template - right now they are spread out over the preseed template and the partitioning template
rackneng
@rackneng
[shane] @analbeard we're in a meeting - but check that your DRP Endpoint doesn't have an asymmetric routing issue. You might try to add --static flag to DRP start up, with the IP address from the interface on the provisioning machine side
Simon
@analbeard
thanks Shane, that's certainly a possibility - the environment might need a little more work first

[wdennis] Hey RackN folk - at an Ansible training today, they are still referencing Cobbler on their slide deck:
rackneng
@rackneng
[wdennis] Interesting - they keep mentioning Cobbler in their deck - strange for a dying OSS project to get such RHAT mentions…
[spector] The project is essentially “dead”. They release about 1 or 2 a year but it isn’t active at all
[wdennis] May be an oppt’y to reach out to RHAT folks and pitch your product (I’m sure you’ve probably thought of that already :) )
[spector] Yup, next time you see this go ahead and raise the hand and tell them all about Digital Rebar and to get with it!!!! We will of course reach out
rackneng
@rackneng
[vlowther] @analbeard -- Those are expected at a rate of about 1 per boot, it is the nic firmware initiating a download to get the size and then aborting the transfer.
[vlowther] It then pulls it for real after that.
[vlowther] Downgrading that log message to info priority has been on my list of things to do.
[vlowther] As long as the systems proceed to PXE boot, you can disregard it for now.
rackneng
@rackneng
[wdennis] Ok, I dutifully harangued the lead RHAT guy in the training about how Cobbler must die, and oh by the way, have you heard of RackN? =@
[wdennis] he said he doesn’t see a lot of Cobbler out on the consulting gigs; mostly RedHat Satellite (upstream = Foreman)

[shane] @gbuehler $welcome

@rackneng
[wdennis] @greg Any way to register DRP events when a node PXE's and pulls pxelinux.0, then the kernel & initrd, so we can see those in the Event Log?
rackneng
@rackneng
[vlowther] Not at this time.
rackneng
@rackneng
[wdennis] Roadmap?
rackneng
@rackneng
[wdennis] Would be great to know when the actual node installer boot happens…
rackneng
@rackneng
[vlowther] Open an issue, or else I will forget by the end of the day. :D

[wdennis] digitalrebar/provision#699
Simon
@analbeard
afternoon all! i'm still poking DRP - maybe a little further along the road now. I've done a fairly vanilla install, bound DRP to the interface I want to use (usign --static-ip), but I'm still unable to get any of the files in the tftpboot dir which obviously means the boot fails. I've tried connecting with a tftp client but that also fails with 'transfer timed out'
any suggestion as to where i'm going wrong here?
rackneng
@rackneng
[greg] Firewall rules?
Simon
@analbeard
yup i just clocked that about two minutes ago
