[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
@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
palm has been vigorously applied to face
rackneng
@rackneng
[greg] :D
Simon
@analbeard
someone should bust me back down to first line for that
Simon
@analbeard
possibly a daft question, but would the serial console show anything when the victim has booted into the sledgehammer env? i can see it in the machine list so it's been successful, but there's nada on the console
rackneng
@rackneng
[greg] It will depend upon your hardware / env. We don’t pass a serial console, so it is linux defaults.
[greg] For packet, we add profiles that set the kernel-console parameter
[greg] To handle this case.
[greg] You can set that globally or on a machine or a profile to a machine.
[greg] Checkout the parameter kernel-console in the UX.
Simon
@analbeard
ok, that makes sense. it's not the end of the world, just nice to see some output to understand what's going on, especially whilst i'm just poking it. if we were to use it in production then it wouldn't matter
ok, will do. thanks!
rackneng
@rackneng
[greg] make sense. Also, if you setup the access-keys parameter (docs has some stuff on this), you can ssh in to the box as well.
[greg] @faq
[greg] in faq - 22.3
Simon
@analbeard
ah yes, that looks handy. thanks Greg!
rackneng
@rackneng
[greg] You can do the command in the doc to the global profile and it will be available to all machines all times.
Simon
@analbeard
ah yes i see what you mean, i can see a key for 'galthaus@Gregs-MacBook-Pro.local' in the root-access-example profile ;)
rackneng
@rackneng
[greg] well - you know. author privs and all
[greg] The main thing to remember is that the parameter has to be set on the machine (globally, or specifically, or by profile assignment) when the task ssh-access runs during the discover stage. That means for discovered things you have to have it globally set. Or set it after discovery and reboot.
Simon
@analbeard
sure, that makes sense. I think i've probably got enough to get something going now
thanks again!
Simon
@analbeard
hmm, I've had a machine PXE booted for half an hour or so but i'm unable to progress to an install:
Can not change bootenv while in a stage unless forced. old: sledgehammer new ubuntu-16.04-install
the machine is currently sitting in the discover stage according to it's info
rackneng
@rackneng
[greg] This means you have a task that didn’t complete I think.
