09:20 fai-guywhere can i find a good tftpd setup howto ... i like to run tftpd on a different server than dhcpd
09:28 Mrfaioz_: no
09:29 Mrfaifai-guy: use the parameter next-server in dhcpd.conf
09:30 fai-guyMrfai: kewl, thx ...
09:33 fai-guyi generated with fai-chboot my pxelinux.cfg for the test host, there is "initrd=initrd.img-install" in it. but i dont have a initrd.img-install ... is it a bug or my fault ?
09:36 fai-guyin /srv/tftp/fai is only a vmlinuz-install which will loaded correctly
09:47 Mrfaivmlinuz-install is only used in FAI < 3.2.
09:47 Mrfaiin FAI >=3.2 we use something like vmlinuz-2.6.18-5-486 and initrd.img-2.6.18-5-486
09:47 fai-guyok, i use 3.2.4
09:48 fai-guybut why fai-chboot generates this entry ?
09:48 Mrfaifai-chboot -h: I have fai-chboot version 3.4.3 15-november-2007

10:41 fai-guyok, i changed the file by hand and now it works, but why does it generate these entries
10:42 MrfaiI guess you have also initrd.img-install in your nfsroot. man fai-chboot, look for -s

10:56 Mrfaifai-guy: remove (rm) your entries in pxelinux/.cfg directory, Then recreate them using fai-chboot. It must not create an entry with initrd.img-install, because the string install is not used in fai-chboot
10:58 fai-guyok, i deleted both C0A832DB and default and run fai-chboot again but there is vmlinuz-install again inside
11:03 Mrfaiwhat did fai-chboot -v..... say?
11:03 Mrfaido you have multiple nfsroot on this system? Maybe fai-chboot is looking into another nfsroot

13:04 schurighmm, I'm trying to boot a fai 3.2.4 nfsroot via pxe. Unfortunately, I get:
13:04 schurigBegin: Mounting root filesytem...
13:04 schurig /init: .: Can't open scripts/life
13:05 schurigis something wrong with my kernel command line?
13:05 schurigappend initrd=initrd.img-2.6.18-5-486 ip=dhcp root=/dev/nfs boot=life nfsroot=192.168.233.xx:/srv/fai/nfsroot,v3,tcp,nolock,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 FAI_FLAGS=verbose,createvt FAI_ACTION=install
13:12 Mrfaithis line looks good. I guess you do not have live-initramfs inside your nfsroot.
13:13 schurigMrfai: it's there:
13:13 schurigchroot /srv/fai/nfsroot/live/filesystem.dir dpkg -l "*initr*"
13:13 schurigii  live-initramfs    1.95.2-1          Debian Live initramfs hook
13:14 schurighmm, but I just found out: it's "boot=live", not "boot=life"
13:19 Mrfaiuse fai-chboot to create your pxelinux.cfg files
13:24 schurigMrfai: okay, did that
13:24 schurigMrfai: now the nfsroot get's mounted
13:24 schurigMrfai: but it starts busybox
13:24 schurigMrfai: if I do "ls", I can see that it's the nfsroot, e.g. there's live, live.log, live.vars in it
13:25 Mrfaino, that inside the initrd I guess
13:25 Mrfaiyou may need to add root-server to dhcpd.conf, since fai-chboot does not add your server IP address to the nfsroot= definition
13:26 schurigokay
13:53 schurigMrfai: fai-chboot made things worse
13:53 schurigMrfai: now I can see in my syslog: RRQ from 192.168.233.11 filename fai/pxelinux.0
13:54 schurigMrfai: and I can see on the computer that it first tries to pxelinux.cfg/<mac>, than pxelinux.cfg/<ip-in-hex> and so on, but I don't see any additional RRQ line from in.tftpd
13:55 schurigMrfai: also, in pxelinux.0 binary has a date from today now, so I guess somehow this got updated
13:59 Mrfaithis is all fine.
13:59 Mrfaidid you set next-server in dhcpd.conf?
14:00 schurigMrfai: no, just "server-name"
14:00 Mrfaiyou have to use next-server with newer dhcp daemons
14:01 schurigMrfai: thanks, looks much better now
14:02 Mrfaifrom the fai changelog:   * dhcpd.conf: next-server is needed in dhcpd3 >=3.0.3
15:37 schurigHmm, I still have a problem. Somehow the nfsmount never works. I tries to mount, fails, and put's me in the busybox shell.
15:38 schurigfrom a different box, I can "mount -t 192.168.233.xx:/srv/fai/nfsroot /tmp/x" without any problem
15:39 schurigbut from the busybox, I cannot do "nfsmount 192.168.233.xx:/srv/fai/nfsroot /tmp/x" (and also not with the usual options, like -t v3,nolock,soft,...)
15:39 schurigI already tried "unfs3" and "nfs-user-server" (on Debian Etch)
15:41 schurigwith "unfs3" I get something about response too short, with nfs-user-server i just get "rpc failed: 2"

15:48 h01germikap, Tip 2: fai is another way to get a "cloned" system... :)
15:51 schurignfsmount sucks
Action: oz_ thinks "ubuntu sucks more"
15:52 oz_not a very productive comment, sorry.
15:54 oz_is it normal with newer nfsroots that there is just one single folder in it?
15:54 oz_called "live"?
15:55 oz_fai-setup just told me that everything went fine, but sowhat this nfsroot looks strange to me
15:56 Mrfaioz_: yep, this is normnal
15:57 schurigoz_: no, the nfsmount that is used inside fai's initial ramdisk can only be used with nfs-kernel-server. It refuses to mount if the NFS server is run by unfs3 (a userspace NFS) or by nfs-user-serv (a different user-space NFS server)
15:57 oz_okay, so one needs "boot=live" as kernel parameter?
15:58 oz_schurig: user-space-nfs is not really an alternative to kernel-nfs
jcastang (~jcastang@laptop-147-210-128-147.labri.fr) left irc: Quit: Ex-Chat
15:58 oz_I tried it some time ago, and I got a lot of permission problems, but I can't recall it in detail.
15:59 schurigoz_: user-space-nfs worked without any problem an older fai (where the kernel did directly mount nfs, without an initial ramdisk)
15:59 oz_schurig: just sweitch to kernel-nfs (if you can, for me it was easy) and you should be fine
15:59 schurigoz_: yeah, but finding this out did cost me 4 hours. Therefore: it used to work with older fai, now it doesn't, the culplit is nfsmount, so nfsmount sucks
16:00 oz_find the diff, and fix it, then.
16:00 oz_:-)
16:00 Mrfaioz_: you should use fai-chboot.
16:00 oz_Mrfai: why? and how do you know that I haven't called it yet?
Action: oz_ is stunned
16:01 Mrfaischurig: fai >3.2.x now recommends nfs-kernel-server, and not user space server any more.
16:01 oz_I did not switch to k-nfs because of fai, iirc
16:01 oz_I think because of the homedirs and some programs.
16:01 Mrfaischurig: so this is a minor hit that FAI works best using nfs-kernel-server :-)
Action: oz_ just fired up the amd64box (zubuntu 7.10) to install a i386 box
16:03 oz_nfsroot was created on another i386 box, though
16:04 schurigMrfai: maybe the "recommend" is not enought. It actually doesn't work with neither unfs3 nor nfs-user-server.
16:05 schurigMrfai: but you can also not change that into a "conflict", because if someone doesn't use nfs-booting at all with fai, then it would be perfectly OK to have another NFS daemon installed
16:06 schurigMrfai: so maybe fai-setup should emit a big, fat warning that it doesn't work with one of those two packages
16:09 Mrfaischurig: patches are welcome :-)
ErKa (keryell@m2.wifi.enstb.org) left irc: Remote host closed the connection
16:10 schurigokay, now the nfs-installation did succeed
Action: oz_ is eager if his fai-zubuntu setup work now
16:17 oz_sowhat it always stops with "Can't open /scripts/live" ...
16:17 schurigoz_: hmm, so far I did about 100 fai-setups, just today I switched to 3.2.4 and run into a bunch of time-consuming problems
16:17 oz_... and this is correct, it's not there.
16:18 schurigoz_: it should be there, e.g. you should have a /srv/fai/nfsroot/live/filesystem.dir/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/live
16:18 schurigschurig: if you don't have it, the your make-fai-nfsroot had a problem
16:19 oz_schurig: that is present
16:19 oz_but somewhow I think that is needed in the initrd as well?
16:19 schurigoz_: yes, in the initrd it is needed as well
16:20 oz_it's known bug in 3.2.1

16:35 oz_I wonder...http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=444079 tells to remove live-initramfs from NFSROOT and add nfs-common...
16:35 oz_let's see.
16:36 Mrfaiif you remove live-initramfs FAI will no work.
16:37 Mrfaisorry not that easy.
16:37 Mrfailive-initramfs can be removed from NFSROOT, since now the package fai-nfsroot depends on it
16:37 oz_thx for that info...somewhat I read this in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=444079
16:37 MrfaiSo it's really needed.
16:38 oz_ah, it's just no needed in NFSROOT anymore, okay
16:38 oz_Mrfai: any recommendation for a apt-get repo for ubuntu?
16:39 oz_should be fine it I youre the cologne repository, or not?
16:39 Mrfaiyep, koeln should be fine
16:39 ctpMrfai: last trouble i have is that my "append ..." line after fai-chboot is too long. bootstrapping the client fails cause the last parameters are not interpreted. the line:

16:41 Mrfaicheck if cat /proc/cmdline has the whole line
16:41 Mrfaithen check variables.log
16:41 MrfaiI remember, there was a problem with longer kernel append lines. I have to look for it again
16:44 ctpMrfai: ok, i made the append line shorter:
16:44 siretartoz_: I have to admit that I have been incredibly busy at work, so I couldn't really look after fai in ubuntu

16:45 oz_siretart: if you can offer some contract: I have some free time ;)

16:47 ctpMrfai: hmhm
16:47 oz_ctp: yea, but may ppl asked me to try it. :-(
16:47 ctpi was asked too :-)
16:47 oz_just because ubuntui has the fancy look, and the "additional drivers" as they say
16:48 oz_so I do it. Did so many sicj thing when I dealt with solaris... I fear nothing anymore. :)
16:49 oz_ctp: best would be, if one you run "fai-cd" from it...

20:33 siretartoh, sounds like a problem in your pxelinux config
20:33 tostadobut on the server there is an empty pxelinux.cfg dir
20:33 siretartplace a file called 'default' with the config in it
20:34 tostadowhich config ?
20:34 siretartyour pxelinux config. what kernel and what initrd with whta kernel parameters to boot
20:35 tostadohmm... seems i have to study a bit pxelinux....
20:35 siretartgood idea :)
20:36 ctph01ger: hm, "yes yes | ssh myserver" doesnt work. it does not pipe the "yes" :-( is it a standard behaviour that the clients ask to accept the server's ssh key manually? it happens after fai has reported the install duration (so performing task_chboot)

20:53 tostado@siretart: ok, the kernel boots now. Then i get a kernel panic... shit
20:53 siretarttostado: unionfs related?
20:54 tostadovfs: cannot mount root fs    or so...
20:54 tostadoi just have 1 sec to see the error... then it scrolls away
20:54 siretartI remember a launchpad bug against the ubuntu kernel for that
20:55 siretartI'd suggest to install feisty in the nfsroot
20:55 siretartand install gutsy from that
20:55 tostadocannot open root device "nfs" or so...
20:56 tostadowe had gutsy in the nfsroot and fried with feisty now
20:56 tostadothe same....
20:57 siretartI use feisty nfsroot at my university with stock kernels, so I can confirm that this works
20:58 tostadoforgot the say that the gutsy server is a xen host, maybe that could be a hint ?
20:59 siretartoh yes, xen is broken
20:59 siretartI've been able to trigger strange segfaults when running inside xen, which are not reproducible outside
20:59 siretartthis is also documented in some bugreport
21:00 siretartinterestingly, they happened only with fai for me
21:00 siretartcf https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fai/+bug/159536
21:02 tostadoyes i had the same error, but we could fix the segfaults. But anyway, the best should be to use a clean ubuntu server install ...
21:03 siretarttostado: how did you fix the segfaults?
21:04 tostado(hope i remember it  well enogh) when fai-setup makes a debootstrap, it needs to move the tls libs out of the way
21:05 tostadomv $NFSROOT/lib/tls $NFSROOT/lib/tls.disabled
21:06 tostadothis line i inserted in the make-fai-nfsroot script
21:06 tostadowe had the same problem with debootstrap and xen-tools
21:12 siretarthm. I remember to have had libc6-xen installed. hmmm
21:13 h01gerctp, man ssh :)
21:13 h01gerlibc6-xen takes care of disabling tls. afaik thats the only diff to libc6
21:14 tostadobut that could be the same problem, different fix... mine wasn't the cleanest fix
21:14 tostadoi will try on another server...
21:15 tostadowhat will be easy for us when we want to install ubuntu feisty on the clients: a ubuntu oder debian server running fai-server ?
21:16 siretarttostado: I'd say ubuntu, with the ubuntu-fai packages from the team's ppa
21:16 siretartbecause that's why I'm using myself
21:16 tostadothe team's ppa ?
21:17 ctph01ger, i've read it. i'm asking cause i am not sure if i have forgotten something to configure in fai configs. so in default installation fai clients do not accept server's ssh key automatically before task_chboot?
21:18 siretarttostado: https://edge.launchpad.net/~fai/+archive
21:23 h01gerctp, probably, dunno for sure. put that key in /etc/ssh/known_hosts in the nfsroot
21:23 ctpok
21:43 ctphm, anyone here has ever seen this message (task_chboot): "SERVER not defined. Can't change network boot connection"?
21:43 ctps/connection/configuration ;-)
21:58 tostadosiretart: thanks i will try them on a clean gutsy install
22:12 h01gertostado, as said, i cannot help you much with ubuntu...
22:15 tostadoh01lger: no problem, as long as others are helpful here :)
22:16 tostadoi will probably ask you again after the first successful installation ;)
