Subject: [9fans] PXE tftpload: file does not exist
Date: Mon, 17 Jul 2023 17:37:52 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <A46F574D-76BB-48D4-B6AC-F113145DC588@germteig.com> (raw)

I have a standalone file server, and a separate standalone auth server.

I tried to pxe boot a cpu server.
It gets the /386/9boot to load fine, but then it seems, that it can’t retrieve the file /cfg/pxe/<mac address> from my file server.

here is the screen output during bootup:
        9boot gz…starting protected-mode loader at 0x900020
        Plan 9 from Bell Labs PXE boot loader
        cpu0: 1800MHz GenuineIntel Atom (cpuid: AX 0x106CA DX 0xBFEBFBFF)
        ELCR: CC80

        #l0: i82598: 10Gbps port 0XFE980000 irq 10: <mac address>
        498M memory: 498M kernel data, 0M user, 18M swap
        pxe on ether0 .
        <sysname> (!69): /cfg/pxe/<mac address> .T.T.T.T.T.T.T.T.T.Ttftpread1st: failed to connect to server (!69)

        tftpload: file does not exist

Which is strange, because I did create the file on my file server.
It looks like following:

Does anyone know what might be the problem?
