SystemImager Problem
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hi FT ,

Im getting problem with SystemImager . Before I'm explaining the problem , following is my details setup

Server : Debian Etch
SystemImager version : 3.6 (Im using apt-get install systemimager-server without adding any source file in /etc/apt/source.list)
PXE server
DHCP
TFTP

Golden Client 1 : Debian Etch
SystemImager version : 3.6 (Im using apt-get install systemimager-client without adding any source file in /etc/apt/source.list)

Golden Client 2 : Red Hat Enterprise 3
SystemImager version : 3.8 (using the rpm package)




I have successful installation on both server and client without having any error.I'm using PXE to boot a target client and its work for the debian client.I'm getting error on rhel client . For details pls find attached figure.

Im suspecting there is something that i have to make changes on the installation script for the partion part.

Herewith I'm also attached my auto install script.

I need your experience and expertise to help me find out the solution.

Thanks

I don't see any errors in the image you posted.
Is the hardware of the RHEL system the same as on the system on which you created the image, or has it changed?

Hi FT ,

Following is my new SI setup

Server ( Debian Etch - 2.6.18-4-686)
SytemImager Server version 3.8.0
Edit source.list to use package from:
deb http://oscar.gforge.inria.fr/debian sid main
deb-src http://oscar.gforge.inria.fr/debian sid main
run apt-get update
run apt-get install systemimager-server
PXE Server
TFTP server
DHCP Server

Golden Client 1 ( Debian Etch - 2.6.18-4-686)
SytemImager Client version 3.8.0
Edit source.list to use package from:
deb http://oscar.gforge.inria.fr/debian sid main
deb-src http://oscar.gforge.inria.fr/debian sid main
run apt-get update
run apt-get install systemimager-client

Golden Client 2 ( RHEL v 3 - 2.4.21-4.EL)
SytemImager Client version 3.8.0
Install from rpm package

No problem occur during both installaion on server and client side.

This time i got problem on auto installation via network on both clients.

On Debian Client
1) create /tftp/debian/
2) Copy kernel and initrd.img from /var/lib/systemimager/images/debian/etc/systemimager/boot/ to /tftp/debian
3) Install the client via network boot
Error kernel panic ( refer picture debian.bmp)

On Debian Client
1) create /tftp/rhel/
2) Copy kernel and initrd.img from /var/lib/systemimager/images/rhel/etc/systemimager/boot/ to /tftp/rhel
3) Install the client via network boot
Error FATAL: kernel too old( refer picture rhel.bmp)

herewith I'm also attached my tftp configuration files for you reference.

Hope you can help me ... I have spent about 2 weeks on systemiamger. Maybe u can give suggestion to me which version on SI or which linux version is suitable for SI Server.

Thanks in advance

Besides , I'm also trying to use UYOK.

On golden client

On SI Server
si_getimage --golden-client 192.168.10.30 --image rhel

I'm not sure why this happpens, but have you tried the autoinstall diskette? That used to work for me.

Hi FT ,

I'm re setup my SI server. Following is my new setup

Server : Debian Etch
SystemImager version : 3.6 (Im using apt-get install systemimager-server without adding any source file in /etc/apt/source.list)
PXE server
DHCP
TFTP

Golden Client 1 : Debian Etch
SystemImager version : 3.6 (Im using apt-get install systemimager-client without adding any source file in /etc/apt/source.list)

Golden Client 2 : Red Hat Enterprise 3
SystemImager version : 3.8 (using the rpm package)

Golden Client 3 : Centos 5
SystemImager version : 3.8 (using the rpm package)

Results:

I have successful installation on server and client without having any error.I'm using PXE to boot a target client and its work for debian and centos client.

Again having problem with RHEL 3 . I'm trying to boot from autoinstall diskette but still having problem (pls refer figure attached).

Its look like the SI working on kernel 2.6. My RHEL is kernel 2.4

That could be the problem, but I don't know how to fix it. :(
