Hello guys! hope everyone is doing alright.
14:11
Would someone be able to shed some light on a specific issue in regards to PXE booting errors when attempting to boot to the LTSP server?
14:20
I have a WinServer2012R2 that is acting as NAT/DC/DNS/DHCP for a test environment. I would like to setup a LTSP server to serve images to thin clients. I have this up currently in VirtualBox. I've configured DHCP to point to the LTSP server, and also the created CHROOT image from the "ltsp image /" command. I've set the path to the .img file as the
14:20
Boot image. When it comes time for the thin clients to boot I get 2 specific pxe boot errors. Heres the screenshot: https://imgur.com/LwxC6nh
14:21
I've tried accessing those links it suggested in the pxe.org site but they dont seem to exist any longer. Would someone be able to help me?
14:47
<alkisg>
Wowy, after transferring the image you also need `ltsp kernel` and `ltsp ipxe`
15:08
<Wowy>
Hello alkisg after the / image was create I ran ```ltsp ipxe``` so I'll try ```ltsp kernel```
15:08
<alkisg>
ah sorry misread the image
15:09
this just means an old ipxe version
15:09
is the client vbox?
15:09
<Wowy>
yes VirtualBox6.1.10 On Ubuntu 20.04
15:11
Here is my WindowsServer DHCP options: https://imgur.com/webEunl
15:12
<alkisg>
Wowy: vbox's internal ipxe is broken, use ipxe.iso instead
15:12
<Wowy>
I wanted to make sure that this format is also proper. I initially thought this was the issue.
15:12
<alkisg>
it advertizes things that it doesn't have
15:12
either use the intel emulation of vbox (the extensions),
15:12
or ipxe.iso, ipxe.dsk, something from boot.ipxe.org
15:13
ignore completely what I said about ltsp kernel and ltsp ipxe above, I misread the screenshot due to hurry
15:26
<Wowy>
no problem, one other question, is the BootFile parameter set properly inside of the DHCP?
15:27
Or can I point it like so `/srv/ltsp/images/x86_64.img`?
15:53
<alkisg>
Wowy: bootfile is a long story, it needs to be different for bios/uefi/ipxe
15:54
https://ltsp.org/advanced/isc-dhcp-server/
15:54
It's usually easier to use proxydhcp, than real dhcp; but the page above ^ has a proper example configuration anyway
16:12
<Wowy>
I checked out the isc-dhcp documentation. I can edit the network parameters to fit the vbox network. So should I simply leave the BootFile option blank?
16:17
<alkisg>
If you mean in your main dhcp, and then to use the ltsp server's proxydhcp, then sure

Ok, I will try it that way. I'll see if that configuration works for the network requirements. Thank you alkisg

Hey there alkisg sorry to bother once more. I solved the PXEbooting into the LTSP image selection menu. https://imgur.com/a/KJ32YWn As you had said for me to use proxydhcp. which now works. However when I select the image for it to boot here is what happens. https://imgur.com/hucOo5O The image fails to boot, it looks like PXE is looking for
18:23
`/ltsp/ltsp.img` which is not the name of the image name. Here is where the chroot image was placed. https://imgur.com/nEnzFMd I did not change any ltsp settings? Is there perhaps a setting I forgot to set?
19:00
<alkisg>
Wowy: you need to run `ltsp initrd` at least once
19:00
!install
19:00
<ltspbot`>
install: To install LTSP: https://ltsp.org/docs/installation/

Thank you alkisg! I've read the rest of the documentation. Thank you for showing that to me I was using a third party site lol.
20:21
I got to work perfectly, However one last thing. I did not find a section on silent boot. Is there a way for me to turn off the menu and kernel boot messages and have the login screen come up. The reason is because I cannot have none of the options in the beginning to show up since I'm having this for a bunch little kids in a day care.

I want to give a great thanks to the LTSP project. I have setup a LTSP setup at the youth club where I work, and it runs great on out quite outdated hardware, and I have to say I'm really impressed with how easy it was to setup.
