Symptoms

When attempting to pxeboot blades or system controllers, it fails with a timeout.

Impact

Pxeboot fails.

Conditions

This happens in the following scenarios: -- The steps to configure pxeboot have not been performed. -- The services provided by the image-server container have stopped working properly.

Workaround

To configure for pxeboot, be sure that a partition iso file has been imported, a partition has been configured and enabled, and the slots to boot are assigned to that partition. If those steps are performed properly, then it is possible the image-server services are no longer properly functioning. In that case, you can recover using either of the following workarounds: -- Restart the vcc-image-server container. -- Reboot the system controller.

Fix Information
