I’m very new to MAAS, I have 5 HP DL380p Gen 8’s equipped with the HP Mellanox dual port NICs Connectx-3 capable, using Mellanox DAC cables going into an Mellanox SX6036 with ethernet license enabled. The Mellanox cables are 40Gbe cables, NICs recognize speed as 40gbe etc. The Connectx-3 are definitely PXEboot capable. I followed all of the MAAS instructions, and have the region+rack controller set up. I’m just trying to enlist/comission the machines to get them recognized / showing up in MAAS as machines. When using the remote html5 console in ILO, I’m able to watch the boot process. It looks like the PXEboot process starts, but then quickly stalls out.
I see the following at the bottom of the boot up process:
lpxelinux.0 : 76040 bytes [PXE-NBP]
PXELINUX 6.04 lwIP 20191223 Copyright © 1994-2015 H. Peter Anvin et all
Failed to load ldlinux.c32
Boot failed: press a key to retry, or wait for the reset…
So I followed the instructions and kept waiting for that reset, kept watching it reset, and still no luck. Not sure where the source of the problem maybe or if anyone has similar experience with Mellanox stuff, would appreciate some pointers.
