So I have a number of servers I’ve used MAAS to build and configure, but one of them is misbehaving. I’m using the latest snap instal of MAAS:
$ sudo snap list maas Name Version Rev Tracking Publisher Notes maas 3.2.4-12012-g.91c5952db 23425 3.2/stable canonical✓ -
When I power it up - it boots to PXE and lets MAAS control things properly, and when it comples comissioning it comes up with ‘Power error’ at the top next to the hostname:
The only detail it shows me is at the top of the logs: Failed to query node’s BMC
I’ve tried a number of things to resolve it, but it keeps coming back with every attempt.
Here’s a list of the things I’ve done:
- Updated the drivers, bios, iDrac, Network and everything Dell would have me update.
- Removed the system from MAAS, and rebooted again.
- Removed the system from MAAS, rebooted the iDrac, removed the MAAS user from the iDrac, and rebooted again.
- Verified the connection to the switch is running at the proper speed (1gbps) on both sides of the connection.
These have all failed. I have 4 or 5 other hosts on similar hardware make and model working flawlessly.
What can I do to properly diagnose this problem and figure out how to fix it?
