I am working on a new OpenStack deployment and noticed that a few nodes had some issues.
When I commission these nodes for the first time PXE work perfectly which leads me to believe that the driver exists. However, when i try and deploy Ubuntu 20.04 (ga & hwe) it does not work.
I snapped a picture of the PXE boot stage.
Notice how the server is answering and the efi file is displayed, but the filesize is 0 bytes.
The servers are configured to PXE boot on the 25G nics and VLAN untagged. I specifically avoid VLAN because i have had issues with that before.
I have two questions regarding this:
- How come it works on the first boot? (Commission)
I cannot successfully commission more than once.
- Anyone else tried deploying on these network cards?
Server: Dell PowerEdge R440
Network cars: BCM57414 NetXtreme-E 10Gb/25Gb RDMA Ethernet
Thanks in advance
