PXEboot Discovery for version 6.2.12

Latest response

I am trying to get Discovered Hosts to work. We have setup the network with external DNS and DHCP and have every thing configured on both the network and satellite server with Discovery and have updated the default templates but the hosts are not being discovered.

In a network trace we can see the packets coming across the network and none of the packets are blocked by firewalls or selinux.

When we boot the servers the are assigned all appropriate network information. We have booted more than one to make sure ip assignments work as expected and they do.

I can't figure out why Satellite is not seeing them. The client hosts eventually time out.

Has anyone gotten this to work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We use it daily via remote capsules on dedicated Provisioning networks, but conceptually similar.

So when your new system PXE boots is it downloading the Foreman Discovery image? and then loading into the foreman discovery screen? or are you not getting that far?
