Dell M630 PXE boot Fails

Hello Community,

I have setup Vsphere  auto deploy server and configured DHCP scope + tftp . Dell M630 blade starts PXE over IPv4 , gets the IP from DHCP and dowloands (NMB- undionly.kpxe.vmw-hardwired) ) from tftp but boot fails at   : PXE Device1: Integrated NIC1 Port 1 Partition 1

Am I missing anything in my blade config ? Below is the screen shot of error log on tftp

Thanks

Hi,

I do not see the attached image. Which NIC are you using? Is the CMC, system BIOS and NIC firmware up to date? What are you using for your PXE server? Ipxe may have issues with NIC partitioning if it is not up to date.

Hello,

Thanks for your response. Below is the information

Vcenter , vsphere auto deploy  and tftp server installed on Windows 2012 

Dell M630 blade info

System BIOS Version 2.2.5

Model : PowerEdge M630

System CPLD Version -1.0.5

UEFI Compliance Version- 2.4

System Management Engine Version- 3.1.3.36

Hi,

 

I just solved same problem on R630 by changing BIOS BOOT parameters from UEFI to BIOS.

This change also worked for a "DELL EMC PowerEdge R740 Server [R740]".

Try changing the number of Max PF MSIX vectors to 0, which will let it choose the number on its own. There is a BIOS update that you may want to do. Is this in an M1000e or a VRTX? What switch is this connected to?

Hello,

I have changed Max PF MSIX  vectors to zero but no joy(boot still fails at Nic ). we use M1000e.

Many thanks

Is the PXE server also a blade? Is it on the same subnet?

PXE server was installed on vcenter. All the blades, chassis, vcenter and vsphere auto deploy are on the same vlan.

Many thanks
