Thread: Fail to load boot image?

  1. Fail to load boot image?

    Dear All
    I modified my vxworks ppc node bootChange parameters to boot the
    kernel image from a Linux node , as the following:
    'boot device : motfcc
    unit number : 0
    processor number : 0
    host name : craftpc
    file name : /tmp/vxWorks.ppc
    inet on ethernet : 172.18.212.1:ffff0000
    host inet : 172.18.128.1
    user : www
    ftp password : 123456
    flags : 0xa
    target name : bs
    other : motfcc'
    But when I boot my vxWorks node, it will hang on the following
    message :
    'Attached TCP/IP interface to motfcc
    Attaching network interface lo0 ... done
    Loading ... 2217740'
    It will wait here endlessly . I tried for tcpdump on my Linux node ,
    as the following :
    '[root@om tmp]# tcpdump |grep 172.18.212.1
    tcpdump: listening on eth0
    08:53:14.121540 arp who-has 172.18.212.1 tell 172.18.212.1
    08:53:14.131540 arp who-has om tell 172.18.212.1
    08:53:14.131540 172.18.212.1.1024 > om.ftp: S 2078917053:2078917053(0)
    win 8192
    08:53:14.131540 om.ftp > 172.18.212.1.1024: . ack 2078917275 win 5792
    (DF)
    08:53:14.141540 172.18.212.1.1024 > om.ftp: R 2078917275:2078917275(0)
    win 8192
    08:53:19.961540 172.18.212.1.1024 > om.ftp: S 2078917053:2078917053(0)
    win 8192
    08:53:19.961540 om.ftp > 172.18.212.1.1024: S 3380833172:3380833172(0)
    ack 2078917054 win 5792 11,nop,wscale 0> (DF)
    08:53:19.961540 172.18.212.1.1024 > om.ftp: . ack 1 win 8192
    '
    As you see, ftp process is in progress . Can you please let me know
    why my vxworks node does not come up and it just waits on Loading with
    no end?
    Thank you

    you have to enable an DHCP in the Linux computer.
    vxworks try first to get an ip address. only after that it will download the image.
    you also need to config that the ppc mac address will get the IP you want and not some arbitrary one.

    good luck,
    Eli
