I inherited an FSM chassis recently - and I have it in my lab and I'm learning more about it. I've convinced the managers to send me to IBM training - and I've been to several of the courses (NGT21, 41, and 51).
I've got FSM on the air - can log into it, etc.
My two switches (EN4093) I put into Easy Connect mode.
When I attempt to deploy a compute node with the default VMware 5.1 image, it always fails. Within a few seconds after deployment, the image fails with a timeout:
September 22, 2014 2:23:20 PM EDT-Level:2-MEID:28300--MSG: DNZFM8797E The operating system deployment process did not complete for compute node "10.111.13.99" ("28,300"). The image deployment process did not complete because the Flex System Manager could not mount the remote media "/dump/xcat/faketftp/xcat/isos/node28300.iso" to this compute node (error code of "ERR_OPERATION_TIMEDOUT"). Make sure the compute node is functioning and that there is a working network connection between the Flex System Manager and the compute node.
This same error happened during the NGT41 class - our instructor simply "called it in" to the helpdesk who runs the labs, who then came back an hour later and said "try it now" and it worked.
FSM can indeed ping the IMM on the target system. He has "access" .
Where am I going wrong?
Any tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated.
