Name or service not known

Beitrag von jamesbond »

Hello everyone,

I need your help. I recently installed OPSI 4.3 on Ubuntu 22.04 using the quickinstall method. I'm using Windows Server as my DNS server. I added a client to OPSI and tried to install Windows 10.

The client connects to the OPSI server and boots normally, but before the installation begins, I get an error: 'Failed to resolve 'servername.test.tld' Error -2 Name or service not known'.

I've reinstalled OPSI 4.3 multiple times and ran health checks, which all came back green. I've attached a screenshot for reference.
Could you please help me :roll:

Thanks in advance

Hi

this is a name resolution error. Seems the fqdn is not resolved properly.
You'd have to check your dns settings if they are configured properly.

Regards
Mathias

Thanks for your quick response Mathias.

Here is how my resolv.conf looks like:
nameserver 127.0.0.53
options edns0 trust-ad
search domain.tld

Is there is anything else I have to check?
Thanks

Hello,

is your domain really domain.tld? Is your OPSI-Server really called "servername.test.tld"?

Without logs it's difficult to guess what happens in your case.
The client connects to the OPSI server and boots normally, but before the installation begins, I get an error: 'Failed to resolve 'servername.test.tld' Error -2 Name or service not known'.
I assume, your Client uses PXE /UEFI Netboot, you have created the Client in OPSI and have set a Netboot Product to "setup".
In this case, the DHCP Server seems to be configured correctly as it tells the client to connect to the OPSI-Server which in turn tells the client to do the netboot install.
But there seems to be a misconfiguration, as the Client tries to reach the opsi-server with "servername.test.tld".
Can you set the netboot product for your client to setup and post the content of the file "/tftpboot/opsi/opsi-linux-bootimage/cfg/01-MAC_ADDRESS_OF_CLIENT" here?

Hello Thomas,

No my server name is not domain.tld it is called something else but I just used domain.tld as an example.

Here is the output of the file:

Code: Alles auswählen

set timeout=0
menuentry 'Start netboot installation' {
set gfxpayload=keep
linux (pxe)/opsi/opsi-linux-bootimage/install-x64 initrd=miniroot-x64 video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr vga=791 quiet --no-log console=ttyS0 pckey=a545bdade59c599e9c7479c2acd7feec hn=vm dn=DOMAIN.TLD product=win10-x64 macaddress=08:00:27:ee:8e:38 service=https://HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.TLD:4447/rpc
initrd (pxe)/opsi/opsi-linux-bootimage/miniroot-x64
}
I have changed the server name in the log above to HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.TLD and the dn to DOMAIN.TLD.

Thanks

Ok, this looks about right, so please try the following:
When the Client displays the error switch to another tty by using the key-combination Ctrl-Alt-F3
Login with user: root / password: linux123
Issue command:

Code: Alles auswählen

nslookup HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.TLD
Take note of the responding DNS Server's IP Adress, it is the correct one?
If not, try issueing

Code: Alles auswählen

nslookup HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.TLD IP-OF-YOUR-DNS
The answers should indicate the IP-Address of your OPSI-Server.

nslookup doesn't seem to be installed. Here is the output after running nslookup in tty:

Code: Alles auswählen

-bash: nslookup: command not found

Hello again,

Since nslookup is not pre-installed when I swtiched to tty, I tried using ping and host commands:

Code: Alles auswählen

ping HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.TLD
I got:

Code: Alles auswählen

ping: HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.TLD: Name or sevrice not known
Output using the host command:

Code: Alles auswählen

host HOSTNAME
Host HOSTNAME: not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
I tried to ping other computer names within the network and I got a response but when I try to ping my opsi server from within the tty I won't get a response.

Thanks for your assistance

Hi,

then this means your opsi server is not reachable via DNS.
Please check the DNS configuration.

Mathias

Thanks. It got fixed.
I have added an A record of OPSI hostname and its IP to the DNS server which is the domain controller.
