Autodeploy not working, I suspect TFTP server but not sure how/what to test

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I have successfully set up autodeploy may times in the past, but this time around I'm trying to use Rapsberry Pi as my TFTP server and something's not quite right and I have a feeling it's my TFTP server.

vCenter is 6.5
I am using Raspberry Pi for my TFTP server and DHCP.

I am using an app to test my DHCP settings which look good to me, Option 66&67 look correct to me:

When I attempt to boot a client these are the results I get:

I strongly suspect there is a configuration issue on my TFTP server. Is there a simple what to browse to it and to see what my boot from LAN clients are seeing when they attempt to boot from it? I'd like to eliminate any permissions issues, maybe the TFTP server isn't even responding, but since it UDP I'm not sure if I can even telnet to validate the port?

Any troubleshooting steps specific to TFTP would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Thanks for the troubleshooting steps, the issue is definitely on the TFTP server side.
