http download failures
I am attempting to pxe chain boot with http download. The problem I am having is the file retrieval always just stops on one of the random files below, at some random % complete. Usually it is the boot.wim, but I assume this is only because it is the largest. It has stopped on a simple font file as well though.

What could be causing this sporadic download behavior?

If I attempt a windows download off the samba share where those files are, the download is 1-2 secs. If I wget it from a nix host its about the same. Only when pxe is attempting to retrieve them does it seem to have an issue. I am fairly new to all this so hopefully I am giving good info. Samba server is running via apache.

I have tried numerous builds of kernel and boot.wim. Frankly, Im at a loss.

Code:
<%#
kind: PXELinux
name: Windows PXELinux
oses:
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows Server 2012 R2
- Windows Server 2016
%>

DEFAULT linux
LABEL linux
KERNEL ipxe.lkrn
APPEND dhcp && chain <%= foreman_url('iPXE') %>
IPAPPEND 2

the chain then goes to:

Code:
#!ipxe

RE: http download failures
This is the same as http://stackoverflow.com/questions/38599...l-failures

After upgrade to the latest version of iPXE this issue was resolved.

Read FAQ before first post!
Are relevant ipxe.org error urls and PCIIDs included?
