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.

kind: PXELinux
name: Windows PXELinux
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows Server 2012 R2
- Windows Server 2016

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

the chain then goes to:


kernel gui
initrd  segmono_boot.ttf
initrd  segoe_slboot.ttf
initrd segoen_slboot.ttf
initrd     wgl4_boot.ttf
initrd              bootmgr.exe
initrd         BCD
initrd    boot.sdi
initrd boot.wim
