Could not open net1: Input/Output error see attaached. I have tried using net0 but same issue.

We are working this issue via Service case.  Thanks for reporting.

Any idea on when it will be fixed as I need to install the OS and won't be able to test it once I install it.

Sorry, I may have mis-spoken in my previous post, I don't think there is a formal support case currently open for your issue. 

 

I looked at your screenshot with our OS deployment developer and our first impression is that the PXE utility is trying to connect to LXCA on a port that is missing connection somewhere in the environment; the error message you are showing is your server reporting that it can't see the LXCA at all via this device rather than anything going wrong on the LXCA side.  Can you confirm that the network device at that mac address showing for Net1: has a physical connection to your network and that that part of the network has a clear path back to your LXCA?  

 

If you think all the connections are intact the next step would be to open a support ticket.

Hi Sard,

 

That fixed that part as the deployment starts but it now fails with the attached error. I can't install the OS from a USB as it doesn't see the Virtual  drive created in raid. I have even tried the software deployment in the system settings of the server and it doesn't see the OS files on the USB drive.

 

I have been trying for over a week now to get this OS installed.

I managed to get this resolved by installing from a CIFS share.
