I am trying to use Fedora32 in a VMware environment (in specific using VMware Virtual Cloud Directory).
I configured a new VM with the Fedora CoreOS 32 OVA template as base with
- static IP, no DHCP
- using a ignition config with a reference to a remote HTTPd holding an ign file
- …the remote HTTPd is in the same networking (192.168.100.5)
The VM has the following guest properties (simplified)
- guest.hostname = okd-bastion
- guestinfo.ignition.config.data.encoding = base64
- guestinfo.ignition.config.data = …base64-encoded
- guestinfo.afterburn.initrd.network-kargs = ip=192.168.100.6::192.168.100.1:255.255.255.0:okd-bastion:ens192:none:126.96.36.199
after start up I see only the failed ignition
ignition: GET error: Get “http://192.168.100.5/bootstrap.ign”: dail tcp 192.168.100.5:80: connect : network is unreachable
I have other VMs in the same network, e.g. a CentOS VM and from this instance is a
curl http : // 192.168.100.5/bootstrap.ign
successful (URL amended by restriction here for new users by spaces)
I have currently no idea where to investigate further. Debugging during startup is impossible.
I suppose the afterburn.initrd.network-kargs is not used, because
- I see in the log out put during startup some DHCP outputs, even I set “none” or “off”
- I do not see any “error messages” even if I use something like “ip=WRONG”
Any hints how to debug, or what is probably wrong in my configuration/installation?
Thanks in advance
