We recently tried to update qlustar to the 11.0.1 version adding UEFI support and CentOS 7.8. Since then, we got several problems with dnsmasq.
First, the directory /var/lib/tftpboot/ was missing so we created it manually and added symbolic links to the files specified in the administration manual section 4.1.2.
It solved part of the problems we had, but now, while running systemctl status dnsmasq, we get the following error:
dnsmasq-tftp: file /var/lib/tftpboot/grubnet.i386-pc not found
Could you tell us where we could find this file?
Thanks in advance for your help.
I´m deploying a head-node in a Virtualbox VM with a FE VM and 2 demo nodes (beo-01/2). After follow the doc guide's instructions, i have the head node up with perfect state but login-c and beo nodes couldn't get started. Anybody knows the reason and how to fix that?
The Qlustar team is happy to announce the immediate availability of Qlustar
11.0.1 for download . This minor release has two new features: a) Full
UEFI support for the Qlustar installer and PXE booting of nodes. b) The move
to CentOS 7.8 as the new supported minor CentOS 7 version.
The Qlustar installer now transparently supports installation on legacy PC
BIOS hardware as well as machines running under UEFI. If you have the choice,
we recommend using the UEFI mode on your hardware.
Our PXE booting mechanism has been doubly revamped: Firstly, we use GRUB as
the boot loader now per default and secondly, we fully support UEFI based
hardware transparently. So it will not matter whether your hardware runs
under UEFI or PC BIOS, it should just boot fine, once registered correctly
under QluMan. Reverting to booting with PXELINUX on PC BIOS machines is
supported if needed/desired.
Please follow the special update instructions  of the latest security
announcements when updating and if you use QluMan singularity images, make
sure you download  the latest version.
This is the last feature addition to Qlustar 11. We now work at full steam on
the Qlustar 12 release based on Ubuntu 20.04 and scheduled for some time
later this year.
