Re: [et-mgmt-tools] "Could not communicate with" error

Hi, list,

I'm new to cobbler/koan, so I'm hoping this is a newbie error. I've followed the guides on the wiki, added a system, and now I'm trying to create a Xen guest with koan. When I run:

koan --virt --server=bread --system=souffle

I get a python stacktrace:


and the error:

Could not communicate with bread:25151

cobblerd is running and I can telnet to its port, by host name. This is happening on loopback, so iptables shouldn't be in the way (and I tried stopping it as a test).

`cobbler list` looks like:

distribution : FC-6-xen-i386
profile : FC-6-xen-i386
system : souffle
distribution : FC-6-i386
profile : FC-6-i386
repo : fc6i386updates
repo : fc6i386extras

The machine is:

Linux bread 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6xen #1 SMP Wed Dec 20 15:28:06 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

(2.6.20 can be brought up with a trip on-site if it'd help) and the software versions are:


Odds are I'm missing a step/concept. Ideas/suggestions/pointers-to-TFM welcome.

If this is a fresh install, most likely you haven't rebooted so cobblerd didn't come on automatically.

/sbin/service cobblerd start

Otherwise it might be a firewall issue, in which case you want to unblock TCP port 25151.
