Fresh installation stuck 8 minutes at boot

Hi everyone,

i did a fresh installation of IPFire 2.25 (x86_64) on my Hyper-V Server 2016 (Gen1 VM).
The system took 8 minutes to boot after the line “Setting up Pakfire Package Manager…”

I didn’t find much information in the logfiles. I think it has something to do with either the unbound service or the openvpn net2net connection. Maybe the problem only occurs on the x64 architecture beacuse I’m currently running the same version at x86 on the same server and there is no such problem.

I marked the 8 minutes interruption with ------------------------------

Hi,

which Core Update are you running? Do you happen to have a Intel NIC using the e1000e driver in place?

Thanks, and best regards,
Peter Müller

Hi Peter,

I tried it with the latest 2.25 core update 145.
I also did a new installation without importing the backup from the old system, so the N2N OpenVPN isn’t the issue. The problem occurs on the first boot after the installation.

Funny thing is, that I have the exact same version of IPFire running on the same host except it’s x86.

IPFire is virtualized, the NICs on the guest are Hyper-V virtual adapters, on the host I use the onboard NICs (Supermicro)

Best regards
Thomas

I further investigated the problem. There is an issue with the
detection of MS Azure. I bypassed the function running_on_azure() in the init script /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions by letting it always return 1, which means that we are not running on azure. This fixed the problem. So I think that the helper/azure-setup script takes 8 minutes to terminate.

Btw. you can abort the script during boot with ^C
Host OS: Windows Server 2016 Standard 1607

https://community.ipfire.org/t/installing-ipfire-into-local-hyper-v-unknown-credentials/899

I’m currently short of time but I’ll try to also debug the azure-setup script.

Best regards
Thomas

Hi,

could you please open a bug at https://bugzilla.ipfire.org/ (your login credentials work there as well) for this and/or submit patches to the development mailing list? We would love to have your fixes in IPFire… :slight_smile:

Please refer to https://wiki.ipfire.org/devel/ for further information on IPFire development in general.

Thanks, and best regards,
Peter Müller

https://bugzilla.ipfire.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12445

I’ll try to get my hands on a trial verision of MS Azure. Maybe there is a way to distinguish between Azure and Hyper-V

Regards
Tom
