cobbler system powerstatus returns "Could not determine MAC [ ]"

Asked by Dafang Zhang on 2011-11-30

I followed pretty much everything detailed in the following blog and linked part1 and part2 post:

After getting the ubuntu-orchestra-server working, I was able to have servers to PEX-boot from it, but the following command line returns MAC address not determined:

sudo cobbler system powerstatus --name oneiric02.ubuntu.lan

The systems are set as oneiric-i386-juju profile. I tried poweron poweroff, all got the same result. Is there any suggestion to get the Orchestra power management to work?

Thanks in advance!

Resolved. The hostname need to be entered into the Power Management section via the cobbler_web interface.
