    During client pxe boot, client receives a valid ip address from dhcp server (also clonezilla server) and attempts to mount /var, /etc and /usr shares from clonezilla server. I get an error that the connection times out.

    I have found that it seems to be looking at the wrong ip address of my nfs server. My dhcp and nfs (clonezilla) server are 192.168.1.2. during mounting stage it is looking for 192.168.1.3 in which there is no nfs server. Clonezilla fails to run.

    After it returns to prompt I can see folders, create and see files on my clonezilla server (192.168.1.2 not 192.168.1.3).

    update:
    Environment is an Isolated network specifically for broadcasting images to computers. One server supplies all necessary functions. Server static address, clients dhcp assigned from 192.168.1.10 to 1.100. Server is running Ubuntu 13.10 (saucy salamander) with all updates. Have tested with Clonezilla live with full success.

    This is weird... Since it's an isolated environment, it should not happen.
    Did you manually edit your /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf after running "drblpush -i"? Otherwise the dhdpd.conf created by drblpush should work.
    Maybe you try to run "drblpush -i" again?
