When i bypass the missing filepath parameter problem, and execute the command

vcactl boot vca_persistent_centos7.2_1.3.48.img, And next vcactl wait , wait the vca status to net_device_ready

But it report Error: 

Card: 0 Cpu: 0 STATE: nfs_mount_error
Card: 0 Cpu: 1 STATE: nfs_mount_error

Do your boot up and configure your NFS directory on host machine correctly?

Hi, Please follow steps below:

1. Go to 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25590/Intel-Visual-Compute-Accelerator-BIOS-Update?product...

to download bios image, then run vcactl update-BIOS <biosImageFile>

2. Go to 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26386/Intel-Visual-Compute-Accelerator-EEPROM-Update?produ...

to download eeprom file, then run vcactl update-EEPROM <eepromImageFile>

3. Run yum install nfs-utils to install nfs tools for nfs_mount_error

Thank you for your answer

I download the bios image, eeprom file and already update succes. than i follow the step

 vca_persistent_<version>.img

    i. This image also requires vca_rootfs_<version>-tree.tar.gz
    ii. This image boots a minimal image and all other folders are mounted back to an NFS share on the host. The name of the folders and share must be exactly as described. See section on "Setting up host for persistent file image" before performing the next step.
    iii. The image contains reference kernel (including MSS patches) and contains the latest1 publicly released MSS Community Edition (without media samples package)
    iv. The image is tested by validation team in limited way (basic scenarios only)

than I see section on "Setting up host for persistent file image"  , and there also tips To set-up CentOS 7 NFS server, see section on setting up NFS under CentOS Tips and Tricks

So I see section on 15.5 Creating NFS Share , And i have found there need ssh which recommend in section

15.2 SSH Password-less configuration , Executed in sequence Section 15.2->15.3->15.5->9-> vcactl boot vca_persistent_centos7.2_1.3.48.img  , but also report Error: 

Card: 0 Cpu: 0 STATE: nfs_mount_error
Card: 0 Cpu: 1 STATE: nfs_mount_error
Card: 0 Cpu: 2 STATE: nfs_mount_error

There are two questions in the process

1.when i execute 15.2, the document script the vca ip is 172.31.${i}.1 , but it failed, use "ip a" command found ,the vca ip is 172.31.${i}.254

2.Is the section 15.4 Creating a local YUM Repository necessary?
 

look forward to your answer
