Jessie problems / resets ...

I have problems to get a working Jessie Fai setup, under Wheezy.

First, I get nfs.timeout from Dracut and I found:

I have the very same setup: the dhcp server is different from the Fai install server.

Than I configured the PXE config to the „old" style:

label Debian Jessie Install
kernel debian-amd64/vmlinuz-3.16.0-4-amd64
append initrd=debian-amd64/initrd.img-3.16.0-4-amd64 ip=dhcp  root=/dev/nfs rootfstype=nfs3 nfsroot=  FAI_FLAGS=verbose,sshd,createvt FAI_CONFIG_SRC=nfs:// FAI_ACTION=install SERVER=  rd.debug=1 panic=10

now, Dracut is able to mount the NFS share, but the very last line I see is „starting permit user sessions“ ( I had to capture a video to see it)  and the client reboots/resets and I have a loop.

Fai server is Wheezy, Fai client is Jessie.

ii  fai-client                          4.3.2+wheezy1                    all          Fully Automatic Installation client package

ii  fai-server                          4.3.2+wheezy1                    all          Fully Automatic Installation server package
ii  fail2ban                            0.8.6-3wheezy3                   all          ban hosts that cause multiple authentication errors

Any suggestions?
