Failed to deactivate node | Failed to perform rollback on Remove DHCP Settings



Hi all,

I’m having an issue with Foreman

Error: Failed to deactiate node in PuppetDB: 404 Resource Not Found and Failed to perform rollback on Remove DHCP Settings for - ERF12-6899 [ProxyAPI::ProxyException]: Unable to set DHCP entry ([RestClient::Conflict]: 409 Conflict) for proxy

What I was expecting to happen is to delete existing host ( but its not removed instead throwing above error

Here’s the debugging I’ve done so far restarted dhcp service as it has been mentioned as workaround for ERF12-6899

attached are the two logs foreman/production.log and foreman-proxy/proxy.log.

Under proxy.log continuously single error E, [2018-01-10T14:19:51.652553 ] ERROR -- : OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError: SSL_accept SYSCALL returned=5 /usr/share/ruby/openssl/ssl.rb:280:in 'accept' is being generated.

@Gwmngilfen Can you please help me with this problem…


If I knew, I’d have answered :wink:

One tip for you though, make it easy for people to help. I’m posting pretty much entirely from my phone at the moment, so I can’t download and untar your logs. Posting them to, or similar paste sites (or including them in your post, if they’re not too long) would mean others can view your logs with a click, instead of having to download.

Other than that, the only observation I can make is to figure out where that SSL error is coming from - so double check the proxy SSL config, certs are from the same CA as Foreman, etc


Thanks for your reply, Sorry I generally use pastebin but this time I forgot ! :sweat_smile:

Can you please suggest any Community lead who can help me with this ?

Thank you
Sai Krishna
