I'll give you some background first...

I installed ubuntu with maas using the instructions on maas.ubuntu.com. I have 2 network adaptors, one on my lan, and another on which I plan on using maas to manage.

I installed using the first ethernet for my lan. (Installing entirely from disk had issues for me, but this seemed to work perfectly). Then after the install, I reboot, configured my second ethernet card, and configured MAAS to use that. I ran maas-import-pxe-files, which appeared to install successfully.

In the MAAS dashboard, I have a message:

No boot images have been imported yet. Either the maas-import-pxe-files script has not run yet, or it failed. Try running it manually. If it succeeds, this message will go away within 5 minutes.
I waited, I rebooted, I reran the import, no luck. Could someone point me in the right direction?

This may be unrelated, but I noticed my /etc/maas/import-pxe-files had precise, not quantal in it. I did try to change it to quantal, but then the import fails as the files do not exist on the server it is going to to get them.
