Regarding the pxe boot - I can see the incoming dhcp discover to port 67, and there is no response from the pxe server (MAAS server).So no IP, and no pxe boot is successful.
Regarding BMC - I can ping the iLO address from the MAAS server.
contents of /var/log/maas in: .

Please let me know if there is any other info I can give.
Thanks for your help,Yinon

 Hi Yinon,
Thanks for raising your issue. I would need a bit more information before I'm able to help you. Please see comments inline:

I set up a MAAS server. I setup dhcp on untagged interface X.I pxe boot my 3 nodes, and I see dhcp requests arriving on untagged X on the MAAS server, un-replied.Auto discovery doesn't work.

Could you please explain what issues are you really seeing with auto-discovery ?
1. Does the firmware get an IP address from MAAS? 2. Does the machine fail to PXE boot altogether because of 1 or because it cannot reach the TFTP server?3. Does the machine PXE boot successfully, but is unable to load a kernel/initrd?4. Does the machine PXE boot successfully, but the ephemeral environment fails somehow ? 
When I try to manually add the node, I get:"(maas-admin) - No rack controllers can access the BMC of node: dl-360-144"

 This means that a MAAS Rack Controller cannot reach the IP address of the BMC of the machine. Can the rack controller route to the BMC of the machine above ?

all my nodes are HPE DL-360.
If you think this is a bug, I am happy to report it in launchpad. If not, any help will be appreciated.

If you could attach some logs that would allow us to determine what the problem is, it would be ideal. If it works best for you, you could file a bug and attach those there.
