I installed Ubuntu 12.04 MAAS and tried to run sudo maas-import-pxe-files command as directed in the documentation, but I get the following:

sudo: maas-import-pxe-files: command not found

How can I run (sudo maas-import-pxe-files)?

I'm connected to the INTERNET and I'm the admin of the machine.

I had the same exact problem on 12.04. What fixes it is upgrading to 12.10. The documentation on MAAS is outdated and I found out the hard way after several hours of research. Hope that works for you!

maas-import-isos is used for a different purpose I believe, but still needed to do a slave install.

I think in 12.04 the command you need is sudo maas-import-isos maas-import-pxe-files is 12.10 I think.

I followed this tutorial for my 12.04 MAAS setup and it worked me
