@brakcounty said in Updating FOG and retaining settings:
so i went ahead and ran the update and broke mysql and mariadb beyond repair. apt update --fix-broken wasnt working. so i backed up my images, and reinstalled ubuntu server and fog 1.5.5 fresh. i luckily had a .sql backup file i exported two days ago and was able to import it via web ui successfully. i also mounted my RAID array to “/images” and its working fine. i will hold off on updating FOG to 1.5.7. Thanks for the input!
Sorry to hear you went through this. I thought my warning a day ago was clear enough but obviously it wasn’t.
There was no need to re-install Ubuntu as the database was still existing in a different directory (/var/lib/mysql-5.7). I suppose it’s all gone now. On the other hand it’s good to know that you got things up and running again using the sql backup file. But it would have saved you a lot of work and trouble if you’d waited for my instructions.
It’s fairly easy to upgrade to 1.5.7 and not break things but I needed to do a test on my end to make sure this is really working as I think it is before I would tell you. When you start the 1.5.7 installer you get to a point where it asks this question:
*** Detected a potential need to reinstall apache and php files.
*** This will remove the /etc/php* and /etc/apache2* directories
*** and remove/purge the apache and php files from this system.
*** If you're okay with this please type Y, anything else will
*** continue the installation, but may mean you will need to
*** remove the files later and make proper changes as
*** necessary. (Y/N):
If you upgrade from 1.5.5 or 1.5.6 you are save to say No (n) here! In this case you upgrade to 1.5.7 without running into the database issue!
@ians What I was referring to are the two different version numbers of FOG you posted!! Now that I read it again I see that I might have overlooked the + sign. So you meant “using plain text password because I run FOG newer than 1.3.0” right?
Well, that’s definitely correct to use plain text on FOG 1.5.7.
Still the error message is pretty clear. Please search the forums. There are numerous topics on the “unknown username or bad password, code = 1326” error and I think most cases were solved by correcting the credentials.
There was one user stating that special characters in the password cause an issue but I wasn’t able to reproduce the issue myself: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/12407/active-direcory-join-fail-bad-password-1-5-4
And here is another one who had issues with a sysprepped installation: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/9256/computers-not-joining-our-domain-during-sysprep
Read through this and double check the credentials in the places mentioned by Wayne in this topic!!

@fry_p lightspeed…I eventually figured it out thank you though
I use lightspeed too! Relay and the rocket filters. Still getting the hang of them tbh. Glad you got it
