Each flavor of Linux will have its own frustration. The important thing is, take it slow… Take it easy…
I am currently in a University environment where I literally have 3+ or so OSes to figure out a lot of times. Heck, I am working with Fedora and CentOS as the mainstay, but have others who are on Ubuntu. And mind you, CentOS 6 as well as CentOS 7 now, Fedora 20 and 22…
One of the major problems you will run into is just repositories, unfortunately, FOG will not always have the answers nor their wiki because it is still hard to cover it all and I also found that while the FOG Project guys try to make sure you have all the repositories, sometimes the stumbling block is that the machine you are on may not be ‘nice’ when trying to look at new repositories and you have to make sure you enable the ones they put in.
Another thing to note, that some Repositories may not be ‘ideal’. As CentOS is one of the OSes that tend to change not as much… Some of the expected repositories may not have the ‘latest’ or ‘stable’ builds that some people will be willing to vette. So again, take it slow and easy.
I upgraded to latest SVN version of FOG this morning (4547) during troubleshooting of another issue - pulling image from remote storage node with the location plugin. While that issue is now resolved I find that if I click on the Create New Image link it hangs on a blank page while trying to navigate to: http://fqdn_of_main_fog_server/fog/management/index.php?node=image&sub=add
I did try and add the LDAP plugin just beforehand which prevented me from logging in at all to the web GUI. I got around this by renaming the plugin directory
I have since upgraded to svn version 4551 to see if that would solve things but same issue occurs.
The LDAP plugin may not be the issue here. I can login to the GUI and then rename the ldap1 to ldap again so I can use the LDAP plugin and remove all entries there but the issue still happens. I’ve also disabled the plugin system completely in FOG Configuration > FOG settings > Plugin System but once again issue persists.
Is this perhaps a bug in latest svn version? Or is the fact I can’t delete plugins indicative of an issue within the plugins system which could be somehow impacting the create new image link in some way?
