@Dave-Wolf The article says minutes for a 100GB+ image - this isn’t a stone-cold figure. If your system is older, running on older hardware, is under higher load, has slower RAM/Processor/Bus speed - this figure will vary quite a bit I imagine. Even more if it’s using a SAN that is less than amazing.
And, what you’ve described is exactly what’s described by Sebastian. Credentials check out, seems like a timeout, using Ext3… I am not sure you’re not affected - I’m almost positive you are. Ext3 is the issue, it’s how it operates, there’s no configuration you can do to fix it besides moving to Ext4 or better.
And - several people here have used FreeNAS with Fog, there’s a wiki writeup about it in two different spots I think, I’ll see if I can find them.
When i image more then 6 computers at the same time, I got the chainloading problem.
Then your system can’t handle more than 6. I would suggest setting the max clients to 3 or 4.
Web Interface -> Storage Management -> [click correct node] -> Max Clients
You should also explore Multicast, it’ll make your life easier.
The ‘Create Snapin’ feature works in RC-8, you are probably either having load issues, or you have trash in your database, or a corrupt web directory. Easiest place to start is to delete the web directory and then re-install fog.
rm -rf /var/www/html/fog
Then reinstall RC-8.
I suppose, you may have a full root partition too… check with:
