It is not happening anymore. The VM is only 18GB. It takes less than 10 minutes to capture and less than 10 minutes to update FOG. Or visa versa.
The only weird thing I have since noticed is during the install process, when are asked to go to fog/management and hit update database, that page no longer shows up. It just displays the fog login screen. So I just go back to the installer and hit ENTER. It seems to work fine.
@JJ-Fullmer Thanks for the instructions; that worked!
Some notes on the situation for me:
Root password was set BUT only for ‘localhost’, but the host localhost did not have any type set (whereas the others had mysql_native_password)
I think that this may have also been the case for me. I certainly remember having set a root password but after fixing everything my only conclusion was that I must have not. But I did also notice that my mysql.user table had 3 different root users for localhost, 127.0.0.1, and 1 other I can’t remember right now. Mine were all set to the mysql_native_password plugin as well. It looks like a solution is in the works here already, but just wanted to add that note that the root problem might be the authentication problem.
@Tom-Elliott Thank you for all the assistance. I actually ended up testing dev versions 220.127.116.11, and 1.5.8 and I can confirm both indeed fix the issue. Both versions now start all the services correctly after several reboots. Thank you for all your assistance Tom and everyone!
@dforce New inits are build and you can simply re-run the installer to pull the new files. Tom also pushed some changes to dev-branch so you might want to do a git pull as well though it’s not needed. If you do so, don’t wonder about a decreased version number. Seems like we had that advanced a little too high at some point and Tom pulled it back now.
