/images/vol1 (which points to a directory on /dev/sda1) images correctly.
/images/vol1 --> /dev/sdb1 errors out
From FOS with the mount point in place if I stop the script where it errors out. I can move to /images/vol1 no problem. I can’t touch a file in /images/vol1 because /images on the fog server is shared out read only. There must be some conditional check that is failing above where it works when /images/vol1 is a directory and failing when /images/vol1 is a mountpoint. I’m just not seeing it.
If you can SSH to your NAS then go ahead and try (after backing up of course)! Quite a few NAS do support an awful lot of things; looking at my own synology, that has a dashboard where you can install web servers, MySQL, bulletin boards - all sorts really so it isn’t too much of a stretch to imagine FOG can be installed on the NAS. It all comes down to what flavour of Linux the NAS is running and how friendly it is to repo’s vs recompiling…
You can safely delete that directory and intialize git in /root where it will create the folders as needed. These are only the installation folders (as in everything needed to install FOG, not where everything is installed), they don’t contain any settings or the like.
If you upgraded your main fog server to 1.4.0RCx without issue then your storage nodes will update without issue. The storage nodes use a subset of the features of the master node. In that they do not have a local database (mysql and ftp) seem to cause us the most issues during the upgrade.
With that said, expect issues (we are here to help). When it works successfully be happy and move onto the next issue.
I added a Cisco switch in the mix, but I couldn’t get it to pass any traffic, even from the switch itself. I don’t know if adding a layer 3 switch into the mix confused everything?
Anyway, I’ll wait until we get new equipment and then debug it from there, like you suggested. We’re going to be reimaging multiple machines at a time before we get new network equipment anyway, so I most likely need to get a RAID 10 set up.
Once we get new equipment in, I’ll give the Multicast a shot and then reply back to this thread. But, that’s way in the future. Probably several months or more.
I appreciate all the help you guys have put in to this! Thanks a bunch!
