Good luck! We couldnt get Fog to deploy an image properly on either Ubuntu 12.04, or 11.04. Using Ubuntu 10.04 with Fog 32 gave no deployment issues… Now on to figuring out why multicast fails partway through, and with unicast works just fine… X(
Sorted this now, I used CloneZilla pxe to upload an image to each machine, once the initial image is deployed, fog will continue to image correctly.
So it looks like the problem is with the boot loader.
i figured out what was causing the macbooks to shut down. it turned out to be the install-restore.dmg files was only 1.6gb and when i remade the install-restore.dmg it came out 1.8gb i doubled check to make sure that was the correct size for that file for netRestore 3.4.6
now the mac finds the fog server but it just sits there with the apple logo and a spining circle.
i’m sure it has something to do with files:
the files above are different for each folder they go into below, even though there named the same.
netRestore make the files for ppc and i386 but not for netBootSp0.
so thats where i’m stuck.
i stop trying few days ago and now im back to try again…if i cant get it to work, i’ll try deploystudio.
i’ll keep you updated on anything the comes up.
Thanks for the response. Unfortunately when I decompress the image and go to /tmp/tmpMnt/lib/ there is no udev directory so there are no udev scripts. Maybe I’m missing something… maybe I’m supposed to create the udev scripts…?
Also, if I run a find in /tmp/tmpMnt/ and grep for udev or firmware nothing is returned.
Can you provide a little more direction if you know the answer?
I booted the system and I’m on the system now. If I find from the root I still don’t find udev but I DO find firmware. This is good.
I have done installs both ways. Fog install basically grabs the latest of each required package using apt-get. So as long as your mostly up to date and not running a conflicting package, it probably won’t matter. Fog install does grab more than just apache, mysql, and php.
[quote=“bardicverse, post: 4378, member: 1314”]dumb question - can you ping the fog server’s ip address from one of your client machines?[/quote]
Yep. No problem there. Can ping by ip address and hostname.
No question is a dumb question. I might have overlooked something small.
i found though that i need to do this step again after i completed the guide:
[COLOR=#d8d8d8][COLOR=#0000ff][B]mkdir[/B] /media/VirtualBoxGuestAdditions [B]mount[/B] -r /dev/cdrom /media/VirtualBoxGuestAdditions[/COLOR][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#d8d8d8][COLOR=#000000]Remember to do “yum install bzip2” because it would be needed. I my have forgot the name but when you try and install VG it will complain and give you the correct name… [/COLOR][/COLOR]
[COLOR=#d8d8d8][COLOR=#000000]Hope this helped… [/COLOR][/COLOR]
After testing that .29 worked, I upgraded to .32 and that also worked. In fact the image uploaded much faster after installing .32
Still none the wiser why .32 wont install correctly. I have checked the settings and to me they look the same but I am no Linux guru.
