@Daniel-Miller Thank you, I’m learning both Cent and Fog at the same time, challenging but interesting, I couldnt find why I had 127Gb total storage but only 27Gb was being shown in Fog GUID so I ended up re-building the server. Appreciate the info though.
Setting this up is fairly advanced! You are better off just using a simple setup with just one FOG server (including it’s own storage) in a VirtualBox I’d say. Play with this and when you are ready take the next step.
@Base2Nathan Good to hear you figured it out. You might wonder why the config George suggested doesn’t use option tftp-server-... and option bootfile-name at all. There are two places in DHCP packets where PXE boot information can be placed. One is DHCP options as you have used them. But there is also next-server and filename what are fields within the DHCP header information. Take a closer look at the wireshark dump…
@marted Let us know if you need any further assistance. Please describe exactly when steps you take! Not just “delete the windows boot manager and keep only grub2” but give us all the details like commands and such! It seems you are preparing a very custom setup here and we need to know all the details to be able to help you.
@jmeyer There is no real check. At the moment we install mariadb on fresh installs but stick to mysql on upgrades (which is set in /opt/fog/.fogsettings) because Ubuntu does not properly migrate your database from mysql to mariadb yet (while Debian has long ago).
@Sebastian-Roth Thanks for the input,
I was able to figure out what was going wrong. when I was ssh-copy-d root@storagenode it was copying the sshkey i use to login to the server. I needed to use ssh-copy-id -i /root/.ssh/id_rsa and then your suggestio of rsync ... -avze "ssh -i /full/path/to/ssh_private_key" /images/Sync root@$i:/images/ ... worked great.
