@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.
@Wayne-Workman Thanks for the info. I did modify the .fogsettings file at first, but I was receiving errors for “invalid response” whenever I attempted to install. I just copied the .fogsettings from a working installation.
@George Upgrading from 8 to 10 is quite a step. Probably something we have not tested. Please take a look at the settings file in /opt/fog/.fogsettings - find the line starting with packages=… and remove that from the file (good idea to make a backup copy of the file before you do this). Then re-run the installer.
Thank you that solved the issue. I had to remove also from apache the php5.conf and php5.load and everything now is up and running.
@chunter2 You are free to ask pretty much anything here but don’t expect a full answer.
Though you are using FOG this has not much to do with it and I won’t find the time to step you through this. Maybe other user will.
What I was actually trying to say is that there are forums with users way more experienced on this particular topic than we are. So even if people wanna help I am sure there are other places you get more experienced eyes on your question to help you.
