Problems migrating FOG from 1.2
- FOG Version: 1.4.0-RC-9.2
- OS: Ubuntu 16.10
- Service Version:
- OS: Windows 7, 10
So we’re migrating our fog server to a new VM. Coming from Fog version 1.2, haven’t had any luck with exporting and importing the DB, so we went with a fresh install and I was moving the images manually. However, I’ve been running into issues with this as well. Followed the instructions listed here: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/6441/transfer-images-to-a-new-system however the images don’t restore. They do something, because the Windows install that was existing on the machine I went to restore to is no longer working. Exits with an error code 1, which, if I read the description right, means that the image is larger than the HDD, which isn’t the case.
Ok, so it looks like the default image engine was changed. Once we got the images added to the system and changed them from PartImage to Partclone Gzip they started deploying correctly.
Thank you Tom!
@ENorum THat’s a part of the migration itself.
The definition’s are not automatically populated. What this means is moving an image from one server to another without a definition already set just uses disk space.
Thank you for the response!
https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Migrate_FOG - So I did this, and ended up with a lot of problems, which is why we went the manual move of the images into a fresh, empty install.
https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Migrate_images_manually - I didn’t see this one, and forgive me as I’m really not familiar with linux, but this looks to just move the images to the new server? If so, we’ve done that. They’re just not showing up in the management screen.
Might I suggest you take a look here:
