    @najeebrehman df -h will show you all of the mounted devices. lsblk will also show you the mounted (connected) devices, just in a different layout. Look for a device that has the same size as your usb flash drive. Then follow tom’s commands below substituting the drive (/dev/sda, /dev/sdb, etc) that is identified as your usb device.



  • hey tom just send me some basic commands to figuring out wher is my usb , and i have images in \images folder
    Thanks

    @george1421 said in New to Fog:

    If you have someone that knows linux, they can create new fog server in under an hour from bare metal to a working fog server.

    and if you don’t have anyone that knows linux, you can probably still fumble your way through getting a new fog server up and running in a day

    The honest truth here is that you need to upgrade from fog 0.32 to at least fog 1.3.x series. That old kernel in 0.32 will not support anything that was created with nvme disks or newer network adapters.

    If you don’t know linux, you need to find someone in your area to help you set up a new fog server on a current release of linux if you want to support current workstation hardware. If you have someone that knows linux, they can create new fog server in under an hour from bare metal to a working fog server. Then you will just need to migrate your images and configuration to your new fog server.

    I’m not understanding. You would mount the USB drive to the VM of your FOG Server and access it similar to windows.

    Your basic commands would be to open a terminal and gain root. This can be done (opening terminal is your bet, but I suspect FOG is running on linux not Windows 7):

    sudo -i
    Enter your admin user’s password

    Mount the USB Drive, you’ll have to figure out what it’s labelled, I’m assuming it will be presented as /dev/sdb:

    mkdir /images_to_usb
    mount /dev/sdb1 /images_to_usb
    cp -rp /images /images_to_usb
    

    Your USB will need to have at least the used space of /images in order to perform the copy.
