UNSOLVED Installation issue after upgrade 1.4.0RC9.3 to 1.4.0 Release

  • Server
    • FOG Version: 1.4.0 Release
    • OS: Ubuntu 16.04

    Upgraded my installation using the installfog script as I always have, but encountered an issue near the end of installation. Database migration and all setup tasks all went through without a hitch… the problem comes when trying to bring up services.
    “Configuring FOG System Services”
    “Setting permissions on FOGMulticastManager.service script…OK”
    “Enabling FOGMulticastManager.service Service…Failed!”

    Manually attempting to start this service after installation brings up an error saying the service changed on disk, and to perform a daemon-reload. After doing this task the service starts up without issue. Subsequent runs of the installer script fail in the exact same way. What could be going on here? Could there be an issue with my install, or is this a bug with the new release? Never encountered this before.

  • No updates of the system have been performed, and FOG is the only software in use on this system. I’ve had zero issues upgrading all along from 1.3 through various RC releases as they come out and onward to this final 1.4.0 release. This is the first time I’ve seen a failed message during an upgrade.

    Specifically the error log shows:
    “update-rc.d: error: cannot find a LSB script for FOGMulticastManager”

    I was able to bypass the issue by grabbing the init.d scripts out of the packages folder, and manually placing them into /etc/init.d following with a chmod +x. Once those scripts were copied into init.d the foginstaller script moved along nicely.

  • This is not a bug, as it would’ve been reported MANY more times than in the past. The reload shouldn’t be required. The question, then, would be did you upgrade Ubuntu from an earlier version to Ubuntu 16.04?
