Kernal update issue
cjesso last edited by cjesso
Hello! I am on day 5 of trying to setup a fog server for image deployment. I get errors at various different stages, but right now i am trying to resolve one related to a TFTP error. Type: 2, File: /var/www/fog/lib/fog/fogftp.class.php, Line: 463, Message: ftp_login(): Login incorrect., Host: 172.16.3.31, Username: fog when i try to update the kernal. I can’t seem to find a reason for this message. Any help would be great. There are more issues, but i figure i will try this one at a time. thanks! (I am brand new to Linux/FOG, so i apologize in advance for my lack of knowledge). Unbuntu 14.04 and FOG server 1.4.1
@cjesso Yes please.
@Tom-Elliott k so that worked. I’m not sure why it didnt work in the first place, as i didnt change any passwords. Shall i created a new thread for my other issue(s)?
@cjesso This is the password yoru linux fog user is set to. It’s not encrypted.
Copy and paste where needed.
I’m modding so your stuff is not exposed.

@Tom-Elliott yes… as for a password, it shows
mod hidden for safety. is this encrypted? and should i just change it there? is the default password?
.started files in linux are considered “hidden” yes.
What file did you download? The one from sourceforge? This has since been updated. Unfortunately github is currently having issues so I can’t update its file until later on.
@Tom-Elliott well i downloaded 1.4.2, but it tells me i don’t have the latest version. If i open file explorer and go to that location, there is no .fogsettings file. Are those files hidden?
@cjesso There’s no need to wipe and start fresh.
Ubuntu is fine. Fog 1.4.2 would be what I would recommend.
We can still fix the password change problem.
Open a terminal.
open the file
the password there is your TFTP and Storage Node Management Password.
This account is the
foguser from the Linux machine.
@Tom-Elliott haha sigh ok…i only changed it cause you said to make sure they matched. maybe i misunderstood.
I want to be able to deploy windows 10 images to multiple PCs. What version of Ubuntu should i use (version # and desktop or server) and what version of FOG should i use. I will wipe it all and start fresh
@cjesso But you said you did make changes. So now we have to fix those.
@Tom-Elliott I understand that…you are telling me passwords should match but not to change anything. I didnt change anything from the default settings, therefore i assume that i should be able to download the latest kernal update. if i don’t need to do that, then i will skip and move on to the next issue
Updating the Kernel will not update your version of FOG.
@Tom-Elliott i didn’t change anything after install the FOG server. I left it as default. Should i still have to change anything? I installed the fog server, and it said i didnt have the latest update, so i tried the kernal update. This is when i get the error message. maybe i don’t need to worry about the kernal update? There is so many convoluted walkthroughs on this, and none pertain to the newer versions, so there are settings that are not there, paths that don’t exist. What version of UBUNTU and FOG server do you recommend?
@cjesso why do you keep changing things?
The Password being changed there will not FIX anything.
Your TFTP Password should’ve matched what was set on the Storage Node, not the other way around.
@Tom-Elliott yes i looked there…the password looks to be about 100 characters long. I changed it so that is was the same as the TFTP username/password. Same error.
@cjesso This is NOT the GUI username and password. This user and password can typically be found under Storage Management->Relevant Storage Node->Management Username/Password.
@Tom-Elliott Type: 2, File: /var/www/fog/lib/fog/fogftp.class.php, Line: 463, Message: ftp_login(): Login incorrect., Host: 172.16.2.235, Username: fog
Did that…still says password is incorrect. I left the fog login as default…fog/password.
Please take a look at FOG Configuration Page->FOG Settings->TFTP Server->FOG_TFTP_FTP_USERNAME and FOG_TFTP_FTP_PASSWORD
This should match your fog server’s FOG User and Password (though I may be working eventually to make this more automated to all servers)
