UNSOLVED Fog 1.4.2 Unable to locate Image Store (/bin/fog.download)
- FOG Version: 1.4.0 & 1.4.2
- OS: Ubuntu 16.04
- Service Version:
- OS: Windows 7 Ent 64bit
I recently installed a new server at one of our sites and have run into a problem after trying to deploy our image from the new server. When choosing a host and selecting deploy after reaching the PXE screen it displays the error “Unable to locate image store (/bin/fog.download)” The process I use is I create a “Master” image on a VM at my main office then using a flash drive to copy the image to all of our fog servers at our remote sites. I know the image is good because it worked at both my office and another site running Fog 1.4.0.
I have done this process for a few years now so I am unclear as to what is causing the problem. As stated, one server that the image DID work on is running Fog 1.4.0 but the server giving me issues I have tried using Fog 1.3.5, 1.4.0 and 1.4.2. All rights to the “/images/” directory are set to 777 and ownership is fog:root of the image. I have looked through the Forums but I was unable to find anything that has helped so far. Any assistance would be welcome!
@FlareImp It looks like the TVNE-Fog server didn’t have the whole image. The pic on the left is larger (at least the d1p2.img is) than the one on the right.
Okay, still have no idea what caused the issue but I deleted the image on the server under the GUI and recreated it. Now my server is deploying the image just fine. Any ideas as to why? I did not change anything so I am at a loss.
@Tom-Elliott here is what I see after comparing the two. The left is the nonworking server and the right is the one it works on. The only thing I noticed is the size difference. Which is do to the fact that I tried recreating the “Master” image.
@FlareImp and they both contain the same files?
ls -lhart /images/Win7MasterNoIEV3will help, compare from both points – working and non-working)
@Tom-Elliott I compared it to the directory on the fog server that the image works on and everything matches up. I even tried copying the image from the remote site that the image is working at rather than my office where I build the images and it does the same thing.
Yes, the name of the image is “Win7MasterNoIEV3” under “Image Name” and Image Path" under the image management GUI and under the image directory. I just copied pasted the name once the image directory was copied over. I have even tried hand typing it out and all upper and lower case matches perfectly.
Does the /images/<imagename> directory exist as expected from the database -> imagePath setting?
