SOLVED Advanced wake-up task for a group is queued but not performed

    Advanced wake-up task for a group is queued but not performed.

    Wake-up tasks (Basic Tasks -> Advanced) for a single host are performed correctly (and afterwards the already queued task for the same host as a member of a group is even removed from the queue list).

    Immediately performed Wake On Lan Power Management tasks are performed correcty too.

  • @Tom-Elliott you are right! That was the problem. I do not know why i have two instances - i will clear and fix it tomorrow! Thank you Tom!

  • @FritzBox360 You have two installations that are “separate” but functionally working from one location.

    Mind running:

    mv /var/www/fog /var/www/fog_old
    ln -s /var/www/html/fog /var/www/fog

    So that this type of problem doesn’t happen again?

  • @Tom-Elliott now it works 🙂 not sure were the problem was … Thanks a lot!

  • @FritzBox360 then can you change the -O portion to state:

    wget -O /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/group.class.php

    Also, please make sure there’s isn’t any erroneous spaces.

  • @Tom-Elliott, I cowardly run

    cp /var/www/fog/lib/fog/group.class.php /var/www/fog/lib/fog/group.class.php-bak

    I empty the MySQL task table in PHPMyAdmin and then run the command you requested:

    wget -O /var/www/fog/lib/fog/group.class.php

    No more error on group WOL. Thanks again

  • @Tom-Elliott yes, i run your command with an empty task table but nothing changed

  • @FritzBox360 Did you run the command I requested, or just re-tried?

  • @Tom-Elliott Thanks a million, it worked ! (I just empty task table before applying.)

  • @Tom-Elliott yes, there are no active task. If i start a advanced wakeup for a group this task is hanging under the active tasks. I need to remove it manually.

  • @FritzBox360 Did you cancel the pre-existing task first and then try? I tested and saw the problem. The fix fixes the issue where it’s creating a tasking in the first place, it does not clear the task for you though.

  • @Tom-Elliott

    same problem - nothing changed! Is a restart of the machine or a service necessary?

    The task is till hanging in the active tasks tab but the client is startet via WOL.

    If you need further information just let me know 😉

    Thank you!

    If i start a task via the PowerManagement everything is fine. Just over the Basic Task - Advanced way i run into the problem.

  • Can you guys try this file:

    wget -O /var/www/fog/lib/fog/group.class.php

    With anyluck, WOL won’t create a tasking like normal tasks.

    This issue came from a prior fix to enable other non-init taskings that still needed to be queued in a similar init needed fashion. Sorry for the oversight.

  • hi
    Same problem here on Debian 8.7 and Fog version 1.4.30_1498466347619_VV3.jpg

  • Same problem here on Ubuntu 4.4.0-67-generic 88~14.04.1-Ubuntu

    If i start a wakeup task for a group, all clients starting up but trying to boot into a fog task. In the active tasks selection there is still a wakeup task “hanging” there.

    The clients get an error and reboot. If i delete the “hanging” task everything is okay and fog boots the disk.


    The strange thing is, that on friday was everything fine …

    Hi everyone,
    We have the same issue here on Debian 8.8 for group wake up.
    Tasks stay in “1” state and hosts start a deployment task that fail then reboot.

    Timezone and clock are ok. (/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini /etc/php5/cli/php.ini and gui: fog_tz_info)

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Timezone the same in fog settings as in php.ini, ntp running.

    I do not schedule the wake-up event, direct execution.

    Can you ensure that the timezone listed in the FOG settings is correct, as well as the timezone listed in the /etc/php.ini config file? Lastly ensure the linux clock on the FOG server is accurate.
