Problems after updating fogserver IP Address
- FOG Version: 1.4.3
- OS: Ubuntu LTS 1.6.4
- Service Version:
- OS: Windows 7
After updating the IP Address of our fogserver, we can no longer load the disk usage graphs for our storaqe node. I have double checked that the fogsettings are updated on both machines to contain the new IP. I have also re-run the installfog script on both machines
Any ideas what I could be missing?
@thebrennan47 Case solved then?
@george1421 I ran it on the fog server after updating everything and that didn’t reset it. However I ran it on the storage node as well, and that does look to have helped
Thanks for the assistance with this!
After updating the .fogsettings file did you rerun the fog installer?
Re-iterating that. if the .fogsettings file is correct, rerunning the installer generally fixes any problems.

You have updated all of the places I know where to look, the bin/installfog.sh script should harmonize the settings again.
I found the following two config options on the fog configuration settings:
And then on the storage node I verified that it has the correct IP for itself also.
I also edited the fogsettings and default.ipxe files to verify they also have the correct IP.
(I also went through the steps here: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Change_FOG_Server_IP_Address )
I have also verified that they can successfully ping one another
I am still seeing the following issues though
In the Home Page UI
Nothing shows up in the drop down for storage node disk usage.
Also, when I click on the graph section it opens a hardware information page that gives out the following error: “Invalid Server Information!”
On the fog configuration / settings page:
FN1 FOG Version: ("A valid database connection could not be made"1.4.3)
Still digging around trying to figure out what I am missing here. Any ideas?
Also make sure you look under the storage node configuration for that fog server. There are 5 spots (3 in the gui) where the IP address is coded.
2 places in the fog settings
1 place in the fog storage node
From the linux console you will need to edit /tftpboot/default.ipxe
and edit /opt/fog/.fogsettings.
Once everything is in sync then I would run through the FOG setup utility again just to make sure everything has been harmonized. (./bin/installfog.sh). It is a bit of a PITA changing the fog server IP after the fact, but its possible.
