Location Plugin - ID Must Be Set To Edit Error

  • Server
    • FOG Version: 1.44
    • OS: Debian 9
    • Service Version: N/A
    • OS: N/A

    I have a clean install of Fog server and currently road testing it with a view to rolling out globally in our organisation. The plan is to have a single Fog management server with multiple storage servers dotted around the planet. As I understand it, the Location plugin is crucial to minimising bandwidth, however when I try to create a new location I get the message ‘ID must be set to edit’ and the location is not created.
    I have found a similar post relating to the LDAP plugin but those troubleshooting steps seem specific to LDAP.
    There are no errors posted in the Apache2 log.
    Is this a wider problem related to all plugins or am I doing something wrong?

    thanks for any suggestions.

    Here is the process to apply the patch:

    1. Open a linux command prompt on your FOG server.
    2. Key in the following command:
      sudo wget -O /var/www/fog/lib/fog/plugin.class.php https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FOGProject/fogproject/6717f382177e714c1bd22eb11627133cfd4e0ebe/packages/web/lib/fog/plugin.class.php
    3. Remove the plugin
    4. Reinstall the plugin
    5. Add in your plugin settings and save
