FOG image deploy is failing due to looking in wrong folder?

    About 2 weeks ago, due to an image uploading problem (bad sectors on hdd) we built up a new server with the above version. (thanks Tom Elliott) We discovered after the first upload that the image was uploading to a /images/dev folder for some reason. FOG configuration page shows only the /images folder, but when trying to deploy an image FOG fails with trying to find the image in the /images/dev folder. Why is this? I can’t find the offending issue. Help please?##### Server

    As recommended, I did upgrade to RC-9, and yes the issue has been resolved. Thanks all! Please mark this as solved!

    So has this been reported in the bugs section? Can’t find it there. Is anyone able to replicate the issue?!

    @Jim-Holcomb Please update to RC9 and see if this fixed the issue for you.

    @jim-holcomb said in FOG image deploy is failing due to looking in wrong folder?:

    my “active tasks” screen only blinks the active task,

    I would post that to the bugs forum so the developers can take a look at that issue once they return from their extended holiday. That sounds like a bug in the new web gui to me. If you post it there with any useful screen shots for the devs to review. That would be helpful.



  • Yeah Tom dropped by for a quick second or two (I am thankful) not sure if it is a bug, but the image would not deploy via tasks at all. At Tom’s request, I tried debug deploy and it still would not fire off. However for some silly reason it worked perfectly when I launched from the FOG splash screen.

    So I guess we can mark this as solved? One other quick item though, my “active tasks” screen only blinks the active task, then auto-hides the actual task for some reason. Any idea why?

    @jim-holcomb Did you have some kind of back channel communication with Tom. He should be on an extended holiday and not lurking around the forums. :-)

    In the case of your initial question. FOG uploads images to the /images/dev/<mac_address> directory that is by design. Then FOG will move the image to /images/<image_name> once the upload is complete.

    If the images are getting stuck in /images/dev/<mac_address> that typically means you have an issue with the fog linux user user account.



  • Looks like Tom pointed me in the right direction.
