Cant create new location

    Hi All,
    I am very new to FOG and was wanting to add locations so that I can use location based image selection and deployment. The problem I am having is that when I try to add a new location I get told “ID must be set to edit”.
    Any help on how to get around this would be great.
    Thanks All.

    @coxm There is a bug in 1.4.4 that needs to be patched with a hot fix.

    Here is the process to get and 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
    3. Remove the location plugin (make sure to document your current location settings)
    4. Reinstall the plugin
    5. Add in your plugin settings and save

    I would recommend that you follow the process until you get to step 3. You may not need to remove and reinstall the plugin. This will keep you from potentially loosing your current settings if the plugin was already installed when you upgraded to 1.4.4. This patch has been integrated into the next release of fog, which is still in development stage right now.
