• I am setting up a FOG server running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and FOG 0.32. Never messed with either before so I am green as grass.

    Everything seems to be running fine, but when I try to upload an image to the server, it shows up in Active Tasks, but does nothing. Even if I Force Start, nothing happens.

    What have I missed?


  • Thank you. I will run through this and see what I can make happen.

    Boot to network/PXE boot the client. It should kick off the job.

    If you boot into PXE and get the FOG menu, then the task file did not get created properly and you may have a TFTP error.

    If you have a TFTP error (the task file is not created in /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/01-[mac-of-client]) then you can try restarting the tftpd-hpa service. Ubuntu 12.04 has some tftpd-hpa issues right now.

    If you don’t feel like dealing with any of this, then I suggest you revert to Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS as it pretty much works. Install Ubuntu, update, upgrade, install FOG, go to town.
