Latest Trunk build running on CentOS 7 - Snapin Create Fail
This is a new message that I’ve never seen. This is a brand new Fog install using latest Trunk (1.5.0-RC-10). I cannot create a simple snapin on this new server.
Okay so I finally figured out the issue. Whenever this error came up the storage didn’t show up on the main page. Once I was able to get the storage node figured out and the pie chart came up on the main page I was able to create a snapin just fine.
So I thought that was it because I did a fresh install on another PC and it worked. I assumed this meant that something was weird with the fog password. Fast forward to today. I installed FOG latest stable release 1.4.4 on CentOS 7 on a different server and without even touching anything else the first thing I tried was creating a snapin. It gave me the exact same error. Nothing has changed and this was the very first thing that I tried to do as soon as the installer told me that Fog was ready.
Yeah that was it. I changed the default fog user password. Thanks for the help.
While I’m not familiar with the snapin system, that error makes me think that someone edited / changed the fog service account (
fog's) password. Understand this is the linux user called
fognot the default webgui password of the same name. If you have happened to change the linux user
fogpassword there is a sequence you need to follow to reset it back to a known value. https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/11203/resyncing-fog-s-service-account-password
