FOG (RC12) Settings Exit Types (legacy, efi) will not be saved after change



  • Hi,

    i was just wondering why my change to the default exit types didn’t take effect, after searching for the error i found out that fog isn’t saving the changed settings:

    I would like to have refind for efi exit type but i cannot change it.

    More detail:

    I goto FOG Settings and try to change efi exit type away from exit to refind, i click on “update” and i get:

    Bild Text

    But anyway the option is still on the old value:

    The problem also exists with legacy exit type and i don’t know if that two values are the only ones, i more have the feeling that nothing will be saved.

    @Wayne-Workman @george1421 @tom-elliott
    May anyone of you has the hint to change the value anyway (sql)?

    EDIT: The problem affects every Setting changes, they will not be saved.

    Regards X23



  • @tom-elliott Hi Tom, sorry for the late answer, yes that sql statement solved my issue. Solved!

    UPDATE globalSettings
    SET settingCategory='FOG Boot Settings’
    WHERE settingKey
    IN (‘FOG_ADVANCED_MENU_LOGIN’,‘FOG_EFI_BOOT_EXIT_TYPE’,‘FOG_PXE_MENU_TIMEOUT’,‘FOG_PXE_MENU_HIDDEN’,‘FOG_PXE_ADVANCED’,‘FOG_KEY_SEQUENCE’,‘FOG_NO_MENU’,‘FOG_BOOT_EXIT_TYPE’,‘FOG_PXE_HIDDENMENU_TIMEOUT’,‘FOG_IPXE_MAIN_COLOURS’,‘FOG_IPXE_MAIN_CPAIRS’,‘FOG_IPXE_MAIN_FALLBACK_CPAIRS’,‘FOG_IPXE_VALID_HOST_COLOURS’,‘FOG_IPXE_INVALID_HOST_COLOURS’,‘FOG_IPXE_HOST_CPAIRS’,‘FOG_IPXE_BG_FILE’);

    @george1421 helped out with sorting the command ;)

    Please try this SQL statement:

    UPDATE `globalSettings` SET `settingCategory`='FOG Boot Settings' WHERE `settingKey` IN ('FOG_ADVANCED_MENU_LOGIN','FOG_EFI_BOOT_EXIT_TYPE','FOG_PXE_MENU_TIMEOUT','FOG_PXE_MENU_HIDDEN','FOG_PXE_ADVANCED','FOG_KEY_SEQUENCE','FOG_NO_MENU','FOG_BOOT_EXIT_TYPE','FOG_PXE_HIDDENMENU_TIMEOUT','FOG_IPXE_MAIN_COLOURS','FOG_IPXE_MAIN_CPAIRS','FOG_IPXE_MAIN_FALLBACK_CPAIRS','FOG_IPXE_VALID_HOST_COLOURS','FOG_IPXE_INVALID_HOST_COLOURS','FOG_IPXE_HOST_CPAIRS','FOG_IPXE_BG_FILE');
    

    This should reset all those items to use the proper setting category. The problem with the ajax and the place you’re currently updating is because those fields are appearing outside of the “<form>” element. So when you click update, nothing is actually being sent to be updated. This should address those issues.

    Do you have a “tab” called “FOG Boot Settings”? If so, can you try editing from there?

    Yes i have:

    we can do the remote in when ever you have time, gimme a ping.


  • Senior Developer

    I’ve moved this posting to fog problems as this is not something I can address with a patch or anything. It is quite literally a problem with the database.

    Can you confirm that you have the tab: FOG Boot Settings? If you do, does this same information appear there?

    I might need to remote in to take a look.


  • Senior Developer

    Basically it seems you have a corrected globalSettings table.


  • Senior Developer

    You’re modifying the wrong fields. Your “expand all” should not have anything directly editable underneath it.

    It should fall under FOG Boot Settings:

  • Hi,

    here is a video of the behaviour, have a look yourself:

  • @sebastian-roth i am using firefox, i also tried chrome now and it also does not save the options. i won’t try edge and ie is removed on my system for freedom :D


  • Developer

    @x23piracy Which browser do you use? Tried different ones yet?


  • Senior Developer

    @x23piracy I’m unable to replicate the issue using working, and dev-branch. It really seems somebody pressed enter from a text field. I’m not saying you aren’t having the problem, I just don’t have a way of seeing it.



  • @sebastian-roth well, i described why i think that is a bug, there is an update button that implies that it will save changes but it doesn’t, then i found out that i can change the desired values at another place where also is a update button, that update button will save the values.

    For me thats personally solved, for FOG from my opinion it’s a bug.

    Regards X23


  • Developer

    @x23piracy Two questions, one answer?! Yes solved or yes still an issue? ;-)




  • Senior Developer

    Is it okay to solve this, or is this still an issue?


  • Senior Developer

    @x23piracy I can’t replicate the problem you’re stating, maybe I’m not understanding the issue?

    I go to FOG Configuration->FOG Settings->FOG Boot Settings.

    Change the EFI and Legacy boot exit styles. Click the update button associated to the FOG Boot Settings tab. I then hard refreshed the browser to make sure the changes did/or didn’t apply. The settings stayed as I had set them.

    Yes you can change them from the iPXE General Configuration as well, they’re essentially the same thing.



  • Ok, this did the trick:

    Does it make sense that the settings only saved when i update them via iPXE General Configuration > Boot Exit settings while they also been offered by FOG Settings in first manner followed by an “Update” button?

    I did not drink, i did not smoke but what the hell am i just to stupid to know? :D
    Solved but with a lot of confusion.

  • @tom-elliott said in FOG (RC12) Settings Exit Types (legacy, efi) will not be saved after change:

    You need to press the expanded tabs update button. Hitting enter will not update the fields as it’s being passed through ajax.

    That one? What else should i do to save the settings? I click on that update button but it doesnt really save it.
