Multiple Partition Image - All disks > with Intel RAID



  • Hi,

    I have the following setup. Thought it would be easy for everyone to understand with the below diagram than explaining in long sentences. FOG manages only OS1 (which is on the SSD) and OS2 is isolated in a separate network and managed with different tools (which cannot provide any multi disk imaging facilities.)

    0_1530033021155_FOG setup.jpg

    The SSD mounts as dev/sdc and the raid0 device /dev/md126 is created using /dev/sda and /dev/sdb (pulled these information from debug mode).

    I want to capture both of these OSs and image workstations with exact same configuration. I’ve tired the following and none of them are able to capture both OSs.

    1. primary disk set to /dev/md126
      a. ‘Multiple Partition Image - All disks’ - > fail with the error message | could not find any disks (/bin/fog.upload)
      b. ‘Multiple Partition Image - Single disk’ -> Capture successful. Tested deploying directly on to /dev/md126 on another workstation successfully.
    2. Primary disk set to /dev/sdc
      a. ‘Multiple Partition Image - All disks’ fail with the error message | could not find any disks (/bin/fog.upload)
      b. ‘Multiple Partition Image - Single disk’ - > did not try this option
    3. Primary disk left blank
      a. ‘Multiple Partition Image - All disks’ capture only /dev/sdc
      b. ‘Multiple Partition Image - Single disk’ - > did not try this option

    I can capture from raid0 without any problem if I do a ‘Multi Partition - Single disk’ capture. Fog doesn’t like when we set a primary disk in ‘Multiple Partition Image - All disks’ - >capture fails with the error, could not find any disks (/bin/fog.upload). I’ve captured (and deployed) an all disk capture with a VM (with multiple OSs in them) with no raid configuration successfully.

    As I understand all disk capture mode doesn’t see or ignores the md126 device. However, I can see the mdadm container loading and starting messages ( assembled with 2 drives) disks before the actual capture starts.

    Can you please shed some light on this matter? How can I resolve this issue without capturing and deploying the two OSs separately?

    FOG is up to date running version : 1.5.4

    Thank you in advance



  • I tired options ‘Windows 10’ as well as ‘other’. None of them worked. I even tired DD method for cloning it showed the same errors.

    I might could understand why this is happening, but I’m also surprised that its not detecting /dev/sda and /dev/sdb too. Because they are technically disks in the system.

    As a question, what do you have the OS for this image defined as?

    It would be interesting if the developers would add a feature to all disks where you could define what disks “all” really meant. Such as enumerating the primary disk field…??
