upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS



  • I am running Fog 1.5.4. I upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS. I now get Unable to connect - Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at xxx.xxx.xx.xx. (the server ip is the correct ip)

    I tried re-installing Fog as that usually takes care of the connection issue. The installer fails on sysv-rc-conf. I tried taking that sysv-rc-conf out of the config file and re–installing, but received same error.

    I can do a new install of ubuntu and fog, but wanted to make sure I exhausted options first.

    @Wayne-Workman Great link Wayne, I am actually going to do this myself very soon, one point of clarification if I may: section “Arranging Images”. Is it really necessary to copy the images to a folder, other than /images on the new fog server and then once they are copied there “rearrange” them by moving them again into the final destination of /images (assuming fog defaults)?

    Imagine scenario A: You are busy capturing a new version of your image and someone attempts to deploy that image. They will get an incomplete and broken image and the install has failed.

    Imagine scenario B: You are busy capturing a new version of your image but something goes wrong! The image is now in an incomplete/broken state and you have no way of knowing for how long that will be the case! Not very practical.

    So yeah, there are legitimate reasons for using a ‘temporary directory’ if you will.

    Yes, because FOG’s NFS configuration does not allow writing to /images, it’s a read-only share. /images/dev is read+write. I kept the walkthrough as simple as possible, leveraging things already setup on the servers. If you wanted to use something like SCP, you could put the images directly where they need to go.

    Is there a problem by simply mounting /images at the old fog server and then copying the image files straight to their final destination on the new fog sever (which would be /images by default)?

    Thanks

    Please post full install error_logs here so we can have a look. Usually sysv-rc-conf is mentioned in the logs but is not the show stopper. Usually something else is.
