Images on remote server
I do not know if this question has already been asked. But I could not find it. We currently have a server running and it does not have such a large hard drive. Would it be possible to forward the images through webdav?
@Daan To use FOG within a proxmox OpenVZ container you need to make sure NFS is loaded an enabled on the host system first:
# lsmod | grep nfsd nfsd 312315 14 # grep nfsd /proc/filesystems nodev nfsd
Now enable NFS for the container as well (
$CONTAINER_IDis just a variable, put in the real ID of your container):
# vzctl stop $CONTAINER_ID # vzctl set $CONTAINER_ID --feature nfsd:on --save # vzctl start $CONTAINER_ID
As well make sure to set the network up as bridge (veth instead of venet) so wake on lan and multicast will work properly.
@Sebastian-Roth Is there some tutorial for?
@Daan Yes it is possible. I have done it at my last working place. BUT it need some playing with the settings to get FOG’s NFS shares to work!!!
Thank you for the reply. Is it possible to run FOG on proxmox?
@Daan Can you possibly just add another hard drive to the server? You could move all your images to that new bigger drive and mount that as
/imagesso FOG won’t even notice.
If you really wanna use network shard disk space I’d suggest doing it the proper way and use iSCSI.
No webdav is not supported. You can either add an additional hard drive to the fog server, or setup a new fog server as a storage node. Unfortunately under normal conditions NAS devices are no longer supported by FOG.
You can use a NAS as long as it is the only device to store captured images (i.e. fog storage nodes can’t be used in the future) plus its not a supported configuration by the developers. That doesn’t mean it won’t work, it just not a configuration the developers are willing to support.
