UNSOLVED New storage node not showing stats on dashboard
Just installed a fresh storage node on a new CentOS VM I spun up. The install went smoothly, but after adding it to the management interface it wouldn’t show the stats on the dashboard. If I click on it to open the details all the hardware stats show, but next to kernel it reads “A valid database connection could not be made”@@general. As far as I can tell everything is set correctly. What can I do to troubleshoot this?
@Shad0wguy Can you please take a screenshot of the message you see in the kernel page where is says “A valid database connection …”?
Please take a look at
/var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/config.class.phpto see if the database credentials are set correctly. You can try connection to the database on your main server from your storage node using the mysql command line client:
mysql -h x.x.x.x -u fogstorage -D fog -p
Put in the master server’s IP instead of x.x.x.x!
We have someone else reporting a similar issue when upgrading the storage node from 1.5.3 to 1.5.4. Possibly there is a bug/problem that we are not aware of yet. On the other hand I have done storage node installs and tests lately without running into such an issue.
