Deployment stuck in a loop, never finishes imaging?


  • Senior Developer

    @salted_cashews IN the d1.fixed_size_partitions, can you add :3 to the file? And see if that helps at all?

    I’m grasping at straws and just guessing at what may be the issue. I don’t know what is the issue right now, of course, so I don’t expect any miracles here. But just testing a theory.



  • @Tom-Elliott
    No problem, here’s the output:

    drwxrwxrwx 40 fog           root          4.0K May 13 13:32 ..
    
    

    This certainly is a weird occurrence, I’ve captured and deployed a few images since then so I know nothing has been permanently botched. I know getting that fsck error usually means a corrupt file system correct?

    @salted_cashews The - ultimately shouldn’t matter in the context of the imaging process.

    We pipe the image into a FIFO (First In First Out) file called /tmp/pigz, then we perform the decompression and write to disk from that filename. So no, it shouldn’t matter how the image is named. In particular, howeve,r is the fact that the image keeps saying no such file or directory called d1p3.img*. The * is in the case of “split” file formatting. (d1p3.img.001, d1p3.img.002, etc…) but should work regardless of the file as long as the file exists.

    Looking through the thread, it appears each time asking for information that the file name’s are varying. I’m sure you have the files though, exact comparisons would be great.

    In the case of the image named PPS_v9.0R2_dev_CentOS, You have d1p1.img and d1p2.img. So why is it failing on d1p3.img?

    The scripting uses the same formatting for each image file. So when it comes to partition 1 it’s running the arg passed as /image/PPS_v9.0R2_dev_CentOS/d1p1.img* as well as d1p2.img* for partition 2. So it’s really confusing to me that it keeps failing on that same file.

    Can you get us files inside of /images/PPS_v9.0R2_dev_CentOS/?

    ls -lhart /images/PPS_v9.0R2_dev_CentOS/
    

    I’m sure this is redundant and all, but just trying to get the full scope.



  • @Tom-Elliott
    Here’s the result after renaming using a “_”. We have other images using “-” and “.”, would this be best practice to avoid even if they still work fine (haven’t had this issue until now)?

  • @Tom-Elliott Renamed, giving it another shot.


  • Senior Developer

    @salted_cashews I think so, yes. Rename the image to something without a - maybe?



  • @Tom-Elliott Interesting catch, would just renaming and re-associating via the Web GUI work to fix this?


  • Senior Developer

    @salted_cashews and @Sebastian-Roth

    I believe the problem is coming from the second -d

    Particularly in the naming of the image, it appears to be doing:

    zstdmt -d /images/PPS_v9.0R2 Then get’s a second -d from the -dev_CentOS/d1p1.image

    So it’s literally, I think, doing:

    zstdmt -d ev_CentOS/d1p1.img

    Does this make sense?

    I think the - in the image name is causing issues parsing into the zstdmt command. The reason it doesn’t impact the Ciara_CentOS-BASEmk3 is because, likely, there is no argument for -B is it just uses it like a normal string.

    Maybe we need to add some quoting to the scripting?



  • @Sebastian-Roth

    zstdmt -d /images/Ciara_CentOS-BASEmk3/d1p1.img -o /images/Ciara_CentOS-BASEmk3/d1p1_extracted.dat
    /images/Ciara_CentOS-BASEmk3/d1p1.img: 241217197 bytes
    

    No error this time, the error I received running it manually is the same error that displays during the task as well (on the partclone progress screen).

    @salted_cashews Make sure you have enough space on your disk: df -h

    Now as a test, please do the same with another image file:

    zstdmt -d /images/PPS_v9.0R2-dev_CentOS/d1p1.img -o /images/PPS_v9.0R2-dev_CentOS/d1p1_extracted.dat
    

    From my point of view the manual extraction test should give you an error if the image file is fine.



  • @Sebastian-Roth

    -dev_CentOS/d1p3.img : 4201 MB...     -dev_CentOS/d1p3.img : Read error (39) : premature end
    

  • Developer

    @salted_cashews Possibly this version of file does not detect Zstd compressed files. Please try to manually extract the image to see if that works properly:

    zstdmt -d /images/PPS_v9.0R2-dev_CentOS/d1p3.img -o /images/PPS_v9.0R2-dev_CentOS/d1p3_extracted.dat
    

    See if that triggers an error or not.

    Hint: You might need to install package zsdt on your FOG server.

  • @Sebastian-Roth Thank you sir, as far as the logs are concerned this is what they report:

    Following this I get a bunch of errors about “inode” something or other, and then the eventual reboot.


  • Developer

    @salted_cashews Take a look at Tom’s post here: https://forums.fogproject.org/post/88286

    Though I have not tested this myself lately it should still work I reckon.



  • @Sebastian-Roth To my dismay the host was just “nuked” this morning. On the bright side I’m testing another deploy debug and I’m SSHd into the guy. Is it possible to have the root password set via passwd by default on a deploy/capture? I’d love to just be able to jump in like this at-will.

    Let me see if I can trace back exactly what we did.

    Maybe .bash_history…?
