    History :

       14  apt-get update
       15  cd /opt/
       16  git clone https://github.com/FOGProject/fogproject.git
       23  cd fogproject
       24  git pull
       25  git fetch --all
       26  git checkout working-1.6
       27  cd bin/
       28  ./installfog.sh 
       41  cd /etc/dhcp/
       42  nano dhcpd.conf
       59  nano /etc/network/interfaces

    @Jonathan-Cool If I’d be in your situation I’d probably go for setting up a new server with current stable version. But you are still in the situation that you’d need to move/copy all your settings and images from this server to the new one. Ex/import of hosts and images should work between those I’d say. But I have not tested this yet as I have not used working-1.6 much.

    Setting up a fresh 1.5.6 server in a VM and testing the ex/import shouldn’t cost more than an hour so I’d definitely give it a try.



  • Hi !

    What is the best option for me ?

    Maybe is to create a new fog installation (on new disk) with a stable version ?

    I really need the snapins feature quickly.

    Thank you for your answer :)

    @Jonathan-Cool Switching back and forth from working-1.6 to latest stable (1.5.6) or dev-branch is not a good idea. It needs manual correction of values in the DB and is not officially supported.

    @Tom-Elliott Can you confirm this being an issue in the latest working-1.6 version?



  • Hi,
    I tried to update to 1.5.6.700 version but not more success …
    i don’t want especially work in alpha version, just a version with snapins feature works … but i don’t want to lose my 16 hosts definition and my image definition.
    Maybe i can tried to go to stable branch ?

    @Jonathan-Cool You are aware of using a sort of alpha version known as “working-1.6”. You might want to run the following commands to update to the very latest version of this alpha stage.

    cd /opt/fogproject
    git pull
    git checkout working-1.6
    cd bin/
    ./installfog.sh
    

    @Tom-Elliott is working on this one. Can you confirm the issue?
