SWAP partition not recognized after imaging



  • Hi,

    I’m using fog to image in almost a hundred machines and everything is really working fine until I found that the swap partition isn’t recognized just on the imaged machines.

    The df -l lists me the swap partition but the free command shows me zero bytes for swap. I think it’s probably a fstab issue with the uuid of the swap partition, but I couldn’t find the solution.

    A workaround for this and what I intend to do is to create a file and use it as swap partition, the steps are:

    [LEFT] [/LEFT]
    [SIZE=15px][COLOR=#222222][FONT=Courier 10 Pitch][B]# dd if=/dev/zero of=/swap01 bs=1024 count=1024000[/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

    [COLOR=#222222][SIZE=15px][FONT=Courier 10 Pitch][B]# chmod 600 /swap01[/B][/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#222222][SIZE=15px][FONT=Courier 10 Pitch][B]# mkswap /swap01[/B][/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#222222][SIZE=15px][FONT=Courier 10 Pitch][B]# swapon /swap01[/B][/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#222222][SIZE=15px][FONT=Courier 10 Pitch][B]# gedit /etc/fstab [/B][/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
    adding in the fstab file (/swap01 swap swap defaults 0 0)

    I appreciate if anyone knows a solution to activate the swap file without this workaround.

    thanks

    Troy

    Hi Hunter,

    The swap partition still there on a primary partition but is not activated because of the UUID on fstab. There is a way to activate it but do this on several machines will become unproductive, so the steps that I’ve mentioned I think are the best way to make the swap working.

    What exactly you need to know about linux deploying?
