FOG 1.6, identified problems


  • Senior Developer

    I guess what i’m trying to establish in this thread:

    I cannot replicate the error you’re seeing. And from what I can tell this is an error that’s been custom made.

    The thread starts: FOG 1.6 Identified Problems.

    Nothing, so far, besides the advanced menu issue which was addressed, and added the Client link within the menu system, has been a problem specific to FOG 1.6

    I don’t know how to help any further with this as the 2 things requested that were not due to custom modifications to the iPXE menu have been addressed.

    Were these the only 2 things identified and solved? If so, can you branch out your specific problems into a new thread. I’m getting rather lost on where a problem is and how we’re supposed to help further.

    Do things work as intended out of box (before copying your 1.4.4 database over it?)


  • Developer

    @lebrun78 Have you checked the apache and PHP-FPM logs yet? See my signature.



  • Trying to import from an 1.4.4 export unsuccessful for images,hosts and users .
    Is there log for imports ?


  • Senior Developer

    @lebrun78 I’m not understanding here.

    You made a change only to put it back in place and then test and found it’s still an issue?

    This doesn’t make sense to me.

    You have some customization going on. I don’t know where in the customization the issue is occurring.

    By having it clean, you should be at what is needed for things when they’re working properly.

    If you’re still getting error 500 from the boot.php, then chances are you will have an error in your php-fpm/www-error.log

    You are trying to do too many things and we can’t help you if you’re doing that.

    “I did that, but then I did this and it still isn’t working” doesn’t help because we don’t know at what point things stopped working.

    If you started with a 100% clean database, do things work? I’d imagine if it were such a problem, i’d be seeing it too as I run working-1.6 for testing.

    Should I restart from scratched, installed and import from 1.4.4 export files for images, hosts, snapins

    Definitely better to ex/import that stuff instead of using a complete DB dump from 1.4.4!!



  • @Sebastian-Roth
    with the restoration of the base, it seemed to work well.
    Should I restart from scratched, installed and import from 1.4.4 export files for images, hosts, snapins?



  • it’s a brand new server, (new hardware, new centos 8.0 distribution) except the fog database I restored.
    I would like to keep machines, images, snapins configurations

    The configuration on my test server was recovered by restoring the server’s mysql database in 1.4.4, so the boot menus are normally good

    Uhhhhmmm, not a good idea. FOG 1.6 is quite different to 1.5.x and even more to 1.4.4!! I am pretty sure your setup is now totally messed up with a DB recovery form 1.4.4 state.

    When you initially setup the 1.6 server, did you install plain from scratch or did you start from a copy of an old server? It’s very hard to help if we only know part of what exactly you did.



  • @Tom-Elliott

    Hello

    I tried by resetting the menu; but that does not work, the deploy menu runs in a loop.

    The configuration on my test server was recovered by restoring the server’s mysql database in 1.4.4, so the boot menus are normally good


  • Senior Developer

    @lebrun78 You have a custom Boot.php file?

    Maybe the output from PHP is perfect, but how IPXE is interpretting the information is causing the issue.

    I’m very confused what you’re trying to do with your menu. And it’s almost difficult to break it down to it’s constituant parts.

    Can you reset your “Deploy” ipxe menu to:

    params
    param mac0 ${net0/mac}
    param arch ${arch}
    param username ${username}
    param password ${password}
    param qihost 1
    isset ${net1/mac} && param mac1 ${net1/mac} || goto bootme
    isset ${net2/mac} && param mac2 ${net2/mac} || goto bootme
    

    and see if things are working. Feel free to copy your original menu items too, so you don’t lose it, but my guess is the error you’re seeing is in your customization.

    http://fogus/fog/service/ipxe/boot.php

    So if you go to the above url directly all returns properly?



  • @Tom-Elliott
    I have nothin (so no error) in /var/log/php-fpm/www-error.log and /var/log/php-fpm/error.log when running boot.php on the client


  • Senior Developer

    @lebrun78 This error makes little sense.

    I would understand the PHP error if you were actually in FOS environment, but you’re not. Your getting error 500 when loading the boot.php file.

    Can you have a machine go to the boot.php file and tail the php-fpm error log? This should present the problem immediately. The boot.php doesn’t call FTP at that point, so this message seems unrelated (though would need to be fixed as well).

    @lebrun78 Please take a look at the apache and PHP-FPM error logs (see my signature) and post here. With 5xx server error we should get a proper message in the logs as well.

    Hello Sebatian
    Here it is:
    [12-Nov-2019 08:41:49 UTC] PHP Warning: ftp_login(): Login incorrect. in /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/fogftp.class.php on line 274

    Also,

    Added Link directly now to the Menu bar.

    Hopefully that helps make it so much more accessible.

    Thank you Tom-Elliott

    FOG Client url is:

    http://<ipoffog>/fog/management/index.php?node=client

    You can go to this url directly.

    The other way to access is to choose Client Settings -> Home Tab -> Then click the click here link.

  • New problem
    When I try to deploy via task , deploying works.
    But when I try to deploy by boot menu on the client, I get:

    http://fogus/fog/service/ipxe/boot.php...  HTTP 5xx Server Error (http://ipxe.org/1d0c6598)
    Could not boot: HTTP: 5xx Server Error (http://ipxe.org/1d0c6598)
    

    Thank you for your help,

    Arnaud

    where could I dowload client installer from the web interface ?

    As Tom is mostly working on this I can’t tell you from the top of my head. @Tom-Elliott?

    Though I can give you an official link: https://github.com/FOGProject/fog-client/releases/download/0.11.16/SmartInstaller.exe
