Uploading / Mounting DFS fails
So, quite a newbie to Linix & FOG but have managed to scrape by and set up FOG, it’s nearly there but am falling over on one last hurdle.
On trying to connect to DFS share when uploading an image, it tries to connect to 127.0.0.1/share_path_goes_here and fails.
I’m presuming this is because 127.0.0.1 is the IP of the client machine rather than FOG server, I’ve changed the IP of the FOG server to a static address and updated FOG_TFTP_HOST
I found this http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Error_mounting_NFS_server_127.0.0.1 and followed instructions. Still no joy.
config.php settings of
TFTP_HOST - 10.0.X.X
STORAGE_HOST - 10.0.X.X
Am running fog .32 & Ubuntu Server 12.10.
Not sure what I’m doing wrong, any gratefully received!
I’d already gone through and done the &$ to $ trick, was battling with one error after the other setting it up but Google was my friend.
It’s imaging right as rain now.
I managed to sort it in the end - one chmod 777 later and everything is as right as rain
Thanks for the assist!
A machine (client) has to have an IP-address as given by the DHCP server which must be able to route to the FOG server. 127.0.0.1 is localhost and usually connected to the loopback interface and not eth0 (or an other ethX). If you end up with only a loopback device the firmware/driver for the client machine’s networkcard was not a part of the kernelimage.
Second: Ubuntu 12.10 and FOG 0.32 is not something for beginners. Check: http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/php-5-4-fog-0-32.3921/
Which might provide a solution, but at least gives some background information.
