Moving Fog Images



  • Hello Folks,

    I’m currently having an issue in which I just can’t seem to figure out. A little history is my previous FOG machine hardware died. With this it presented the opportunity to create a new one so I updated the OS to 12.04 ubuntu which works and I successfully installed fog. Now I wanted to move my previously created images to this new machine via drive reader to my new fog box but I just can’t figure out how to have fog recognize these copied images on the new machine.

    Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.



  • Awesome thanks I will give this a try I did all but the recreation of the images previously, well tried it and didn’t work but I will try it again.

    Thanks



  • Oh yeah, don’t forget to:

    [CODE]sudo chown -R fog /images
    sudo chmod -R 777 /images
    sudo chmod -R 777 /images/dev[/CODE]



  • You need to copy them to the Images\ folder you have. Whatever you want to call it, but is by default images\ I believe. Make sure you remember that it is case sensitive. Go to your fogserver/fog Web GUI and select Image Management - New Image - Name the Image Name whatever you want - select your Storage Group which is generally default - Image File should be the exact name of your image file on Fog! It takes the spaces out of your Image Name by default so make sure you name this exactly as the image folder or file is on fog. Single Partition will be the File Name and Multi Partition will be the folder name. Then select if it is Single of Multi and hit Add. Do this for all the images and you should be good to go!
