"Can't read the following volume file" error after Ubuntu 12.04 update

  • Hello all,

    I realize that this error message has been referenced in the forums before, and I’ve read through all those files without much resolution to this issue, so here goes:

    I have a FOG server running Ubuntu 10.04 that I just upgraded to 12.04. I did an “in-place upgrade” from the terminal. After the upgrade, everything seemed to be ok until we started to try and deploy an image.

    Whenever we deploy an image now, we get the following error message:

    [QUOTE]“Can’t read the following volume file”
    Enter another full path[/QUOTE]

    The image in question has been on our servers for over a year. It is a Windows 7 image we created using the “Multiple Partition/Single Disk” image type. We have deployed it hundreds of times. It has always been just 2 files. d1p1.img and d1p2.img There has never been any d1p2.img.001 files.

    I went so far as to delete the image files (assuming they were corrupted) and created BRAND NEW image files and reuploading them. On the deployment, the same error appears above.

    I also attempted to deploy another image to a different computer, and the same issue happens. It is also a Windows 7 image using “Multiple Partition/Single Disk” type.

    Based on the previous posts, I have attempted the following:

    Made copies from other servers
    Deleted image files and made fresh uploads
    changed permissions on files [attempted using root or fog]
    re-ran the fog install script

    All without solution.

    I would appreciate any help or advice you can offer. I’m very comfortable in Linux and could be easily directed if pointed in the right direction.

    EDIT: Also would like to point out that it’s not just Windows 7 images with “multiple partition/single disk” type images, it’s also Windows XP single partition images. It appears that ALL of my images won’t deploy. At this point, I’m not sure if it’s a partimage problem or something else.

  • I hate to tell you this, but I had to blowout my fog server and start over. Also, any images I created during the reign of 12.04 had to be removed as well. The recovery wasn’t that bad since I backup my SQL database, tftpboot folder, and images folder manually. Until a new version of FOG comes out, I’m staying at 10.04.

  • I have the same problem after the update to 12.04 LTE.

    The image starts example: /images/<filename>/d1p1.img but stops random.

    Only big files produced this error not smal files.

    Please help
