Imaging a RAID



  • Good Morning All,
    I’ve been using FOG for a few months now and have things working pretty good. Thanks for the support here on the forums. I’m back to see if there is an issue with imaging a RAID drive. I looked around the WIKI but nothing stands out about the subject. I’ve got and eval of win 2012 I’m setting up on a Raid5. The inventory goes ok but when I try to image it I get unable to move /images/dev/mac address to /images/name-of-image.

    Has anyone successfully imaged a Raid drive with a hardware controller?

    Thanks,

  • I have imaged a wide range of dell Poweredge models with Various raid setups. Mostly Perc cards with RAID 5 configs.

    To assit in your original post: the issue [B]“Unable to move /images/dev/mac address to /images/name-of-image[/B]” is very common, and you may be able to resolve it here: [URL=‘http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Images_Directory_Permissions’]Link to wiki discussing Image Directory Permissions[/URL]

    and Jaymes is correct, you may be required to run a different kernel to accomplish this. However, do not be frightened by the entire build your own kernel thread… You may be able to get by using the “Kitchen Sink” kernel which is readily available for download.
    Else, many other users including myself have compiled kernels that you can try.

    I would start by providing more information to the community so we can try to make your experience a little bit less time consuming. (machine make and model and other hardware details)

    For something like this you will more than likely need to compile a kernel to accept the controller hardware.

    You can start by using the kitchen sink kernel and if that still doesn’t work then try compiling your own. It’s really simple to do and it doesn’t take too terribly long, maybe about 10-15 min.
