Virtual Fog Setup Connection Error

  • Hello,
    I’m currently in a Systems Administration class at my university. I have decent amount of experience with fog in the class room and real world. I have gotten the fog server setup on ubuntu 12.04 desktop, my windows 7 enterprise client connects to it and i can see the PXE boot menu. However, when i queue a task to upload an image i get an error saying:


    Then it says: Fatal Error: Failed to mount the NFS Volume.

    Has anyone run into this error before or know a solution? Both the server and client are being hosted on VMware Workstation 10, both are using IDE HDDs, on a host-only network.

    My physical machine has a intel 2500k sandybridge, 16gb ram, 1.5tb western digital HDD and 128gb Crucial SSD on a wired internet connection.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

  • Still getting that same error after restarting those services.

  • Thanks Tom, I’ll try that later tonight or tomorrow. I’m running 0.32

  • What version of FOG You using? 0.32, 0.33b?

    My guess, is as you’re running on ubuntu you need to restart the services for nfs/portmap with:
    [code]sudo service portmap restart
    sudo service nfs-kernel-server restart[/code]

  • In addition, i can’t register hosts via the quick registration on the PXE boot menu. I have checked for the .mntcheck files and they are not there. I did
    [B]touch /images/dev/.mntcheck [/B]
    [B]touch /images/.mntcheck [/B]


    /images *(ro,sync,no_wdelay,insecure_locks,no_root_squash,insecure)
    /images/dev *(rw,sync,no_wdelay,no_root_squash,insecure)
    [B]/data/images *(ro,sync,no_wdelay,insecure_locks,no_root_squash,insecure)[/B]
    [B]/data/images/dev *(rw,sync,no_wdelay,no_root_squash,insecure)[/B]

    but this didn’t change anything.[B][/B]
