• Hi all.

    I am all new to this FOG, but I love it so far.

    I have installed ubuntu server 12.04 lt’s running on Microsoft Azure and installed FOG 0.32 on it. So far I am able to do everything except upload or download a image.
    When ever i try to upload a image from the host i get the following error:

    mounting on /images failed: bad file descriptor.

    I have followed most guides i could find like:

    but no luck.

    I have oppend the follwing ports:
    [FONT=Calibri]FTP – tcp 20,21[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri]SSH – tcp 22[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri]TFTP – udp 69[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri]HTTP(s) – tcp 80,443[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri]Portmap – tcp/udp 111[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri]NFS – tcp/udp 2049[/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri]RDS - 3389[/FONT]

    So now I am lost for ideas. So any help will be more then welcome


    When i ping on port 20 it says closed, been trying all day to open the port without luck!

  • It would seem I have nfs-common installed:

    root@fogserver:~# locate nfs-common

    But none in /etc/init.d. There is one in /etc/default, is this the one i’m looking for?

  • locate nfs-common if you have locate and updatedb ready.

  • Type whereis nfs-common. I have a Debian system, but that should work on Ubuntu Server. Also there should be a file in the /etc/init.d directory as that is where start up scripts are stored. If that command returns nothing than the service is not installed. You can try doing so manually by using apt-get install nfs-common.

  • I only see nfs-kernel-server. How did you locate and correct the nfs-common?

  • is nfs-common and nfs-kernel-server running? If so try going to /etc/init.d and listing the contents. You should see two files named nfs-common and nfs-kernel-server. I had a problem where those files had been renamed by the installer for some bizarre reason which caused issues with image upload similar to the ones you experienced.
