Image ID must be numeric ...

  • Hello everybody,

    First, I will ask you to be lenient with me and my english because I’m a french student …
    So I’m in course training in a University and I have to make a FOG server to deploy system image in computer room.

    I feel I am close to, and I have a little problem who Internet forums don’t speak a lot … Blue screen appears and it’s like uploading is begining but an other blue screen appears and it tells me “Image ID must be numeric”…

    Please, if you know what it means …

  • I remarked files w7opt620 in /images and 00XXXX… in /images/dev I have created disappear when I try a reboot !
    If it can help you …

  • The file exists on the server.

  • Does the file/folder:

    already exist on the server?

  • Sorry for time of answer.
    It’s a “multiple partition image - single disk” for Windows7.
    Machine I want to upload is a physic machine; my server is a virtual.
    My last error is: "unable to move /images/dev/00XXXXX… to /images/w7opt620 !

  • A few questions:
    Which image type are you using?
    Is the machine from that you want to upload the image, a virtual machine? If not has it UEFI or/and GPT?

    Edit: Was the last error that with unable to move … to …?

  • During the boot, I find all error I solved previously… I take back a copy of this afternoon of my virtual machine.

  • How Tom wrote, you should delete the file, restart the upload task and look if the upload works.

  • Okay, I arrived on the FOG menu … What I must to do ?

  • The file name is the mac of the pc, only delete this file. The file named default is the fog boot menu.

  • But in /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/, there are two files: 01-XX… and default. And in the 01-XX file, there is it:

    "# Created by FOG Imaging System

    DEFAULT fog

    LABEL fog

    kernel fog/kernel/bzImage

    append initrd=fog/images/init.gz root=/dev/ram0 rw ramdisk_size=127000 ip=dhcp dns= type=up img=w7opt620 … "

    Sorry if I take you a lot of time and thank you for your patience …

  • Don’t delete the whole folder. Just delete the file that is named:
    01-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX Where the XX’s represent the MAC address of the system you’re trying to get to upload the image.

  • Are you sure I have to do this ? This folder contains a lot of information for fog …

  • neither.

    Delete the 01-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX from the /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/ folder.

  • I have to delete the 01-XX file from /images or from /images/dev ?..

  • I’m really worried about the task creation scheme you’re seeing more than anything. We’ve had to modify the 01-XX… file to get you to a sort-of working state.

    Can you do me a favor and delete the 01-… file, remove the task from the queue, if it isn’t already removed, and then recreate the Upload task?

  • Tom please … Your help is so precious for me as I cannot take place any more 🙂
    The new error message is “unable to move /images/dev/00XXXXX… to /images/w7opt620”

    In /images :
    01XX… dev w7opt620

    In /images/dev :

    ls -ln /images :
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 1000 0 0 févr. 11 14:20 01XXX…
    drwxrwxrwx 2 1000 0 1024 févr. 11 14:46 dev

    ls -ln / :
    drwxrwxrwx 3 1000 0 1024 févr. 11 14:45 images
    Ideas ?

  • I did the sql request and the result is “1”; so I add imgid=1 at the end of the append line and message error changed. It is a problem in my different files, so I will go to look it and I will tell you evolution !
    Thank you very much Tom !!! 😄

  • No,

    the numeric ID of w7opt630.

    It will be in your mysql database as a number. So you look for (on the FOG database):

    [code]select imageID from images WHERE imageName=‘w7opt620’;[/code]

  • So, I add imgid=w7opt620 at the end of the append line ?
    (w7opt620 is the one image id I know …)
