Errors trying to upload an image to FOG

  • Hello Fog, ive got a problem…

    I’ve installed FOG v32 (v0.32) server on Ubuntu 12.04 kernal: 3.11.0-17.31~precise1.
    Every works fine except two things…

    First of all i have to do when i restart my Ubuntu computer:
    Sudo stop tftpd-hpa
    sudo start tftpd-hpa
    Because els i wont start, is there an easy fix for this? Or do i have to make a script?

    As second, when i want to upload a image of HP Prodesk 400 G1 SFF
    The computer comes in the menu of FOG, i’ve tested every option out but he can’t upload a image…

    The FOG tried manually to add him as Hosts like normaly, it doesn’t recognis the MAC addres of the HP Prodesk.

    when i would like to register the HP Prodesk in the FOG menu it says this:
    Menu ill select: Perform full host registration and inventroy.

    No, All of the kernels you use and see are usable across the board.

  • Would there be any issue using this kernel with FOG 1.2.0?

  • Hello Jaymes!
    Thank you for the hint! im gone try it but at this moment Full size images works!
    I have a couple computers left whats have to been imaged because of Windows XP… :P
    For now i’m help out! Thank you very much forum guyz! :)

    I normally use a Gparted live CD to extend my os to the end of the DISK, with Windows there is a command in the sysprep Unattend.xml file that can extend the OS. I am not familiar with doing this in linux without using a tool.

  • Know i have fixed the problem with .mntcheck!
    Now i can make an image en give out an image, only the problem is at this moment he wont resize it again to 150 GB theres a notification that i have to do in CMD (as admin) chkdsk /f.
    I’ve done this a couple times and still it wont work.

    If sombody have an idea? I would be happy!

  • That was a little of the problem but thank you! :D
    I’ve second harddisk there was the problem Linux isn;t that easy what i tought.

    I imaged a computer deploy of the image isn;t working at the moment but i will try to fix it first! ;)

    Set your image type to multiple partition.

    Sounds like the drive you are trying to image has more than one partition on it.

  • I’m back!
    This is the problem at the moment…
    Than it moves on after a min somthing like that!
    After pic01 it move on to pic02.
    I tried other things to in the fog manager, but i cant find out what it realy is…

    Than it goes imaging anyway… and than i says this:


    Kernal from fog what you said i did! :)


    Hope you guys can help me! :(

  • Oooops… Oke, i have to shutdown first my DHCP server…
    I have to fix that first, ill be back. Day after tomorrow! Fine evening!

    An other problem came up… Unfortunately. :(

    You’re not using the kernel I gave you.

    You’re currently, if I’m reading the picture correctly, using 2.6.39_1_FOG_CORE kernel.

    To use my kernel, try these commands on your fog server:
    [code]cd /tftpboot/fog/kernel
    mv bzImage bzImage.orig.2014MAR11
    wget --no-check-certificate -O bzImage

    Reboot the system you’re seeing the panic on.

  • Oke done! Thank you guyz! Im further! :D
    But the host manager doenst recognise the MAC of HP…
    Problem at the moment… :/

  • Developer

    You will need to copy the kernel to the server and place it in /tftpboot/fog/kernel

    Then set the kernel for either that individual host or all hosts(fog settings page).

  • Might be a stupid question… But how do i have to install this kernal (first Linux server)…
    Thank you for you time already…!

  • Thank you! I wil try to fix it! :)

    The tftp-hpa startup issue has been talked about quite a lot across the forums. There is a fix.

    To fix your issue, try my kernel:
