Best way to update to Fog.33b?



  • Good day to all,

    I am running a Fog server, version .32 and have been trouble imaging new hp laptops like the Probook 650. From what I read so far updating my version to .33b should take care of it. I was just wondering what would be the best way for me to go about it. I have read that a fresh install is best, as well as seen that I should be able to download the fog_0.33b.tar.bz2, extract it, and run the install. I have also tried downloading the bzImage but couldn’t get it to work. My fog server is running Ubuntu 12.04.

    [quote=“Joseph Waldfogel, post: 29366, member: 23569”]Thanks, for the firewall tips, unfortunately none have worked. I have gotten systems to image though. So for now, atleast until I get some of these systems off my plate; I am imaging machines as is. The question I have now is, when I set up Virtual box do I need to change the nat ftp setting to undionly.kpxe. If this needs to be addressed with a new post let me know and I will do so.[/quote]

    I don’t NAT in Virtual Box, I run bridged.

  • [quote=“Joseph Waldfogel, post: 28648, member: 23569”]I get “iptables: unrecognized service.”[/quote]

    Try: [CODE]sudo service ufw stop[/CODE]

    That’s ubuntu’s Universal Firewall Service



  • I get “iptables: unrecognized service.”

    [quote=“Joseph Waldfogel, post: 28633, member: 23569”]Ok… I tried something else. I went to the localhost and tried loading the fog config page and it worked, I am able to edit my config, and save changes. but when I navigate to the ip and try to check it, it still comes up blank. So…to me this indicates that Apache is setting everything up under the localhost and I need to change it in Apache to my static IP, sound about right?[/quote]

    It sounds, more like, firewall isn’t allowing connection.

    Localhost will work, but IP isn’t able to.

    Try running [code]service iptables stop[/code] and try accessing the page by IP.

  • Right, when I set fog up on my home network it worked first try, and I am using 12.04 desktop at home. I have even brought my 12.04 from home and installed it on this system and ended up with the same results after installing fog. Has anyone ever posted about trouble installing fog on specific server models, if so I’ll check them out?

    i’m sure you can get fog to work on the desktop version, but i prefer to use the low-overhead gui-less versions of linux for servers. there’s nothing about installing and configuring fog that you can’t do from the command line, or from the browser of another computer.



  • Ok, Server you say… I was told by my co-workers to use the desktop version, might that have something do with me not having all of the required packages?


  • Developer

    nothing is required beyond the standard server installation and running updates before installing fog on ubuntu 12.04 server



  • Still no luck, I downloaded Fog 1.0.1 at home threw it on a flash drive and brought it in. It still installs with a blank page. I have been thinking that it has to have something to do with my Ubuntu set up prior to installing Fog. Is there something on the wiki page or another forum post any one knows of that gives a list of packages or apps that I need to setup before installing Fog on Ubuntu 12.04 (other than the standard wiki installation page)?



  • Not that I know of. The cat who set this up before I started here was able to get it installed and working. Co-workers told me he did “something to trick it into working,” but none of them know what it was, and I have no way of contacting the guy. I think I am going to try and put the fog installer on a flash drive and copy it over to the server and install it. Bypassing my work network of course.

    No… I’m really not sure what is happening to you. Do you maybe have some sort of different firewall or weird AV that may be stripping out some of the FOG files?



  • Ok, I thought it was the fog management page that was messed up because of what it said in the error log. It is not; it’s the fog configuration page that is blank. All the other pages are there and I have also been able to ping existing clients after re-loading my database from backup, it also shows my snap-ins and images. I tried installing fog on my network at home and had no issues, it was gravy. After that I tried to install it on a laptop here at work completely fresh, and I still get the blank config page. Since having a successful install outside of my network, and none inside, I’m now thinking that the issue is with my network. But from what I understand from the forums, the only thing I need to change from my previous version is setting up the DCHP server rules 66 & 67 (which I have already done). Is there anything that I could be missing as far as my network setup is concerned?



  • Everything, it is a blank page. The Apache log gives me this error: [Thu May 15 13:55:54 2014] [error] [client 10.5.96.220] File does not exist: /var/www/access, referer: [url]http://10.5.96.220/fog/management/index.php?node=about[/url]

    What specifically is not there?



  • Once I get the msg to update the schema from the install I am opening up Firefox (from the server), updating the schema, logging in and finally going to the fog management page so I can configure it but it is not there.

    Are you accessing the fog UI from the same subnet as the server?



  • Today I updated my Fog database from my back-up just for giggles. The fog man page is still missing. I seem to be going around in circles; wipe, install, wipe, install and not making any more progress. What else could be going on with my system that could be causing my installs to not finish properly? I haven’t seen any thing new in my apache error logs, and mySQL logs are all empty. When I do the install I also don’t notice anything wrong.
