"no mountpoint is specified" error during attempt to deploy



  • I have two PC’s of the same architecture. I setup one and uploaded its image to Fog.
    Now on the second PC, I want to deploy that image.

    The Fog deploy script begins normally, showing the image name and so forth.

    Then it says:

    • Looking for hard disks… Done.
    • Task Completed
    • Changing host name … ntfs-3g: no mountpoint specified

    ntfs-3g 2009.3.8 integrated FUSE 27-third generations NTFS driver

    Copyright … (information about the driver… and its usage)

    Then it aborts and updates the Fog database to say task done.

    Fog server o/s: Ubuntu 12.04
    Fog Vers: 0.32
    Client O/S: Windows 7
    Image type: Multiple Partition Image All Disks (not resizable)



  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 29976, member: 7271”]What is the OS of the image?

    What is the type of the image (raw, single disk, multi-part?)

    It looks like the mbr or gpt tables aren’t being written back. At least not properly.[/quote]

    I may have found something that fixes this.

    I did a deploy-debug on both PC’s.

    Then at the debug prompt:
    # fdisk /dev/sda and then “w” to write it out
    # fog

    Both PC’s seems to be loading. Though I don’t know if this is one-time or I will need to manually do this every time I want to load these machines. Any ideas?

    I might have found a clue to this, but I don’t know how to interpret it.

    I tried to deploy this same image to a third PC (all three PCs are the same hardware)… this is what I noticed:

    The first time, I get an error like this:

    • Checking hard disk: Error: invalid partition table on /dev/sda – wrong signature 0.

    Then on subsequent attempts to deploy, I don’t see that error any more but only the error…
    * Changing host name … ntfs-3g: no mountpoint specified

    The image O/S is Windows 7 (64-bit).
    I first tried image type: Multiple Partition Image All Disks (not resizable)

    I just tried Multiple Partition Image Single Disks (not resizable). This gets:

    • Using hard disk /dev/sda
    • Restoring MBR … Done
    • Checking Hard Disk: Error: invalid partition table on /dev/sda – wrong signature 0.
      Done
    • Task Completed
    • Changing host name … ntfs-3g: no mountpoint specified

    ntfs-3g 2009.3.8 integrated FUSE 27-third generations NTFS driver

    Fog server o/s: Ubuntu 12.04
    Fog Vers: 0.32



  • Still no success. The Multi Partition Single Disk gets me this error when I try to download:


    • Using hard disk /dev/sda
    • Restoring MBR … Done
    • Checking Hard Disk: Error: invalid partition table on /dev/sda – wrong signature 0.
      Done
    • Task Completed
    • Changing host name … ntfs-3g: no mountpoint specified

    ntfs-3g 2009.3.8 integrated FUSE 27-third generations NTFS driver

    Copyright … (information about the driver… and its usage)

    I am running out of ideas…



  • The image O/S is Windows 7 (64-bit).
    I first tried image type: Multiple Partition Image All Disks (not resizable)

    Now I am creating/trying Multiple Partition Image Single Disks (not resizable)

    Fog server o/s: Ubuntu 12.04
    Fog Vers: 0.32



  • I tried creating (uploading) the image as Vista and then tried both downloading at Win 7 or Vista.
    The same kind of errors as noted above.

    Now I am trying to create a new image from the source PC as image type "Multiple Partition Single Disk (not resizable)"
    and Win 7.

    It looks like the mbr or gpt tables aren’t being written back. At least not properly.



  • Update:
    I did see another thread about specifying the image as Windows Vista, even thought it is Windows 7.

    I tried just changing the Fog database to show the client as Vista and deploy.

    When I do this, I get this error instead:


    • Looking for hard disks… Done.
    • Task Completed
    • Changing host name … umount: can’t unmount /ntfs: invalid argument

    Now I am trying this: change the first PC to Vista and uploading a new image. Then I will try to deploy that as Vista on the 2nd PC.
