FOG Main Server cannot determine free storage from a fog storage node
i have installed an additional fog storage node (S) imaging and the rest is working but the main fog cannot determine the freespace on the storage node.
I excepted this will work when using fog as storage node.
I made some experiments with nfs and ftp without installing fog there i had the same problems but i thougth this will now work out of the box.
The only change I did for this issue:
Edit the /etc/mysql/my.cnf file (ubuntu)
Look for the line that has something along the lines of:
Make it look like:
sudo service mysql restart
this one is also fixed, my fog db was only accessible from 127.0.0.1 like that no additional storage node can connect fogs db, we changed mysql settings to make it accessible from anyone or in special only the storage node.
@Tom you did the changes maybe you can go deeper with details?
it seems you found it:
Hmm but why are the credentials wrong? I used what is display here:
Howto find out correct credentials?
Hmm it says cannot connect not wrong credentials… hmm db ip is pingable…
From that storage node:
If you run:
mysql -u fogstorage -p'fs1139809790' -h172.19.102.17 fog
Does it connect?
the Config.class.php is fine:
fog main (db): 172.19.102.17
additional storage node (s): 172.19.102.18
The picture above is taken from 172.19.102.18
It must be another problem.
Also: Using the additional storage node is working fine, what is not working is the correct image size on server but that was also wrong with main node, it always shows around 2gb for image on server:
And fog main does not show free space for additional storage node:
I used the following informations from main fog (db) to configure the additional storage node:
This sounds, to me, like the Storage Nodes /var/www/fog/lib/fog/Config.class.php isn’t looking at the Main FOG Server’s database, as is intended. The way a node works, is it simply links to the main FOG Server and uses the main database.
If the main FOG Server’s IP is 10.10.10.25, then the Config.class.php should look something like:
* Defines the database settings for FOG
* @return void
private static function db_settings()
define(‘DATABASE_TYPE’, ‘mysql’); // mysql or oracle
i’ve installed same latest svn on both now, and i still get no free disk space:
If i open freespace.php on new storage node (S) it still want to update a db that isnt existing on a storage node (S).
if i try to connect to the new storage nodes freespace.php i see that:
Why the hell will this displayed? There is no sql database on the storage node (S)…!
FOG Main is SVN (1.2.0)
Storage Node is SVN (Today)
Is that a problem?
