• I am new to FOG. I am running FOG 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit. I am having an issue with the MYSQL database. When I browse to the server I get the page that asks you to run the update. When this happens TFTP and PXE stop working. If I re-run the FOG installer , FOG will run normally for a few hours. Anybody have any ideas?

  • Testers

    Untold bug fixes, greater speed on upload and download, additional features. It is well worth it in my opinion.

  • Thank you for your help that got me up and running. I have been researching the FOG Trunk and I am curious what the advantages are to using the trunk? I am new to FOG so please forgive me if this sounds like a stupid question.

  • @atarone That will work, but I’d also tell you that FOG 1.3.0 is just around the corner and the current FOG Trunk is nearly ready, and you may even need the features that FOG Trunk offers… But the choice is yours of course.

    I run FOG Trunk in production at 7 different buildings in my organization.

  • Wayne,

    Thank you for the information. I will try downgrading to Ubuntu 13 as we are still in the testing stages and are still proofing out a deployment. I will let you know how it goes. Thank you again!

  • It’s because 1.2.0 is configured to use to access the database from itself. Ubuntu 14.04 and newer doesn’t like this. It causes the DB and other things to go wonky and crash.

    You could move to Ubuntu 12 or 13 if you want to stick with FOG 1.2.0

    Or you could move to FOG Trunk which works on 14.04 and newer.
