"Download task failed to create" when trying to add multiple download tasks
Berend de Boer
Hi All, when I have a single client and set it to download an image, all works fine. But when I try to schedule a download task for same image for 2nd client (in same group as client 1), I get “Download task failed to create for client2 with image Windows 7. To setup download task, you must first upload an image”
I have to wait till client1 is finished (or perhaps started) before I can do the 2nd one. I cannot use udp multicast as that will grind my network to a halt, so rather update clients in batches.
Using fog 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 14.04.
Is there a fix somewhere?
Check this out on the wiki
Had the same issue myself a while back and this resolved it.
@Berend-de-Boer Perhaps your FOG server is under powered in some fashion? Perhaps even a slow network connection could cause this?

It’s not scheduling. I just click on a client to immediately download. First one works.
Second one gives me that message. When first one has started, I can continue with the 2nd one.
So it’s annoying as I can not quickly click click click schedule a couple of clients for immediate deployments.
This is an interesting problem. To be clear - you say that you can create a download task set to start immediately and it works just fine, but when you try to schedule a download task using the same image it fails?
The error you report is normally associated with incorrect FTP credentails. Although I’d recommend you running through these steps just to be sure, I don’t think this is your issue: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Troubleshoot_TFTP
Scheduled tasks rely on time and timezones… Perhaps try to set your timezone in FOG 1.2.0 ? you’ll need to edit a file somewhere to do that. There’s something in the WiKi about it, I’ll try to find it.
