UNSOLVED Not a valid identifier issue when uploading or downloading, FOG 3526

  • Hey guys,
    I was working on some image uploads when I found out that the default location for images had gotten full in the root directory so I tried moving the images to a new location. Ever since then, I’ve been unable to get images to load, with the message ‘/usr/share/fog/lib/partition-funcs.sh: line 124: local: /images/mac address: not a valid identifier’. I’ve tried making a new storage node and group, and I’ve made sure that the FOG GUI is pointing to the right location. Is there some other configuration I need to do to get this working? Thanks.

  • You likely have dirty data in your FOG DB. The easiest way to find the dirty data is to enable remote access on the DB and then connect to the DB using a graphical DB viewer. I would recommend HeidiSQL for this: http://www.heidisql.com/

    There are some pointers for enabling remote access on the DB here: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Troubleshoot_MySQL Forgive the roughness of the article, it’s under construction currently.

    Once connected to the DB, just take your time and look closely at all the data inside the hosts and hostMAC tables. If anything glaringly stands out, make note of that entry, and then just delete that row.

    Each row of host data that you delete will mean you need to go and re-register that particular host (eventually).
