Bugs in FOG 0.33



  • Blackout:

    Can you give us your recommended setting for a Windows 7 image? Specifically, for testing purposes, should I keep the 100MB Windows partition on my Windows 7 images and set OS to “windows 7”? If I don’t keep the 100MB partition, do I need to change the OS setting for the host to “vista”? I hadn’t heard this before, but it was mentioned here:

    [url]http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/windows-7-no-100mb-partition.670/[/url]

    I’d just like to make sure that we are on the same page so that my feedback is useful to you.

    Thanks,

    –astrouga

    I looked into the ID issue but i could not replicate it. I tested emptying my Hosts table and creating a new host via the GUI.
    This worked as intended giving the first host an ID of 1. I have no tested this on a fresh install, but it did work as intended as of ~860

    How did you add the host? Via the GUI or another means?

    I used the gui. It was strange because I added a host, then pulled an image from the host to the server. When I went to add another host, it over-wrote my first host. I didn’t realize this at first, but this is when I started seeing the ID issue. I’ll load 872 and see if I can reproduce.

    I’ll give this a go too. I tried it on 871, and the imaging process seemed to work, but the host I downloaded the image to did not boot. I’ll pay closer attention on the next test.

    Great to hear it’s all working well. The latest tools provide a good performance boost by properly aligning drive sectors.

    Windows XP has some issues with the aligning etc as it’s installer still uses start sector 63.

    If someone could test an NTFS re sizable image for Windows 7 that would help a lot.

    While testing 0.33 you should have the following in your ‘php.ini’

    error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED
    display_errors = On

    I have fixed the call_user_method_array() issue.

    872

    • FOGPageManager: render(): Replaced deprecated call_user_method_array() call with call_user_func() - dropped argument pass as PHP Strict was throwing errors if the FOGPage class did not expect the $argument - $this->arguments is accessible in FOGPageManager but should not be required
    • schemaupdater: Fixed wrong field type on Task State name field - this fixes ‘state’ icons no showing correctly - need to write a better schema updater to sync my dev server with svn


  • [quote=“astrouga, post: 3489, member: 907”]

    I fixed it by changing the line to:
    call_user_method_array($method, $class,array($args));
    Now the pages are displaying properly.
    [/QUOTE]

    After the change above, I only had one issue more issue. It is possible that others won’t experience it, but I’ll mention it anyway. The first host I added got an hostID=0 in the hosts table. Every time I tried to do anything Fog spit back an error about the ID being “0”. I wasn’t able to add any more hosts or upload/download an image until I manually changed the ID to “1” in the hosts table. Then everything worked.

    Imaging of a Windows 7 disk “multiple partition image - single disk (not resizeable)” worked like a charm. I imaged a Dell Latitude D830. Image uploaded fine, client rebooted properly, task was removed. Download was fine, client rebooted, task removed. Also, for some reason, all of the speed issues I was encountering disappeared. Everything worked better than it ever has in our environment. I’ll have to test a desktop or two and see if everything is OK.

    This is real progress. Thanks for the work.

  • I just pulled the latest SVN and was able to confirm the blank loading. With display_errors = On in php.ini:
    [CODE]Warning: call_user_method_array() expects exactly 3 parameters, 2 given in /var/www/fog/lib/fog/FOGPageManager.class.php on line 133 [/CODE]
    Loads directly below the Dashboard header.



  • Sorry, yes I get the same error each time I click on a link:

    [Tue May 15 10:08:03 2012] [error] [client hiddingMyIP] PHP Warning: call_user_method_array() expects exactly 3 parameters, 2 given in /var/www/fog/lib/fog/FOGPageManager.class.php on line 133, referer: [url]http://hiddingMyIP/fog/management/index.php?node=host[/url]

    (of course the referrer portion changes depending on the link I try)

    If you look at line 133 of /var/www/fog/lib/fog/FOGPageManger.class.php, I see:
    call_user_method_array($method, $class);

    I fixed it by changing the line to:
    call_user_method_array($method, $class,array($args));

    Now the pages are displaying properly.

    BTW, this function is deprecated as of PHP 4.1.0.

    [quote=“astrouga, post: 3458, member: 907”]Just installed 871 on a clean ubuntu machine. All of the webpage content below the title on an page is blank. For example, on the main page, I see the icons and the title “Dashboard”, but there is nothing below the “Dashboard”. Similarly, if I click on the “Image Management” icon, I see “Image Management” and a menu on the left with “New Search, List All Images, New Image”, but if I click on “New Image” I just see the same page. It does not load the content below “Image Management”.

    Effectively I can’t do anything.[/quote]
    Check /var/log/apache2/error.log

    Any PHP errors being reported?

    871

    • Boot image: NTFS Resize: Windows XP: Upload: Partition start sector is now detected and used when recreating the partition for resize - throws error if not 63
    • Boot image: NTFS Resize: Windows XP: Download: Sets start sector to 63 (same as xp.mbr) - new tools use 2048 for sector alignment, but this will corrupt images made with a start sector of 63
    • Boot image: Maybe sleeps reduced
    • Boot image: Some outputs made consistent
    • PHP Strict warning updates
    • Service script updates
    • All of these updates should make non-resize imaging work as intended. Resizeable windows xp should work, vista and 7 are untested

  • Developer

    I’ve found some problems with NTFS resizing - the cylinder boundary issues with new versions of fdisk etc

    I’ll have something committed today to fix these problems.

    Blackout : Yes

    OK , Thank you, I will try monday ( saturday and Sunday are days off).
    Maybe there is a problem because we use Logical volume manager.


  • Developer

    I just ran a test, non resizable partition options are working. resizable is not.

    I will look into this more. No doubt it’s service scripts related as im currently working on them.

  • Sorry, I’ve been out a week. Just gave trunk 866 a whirl on Ubuntu 12.04. I did an upgrade over another beta.

    When I try to upload an image, the image is being written to “/images/dev” now. When the image process finishes, my client just spit out an “*” on a single line and that repeated until I rebooted the client. It looks like at the time the image upload task finished, the error log in /var/log/apache2 has the following error. It repeated until I rebooted the client:

    (Note: I’ve removed my client ip from the output below and replaced it with “ipAddressOfClient”)

    [SIZE=3][SIZE=2][SIZE=3][SIZE=2]
    [SIZE=3]I manually moved the image folder out of “/images/dev”, updated my image definition and downloaded it to a client. When the dump finished, the client screen repeated the following until I power-cycled it:[/SIZE]

  • BLackout apoligies it was me being an idiot your busy enough with out me being inpatient after i dropped that message i left the installer going for a bit and all came up fine in 0.33b. thanks for response tho cheers


  • Developer

    864 + 865

    • Installer: Updated version to 0.33BETA
    • Installer: Redhat: Updated PHP packages to be install - thanks Fernando Gietz

  • Developer

    863

    • MACAddress->getHost(): Now checks Additional MAC Addresses for a Host match
    • service/Pre_Stage1.php: Lots of love - has been converted to a try{}catch style script
    • FOGBase: Moved getClass() from FOGCore to here - all FOG classes should now be able to access $this->getClass() instead of $this->FOGCore->getClass()
    • Host: Added: getActiveTask(): Finds a Task that has the state of ‘Queued’, ‘Checked-In’ or ‘In Progress’ (1, 2, 3) - Want to get the Active Task for a Host via MAC? $this->getClass(‘MACAddress’, $mac)->getHost()->getActiveTask() or $MACAddress->getHost()->getActiveTask()
    • MACAddress: Now correctly constructs FOGBase
    • MACAddress: Added: getMAC() - calls getMACWithColon()

    I may have broken some stuff as i have not tested yet

    These updates provide an easier way to access Active Tasks and data related to service scripts.
    The service scripts will eventually be replaced with OOP versions.
