primary hard drive
Ok so I have been using fog for several weeks now and have all the Linux and Windows distros I want properly installed. Yet thier is something that plagues me. How do I set the primary hard drive on multi drive systems? In windows the drives are named different than in Linux or do I use the whole dev/ sda scheme. Thank you in advance.

@Wayne-Workman yes, I have looked at this however I am not experiencing this inits… issue. Yet it is clear some are.
the only issue i experienced was the system failing to gain access to the ftp. but then i realized during the setup after lines (What is the storage location for your images directory? (/images)

- New password set for:
i then figured out that it assighned me totally new creditials i needed to input in the storage and tftp settings and wala back at smotth operating.
@dureal99d It is but at the moment I’m wondering if something is up with the inits… see this post: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/6164/init-is-broke-not-sure-why
@Wayne-Workman Thanks for your help!!! I have successfully updated too 5417. I assume this is the latest version!!! Nice!!!
@dureal99d I use the developmental versions referred to as FOG Trunk. At home I have it running on bare metal because… who cares. At work, I have it virtualized inside of Hyper-V and take snapshots before every update, before every major change, and Every Single Friday - along with regularly exporting my DB, Hosts, and images as well. I do it this way at work so that I have not one safety net - but many safety nets. I’d never recommend FOG Trunk on bare metal in a production environment, but some people do it anyways - it’s their choice.
Backup your DB and Hosts first (
FOG Configuration -> Configuration Save -> Export)
Then follow along with one of these methods. I recommend using the SVN method:
@Wayne-Workman I know its a bit off topic but can message me and tell me how to install the version of fog you have. i am using ver 1.2.0 but you clearly have a better version. ive tried to upgrade but failed. just a side note!!
@Wayne-Workman Ok will do!! im going to ty it and i will get back to ya!!
I have one computer at the house with two HDDs, it’s setup in a RAID1 configuration using an expansion card. In order to take an image of this system, I just use
/dev/sda, however this may not (and probably will not) work for most RAID setups… I got lucky on this one, it all comes down to how the card handles the drives and how it makes them available to the OS.
That said, with RAID not in the mix, yeah just use /dev/sda most likely.
