SOLVED FOG_STORAGENODE_MYSQLPASS Viewing the text


  • r6142

    I just got done setting up a storage node at the house so I can thoroughly test out the aspects of it.

    I have to say I had difficulty with getting the FOG_STORAGENODE_MYSQLPASS to stay as clear text.

    I ended up having to click on the “eye”, and drag off of the eye so my mouse-up action didn’t happen on the eye for the password to stay clear text.

    This password is needed for a FOG Storage node installation.

    I’m using a chromebook to access the web interface, so I’m using the chrome web browser.

    Is anyone else having the same issue? I think this should be made easier since this field is specifically pointed to during installation, and copy/paste is the answer for getting it.


  • @Wayne-Workman yes. This is because the Storage Nodes can also be responsible for the “Checking in/Completion” of tasks.


  • @Tom-Elliott Does a storage node need write access to the DB?


  • @Wayne-Workman while a nuisance I kind of did this on purpose. Why? Because it is a password that can be used to login to the db and has permissions to edit the fog database. That said I did display the field again.
