ALL Snapins Disappeared Last Night
I don’t even know what to say. All our snapins were failing this morning, I look over in /opt/fog/snapins and the only thing there is a new snapin one of my guys made this morning, everything else is gone. We recently migrated from an older FOG server on old hardware, so I can scp the files back over, but I would guess it’s going to happen again.
I seem to remember seeing a post on here a while back about a guy having snapins disappear but I couldn’t find it this morning.

See update in other post linked above.
I’ve added @Wayne-Workman’s code and actually (I think) improved upon the snapins creations/edits altogether. Hopefully this is properly solved. Thanks for the patience.
I posted this in the other thread that I hijacked from IT Solutions, but I’ll post here too to make it easier for you.
I copied my snapin files back over from my old server, and I opened an existing snapin and uploaded a new version and the other snapins files are still there.
I created a new snapin, uploaded a new file, and the other files are still there.
I created a new snapin and selected an existing file and it wiped out all my snapin files.
My guys are saying
“Because after I uploaded the new Chrome, the list of files disappeared and only the one I uploaded was there.
As in, where it says “Snapin File (Exists)” where I can select already uploaded files. It had all the other files listed, then when I made the new spapin and uploaded Chrome, they all vanished, except the new chrome.”
@apathetic_admin I’m at the hospital with the wife right now so I can’t really provide any fixes. This isn’t a good thing for obvious reasons but because I can’t push any fixes and you have a backup of the snapins you need to be there, we can get more information so I can better and quickly fix the problem when back at a computer proper.
If uploading a new snapin file doesn’t delete the snapins in the directory, can you try creating a new snapin but use one of the existing snapin files. If that doesn’t delete the files, can you try creating a new snapin without associating any snapin file? Of course please test all three scenarios regardless so we can get an overall understanding of potential pitfalls.
@Tom-Elliott I’m going to put my replies into the other guys post over under bugs so as to keep them all in one place.
Just trying to get the information. The snapins got deleted after the creation of a new snapin? Was a new file uploaded when this snapin was created?
